July News from FSFP

OAKLAND, Calif., July 31, 2023 — Each month, First San Francisco Partners’ newsletter features updates about its data management consulting business, with links to new blog posts, case studies, industry events and more.

Here’s our July 2023 newsletter. If you’re not a subscriber to FSFP’s monthly newsletter, we welcome you to opt in.

Data Governance’s Transformative Impact on Healthcare ERP Initiatives

Kelle O'Neal, Founder and CEO, First San Francisco Partners

Across all industries, data governance is critical to unlocking business potential. We hold to this message because we see how it works daily for our clients and how that impacts their ability to make decisions and changes that positively impact their business.

In this FSFP newsletter, we are sharing several resources exploring how important data governance is, specifically when it comes to the implementation of or migration to an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. You’ll learn why – and how – putting data at the center can be one of the most digitally transformative moves your enterprise-level company can make when it comes to this.

Our prior newsletter shared an in-depth article on data governance’s role in ERP implementation and migration. This month, we take a more detailed look at how data governance is essential in healthcare at its most basic level and how critical it is in ensuring patient safety and privacy, therefore improving patient care. Healthcare organizations can also significantly improve quality and reduce costs by reducing manual errors and increasing data accuracy. Becky Lyons, Senior Consultant at FSFP, explores this topic in detail in our featured article.

And if you missed it live, I encourage you to watch our recent ERP Transformation Fireside Chat, where half-a-dozen of our experienced consultants shared real client success stories, challenges and successes. They discussed the importance of data management in ERP programs and potential obstacles that can arise when companies don’t address data governance from the beginning. (This is the most common scenario, but the adage, “better late than never,” always applies when discussing data solutions.)

Read on because this newsletter has even more helpful information, including two new case studies. I’m confident you will enjoy it!
