BIG DATA & HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS: A HIMSS EVENT
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - MAY 15-16, 2017
The U.S health care systems broad adoption of EHRs has dramatically increased the quantity of clinical data available electronically. Simultaneously, rapid progress has been made in clinical analytics—techniques for analyzing large quantities of data and gleaning new insights from that analysis. This is all part of the big data “revolution.” As a result, there are unprecedented opportunities to use big data to reduce the costs of health care in the United States.
But what exactly are those opportunities, and how are big data and analytics changing the delivery of care as we know it?
In this opening leadership discussion, our distinguished panel of healthcare data experts discuss the insights 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 while reducing costsNike KD
