The Health Resources and Services Administration is using data analytics to manage 90 fiscal 2017 programs that totaled $11 billion in value, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
Adriane Burton, chief information officer at the HRSA, said that the agency developed a data analytics platform to support automation and reporting for a number of these programs that altogether cover 26 million U.S. citizens.
She added that the platform helps HSRA better determine the impact of the health center program.
“We have self-reporting tools, which is another thing that makes it innovative because it allows our users to discover, draw and share insight among their teams,” she said.
The platform has cut the agency’s time spent on reporting by 40 percent since implementation.
The agency currently houses the platform in an on-site data center, and Burton plans to eventually transition the platform to cloud, the report noted.
