BIG DATA & HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS: A HIMSS EVENT
BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 23-24, 2017
UMass Memorial Health Care, with over 1,000 beds, utilizes the power of robust data and analytics to improve the quality of patient care in a variety of areas. One example is the health system’s success with the American Medical Group Associations’ Analytics for Improvement (A4i) collaborative for adult immunizations. Beginning in 2015, UMASS used its already-strong population health structure to increase vaccination rates for all age groups over one year.
Dr. Thomas J. Scornavacca Jr., UMASS senior medical director for population health, will share how the organization leverages population health data and analytics to address gaps in care, create new intervention tools and identify best practices. He will also discuss how UMASS engages providers to increase the chances for population health management success.
Sanford Health is a $4.5 billion health system, serving predominately a rural patient population over a six-state footprint with both payer and provider arms, and possessed a system of decentralized data and analytics.
However, two years ago, Sanford Health embarked on a transformative process of centralizing data and analytics, separate from our IT infrastructure. This journey has yielded countless lessons as we are now a fully centralized team covering all aspects of data and analytics within Sanford ranging from clinical to operational to financial to human resources to health plan.
In this presentation, we will discuss the process of centralizing, the importance of such structure, the need for senior leadership support, and how this is the first step to a robust federated analytics model – built for the future of healthcare data and analytics.
For an ACO, like Iowa's Mercy Health Network, comprised of more than 2,000 doctors and 147 health care affiliate sites, to be successful in the value-based ecosystem, it is imperative to focus on how the ACO uses data to improve population health to succeed in value-based contracts. Furthermore, the importance of data-driven insights for an ACO to recognize the opportunities to minimize cost leakages and maximize the ROI.
This session will provide insights on the data acquisition strategy for an ACO to deliver better clinical and financial outcomes. Attendees will learning why it's better to capture claims data before clinical data and how data can fill gaps in care and help in risk-based interventions. The presentation will cover how to identify the most important measures and validate them and why embedding care management software in the data warehouse is a better option and more .
The focus on data and analytics at UnityPoint Health, the nation's 13th largest nonprofit healthcare system, continues to increase. Analytics capabilities from reporting and descriptive statistics to visualizations and predictive models have been developed through tight alignment to our strategic plan and in close partnership with leaders and providers throughout the organization.
Additionally, the development of a performance resource team that partners analysts, improvement coaches, and industrial engineers is a key connection to improving the health of the patients and communities we serve.
Analytics leaders from UnityPoint Health will share the processes developed, partnerships fosters, and improvements made through three advanced analytics platforms: key performance indicators; dashboard and drill-down platform; reducing readmissions toolkit and long-term financial roadmap.
