How does data collection and utilization impact decision making for providers?

It actually takes the guesswork out of things for providers. When you don’t have the ability to have a clinical pathway or have a built-in understanding of what you need to do with a patient, then judgement sets in. And the more that we can identify the appropriate pathway for a patient, faster and in the most efficacious manner, the better it is for the patient and family and the patient experience. It also allows for a provider to be able to use their judgement in a different way and better understand what that patient experiences and respond to it.
