DYK: Med Device Companies are “Data Driven” but Not Data Savvy

A survey conducted by Reltio to research the priorities and use of data across life sciences, including medical devices, paints a murky picture.  Results show that 55% of life sciences organizations describe themselves as "very data-driven," meaning they use current and historical information about customers, organizations, products, places, and internal teams to generate relevant insights and recommend proactive actions.  A majority of respondents (74%) worry their data is incomplete or missing, while 50% say the insights are not actionable.  More than a quarter (28%) say they still have siloed data (incompatible or not integrated with other data systems), even with millions invested in solutions designed to solve the problem.*
