Before joining Stanford, she was a faculty member at UCSF for 10 years where she served in several leadership capacities in clinic operations, medical education and research.
Dr. Mahoney endeavors to provide patient-centered and compassionate services that enable patients to reach their health and wellness goals. Her academic focus is to develop innovative and transformative approaches to proactive and personalized team-based primary care that empowers patients, health care providers, and communities in the U.S. and internationally.
When it comes to establishing a data-improvement process, hospitals and health systems face significant challenges. They have to implement the analytics infrastructure, best practices, and adoption processes to improve care quality and cost.
Building a technology infrastructure is one challenge, but typically not a big one. The greater challenge, the area where most organizations struggle, is how to operationalize data-driven decision-making. How do you create a data-driven culture? How do you make data a part of everyday decision-making? That's where the rubber hits the road.
In this session, our experts, all with deep experience in leading transformation and innovation, share their insights and best practices for creating a data-driven healthcare organization, paying special attention to bring clinicians onboard by creating a transparent process that they can trust.
After two days of presentations looking at big data, analytics and population health, Stanford University’s Chief of General Primary Care Megan Mahoney wraps up the conference with some thoughts on the future of healthcare. As a backdrop to her talk, Dr. Mahoney will discuss how analytics and AI are being put to use at Stanford Health Care and how data is changing the primary care office throughout healthcare.
As Mahoney will make clear, close collaboration between healthcare administration, researchers and medical education are essential pieces for an innovative and forward-thinking healthcare environment.
