BIG DATA & HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS: A HIMSS EVENT
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JUNE 13-14, 2018
Dr. Hook-Barnard serves as director of the UCSF Precision Medicine Platform Committee, which aims to conceptualize and build precision medicine as a central overarching institutional vision at UCSF. She helped launch and continues to partner with the California Initiative for Advancing Precision Medicine (CIAPM). In the UCSF Office of Science Policy and Strategy and the School of Medicine Dean’s Office, she works with scientific experts and leaders from across academia, industry and government sectors to identify and frame scientific opportunities and challenges. From 2008- 2015, Dr. Hook-Barnard worked as a senior program officer with the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM). At the NAS and IOM, she developed and administered a variety of programs, working with academic faculty, scientists, engineers, clinicians, business leaders and policy experts. She served as the study director for six National Academies reports. Dr. Hook-Barnard earned her PhD in Microbiology-Medicine from the University of Missouri.
India Hook-Barnard, director of research strategy at UCSF and executive director of the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine, opens the day with a big picture yet practical discussion of the importance of sharing and applying data in primary care and the role this will play shaping healthcare’s future.
Hook-Barnard asks the key questions: How do we get from point A to B? How can a patient's information follow them from institution to institution, and how can that data improve outcomes and control costs?
She’ll discuss efforts underway in California and ways these lessons can be applied nationwide.
This leadership panel will look at the state of big data and analytics in healthcare and what the next steps are and how to best use the reams of data now so easily available. Today's healthcare leaders are faced with the daunting task of where to put their data to work, and what problems to tackle while also being able to show concrete results.
Our panel of healthcare data experts will discuss the insights emerging – and those likely to emerge - from clinical analytics, the types of data needed to obtain such insights, and the infrastructure - analytics, algorithms, registries, assessment scores, monitoring devices, and so forth - that organizations will need to perform the necessary analyses and to implement changes that will improve care and control costs.
