This third edition to the award-winning book is a straightforward view of a clinical data warehouse development project, from inception through implementation and follow-up. Through first-hand experiences from individuals charged with such an implementation, this book offers guidance and multiple perspectives on the data warehouse development process – from the initial vision to system-wide release. The book provides valuable lessons learned during a data warehouse implementation at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH&RC) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – a large, modern, tertiary-care hospital with an IT environment that parallels a typical U.S. hospital. This book also examines the value of the data warehouse from the perspectives of a large healthcare system in the U.S. and a corporate health services business unit. Special features of the book include a sample RFP, data warehouse project plan, and information analysis template. A helpful glossary and acronyms list are included.
