Just as healthcare is developing robust analytics for patients, credit unions have a great opportunity to empower members to track their financial health and take actions to improve it.
Being raised in a small town, I never thought about the healthcare I received. I had the same doctor from birth until I moved to college. As long as nothing seemed wrong to him, I felt confident that I was healthy. However, when I moved to a bigger city, everything changed. I was no longer able to rely on my hometown doctor, and I needed a way to monitor and maintain my health. At the same time, the healthcare industry was going through a data revolution. The traditional relationships between doctors and patients were changed forever. In shopping for my new healthcare provider, I felt the most comfortable with the one that had the best analytics and enabled me to make data-driven decisions to improve my health.
