Flag football?

Metrics in healthcare spending.  There’s a massive amount of data.  And, the stats show, 10% of payments under Medicare are improper.  Lots of red flags.

“Red Flags in Medicare Billing,” Wall Street Journal, July 9, 2014 A3  As they say, a billion here, a billion there; eventually, you’re talking real money.

What metrics do you watch on your data?

On a lighter side, taking a page from “Moneyball,” Ultimate Frisbee players are beginning to use statistics to identify the best players and the best strategies.  “Ultimate Geeks: Frisbee Enthusiasts Try to Play a Numbers Game,” Wall Street Journal, July 9, 2014 A1  I honestly didn’t know there’s a smartphone app that maps locations of passes.  No mention of using drones to capture video footage.

Are these information governance issues or just information usage questions?  Is there a difference?
