David Loshin

Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Blog. This is going to be the place for us to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions on all aspects of the information quality and data integration world. I intend this to be a forum for discussing changes in the industry, as well as how external forces influence the way we treat our information asset. The value of the blog will be greatly enhanced by your participation! I intend to introduce controversial topics here, and I fully expect that reader input will "spice it up." Here we will share ideas, vendor and client updates, problems, questions and, most importantly, your reactions. So keep coming back each week to see what is new on our Blog!

Yet another article on impacts of poor data quality in healthcare. Apparently, medication errors (e.g., incorrecly transcribed prescriptions) kill 7000 people and conservatively incur costs of $3.5 billion per year.

No surprise. The number of "data incidents" that involve poor quality or security increase every year. Check out this new BI software company that has a novel solution to drive down such errors. (Disclosure, I do marketing for Panoratio.)
