BIG DATA & HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS: A HIMSS EVENT
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JUNE 13-14, 2018
By Mike Miliard
As hospital and technology leaders try to make sense of the vast flood of structured and unstructured information unleashed these past many years – seeking ways to actually put it all to work toward better care at lower cost – it can be dizzying, hard to decide just where to start first.
At the HIMSS Big Data & Healthcare Analytics Forum, which takes place June 13 and 14 in San Francisco, dozens of forward-thinking healthcare leaders will offer insights into ways that deluge of digital data can be directed toward successful value-based improvement projects.
Analytics means nothing without action, so many speakers will be focusing on how to help lead IT teams, clinicians, data professionals and health systems staff, and help navigate through the constant change that has become the status quo in this industry.
Case in point: Cleveland Clinic Chief Information Officer Ed Marx, whose keynote address will focus on setting strategic course and leading through innovation and transformation. While "most of us would prefer not to change," he said, in the fast-evolving world of 21st Century healthcare, that's a luxury few can afford.
But making use of electronic health record data to effect positive change is a tall order – which is why a diverse slate of speakers over the two-day events will offer their own hard-won insights into how to data, analytics, machine learning, precision medicine tools and other emerging techniques can be put to work driving improvements in clinical, financial and operational efficiencies.Air Max 90 SACAI
