What Is Data Management?
Data management is how businesses acquire, generate, store, and utilize data in an effective and efficient manner. It utilizes different digital systems and policies to ensure the accuracy, completeness, security, and accessibility of data throughout its lifecycle. The goal of data management is to allow data to prop up decision-making and make your business more productive and efficient, as well as to enhance workflow efficiency.
7 Steps to Improve Your Data Management
Below are seven steps you can take to make your Washington, DC's company's data management more efficient:
- Clarify your data governance policies — Establish clear policies for how data is acquired and stored, including who is responsible for generating or collecting the data and what types of data need to be retained.
- Choose the right data management system — Invest in data management technologies that include workflow automation, storage, and analysis. This can help ensure that data is dependable. Different data management systems also save time and money and reduce difficulty in accessing documents by making information easier to retrieve.
- Organize and standardize data — Make sure data is organized and formatted consistently so that your employees will be able to manage and utilize the data easily.
- Improve data quality — Apply processes to ensure data does not degrade or become compromised, including data validation and checking for mistakes. Regularly reviewing and cleansing data can ensure it's not corrupted or inaccurate.
- Foster data literacy — Urge employees to become more data literate, so they understand how to use data effectively to make informed decisions. Offers resources to help employees understand the purpose of more organized data.
- Establish data security measures — Protect sensitive data from people who should not have access to it. This may include implementing security measures such as firewalls, encryption, and access controls.
- Continuously evaluate and improve — The modern business world is continuously changing. Regularly assess your data management processes and procedures to identify how you can improve.

The Importance Of Data Management For Your Washington, DC Organization
The past years have only underlined the need for Washington companies of all sizes to implement a comprehensive data management plan that takes into account accessability, adaptability, and security. More Washington, DC workers are expecting that the ability to work from home will not only be encouraged but also built upon in the coming years. This means that they will need to access any document from any device, even if their home internet's privacy is not as secure as the standards at your main office.
Technology's unstoppable progression, and how your company plans to adapt to these changes, is also critical when devising a data management strategy. Software platforms that were cutting-edge even two or three years ago can become obsolete and abandoned before you know it. The growing use of cloud-based technologies brings along with it its own concerns: should our Washington, DC firm build our own digital ecosystem, or should we use third-party technology and expect that it stays supported for the near future? Also, when moving between software formats, the ability to maintain the quality of historical data and guarantee full compatibility must also be emphasized.
Good data management must also take into account security and document liability. Older files deteriorate over time, which means that important historical data--or patient information, like fetal monitoring strips, that must be kept to meet industry standards--need to be properly digitized in order to allow access without loss of quality. Storing old physical data also opens up liability issues, as it is impossible to predict if fire or water damage can destroy files in storage. Acting now to preserve and digitize this data reduces both future liability and storage costs, permitting your Washington, DC firm to focus on your core competencies.
