Analytics in Healthcare – A Dose of Reality

Browse headline articles of the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times or business magazines and you will find stories of dynamic changes and challenges facing the healthcare industry. Patient experience, affordability, quality and safety of care, provider burnout, the technology revolution, and skyrocketing administrative costs are all components integral to the transformation of the healthcare system. Leveraging applied analytics to enable transformation is a topic of significant interest across healthcare and related industries. The availability of data, sophisticated models and dashboards alone will not result in high-quality, cost-effective and consumer-focused health care. It is critical that integrated, agile, humanistic, and sustainable analytics implementations be enabled in partnership with consumers and key organizational stakeholders. This session includes sharing implementation experiences, lessons learned and key success factors in the realm of applied analytics to address the formidable challenges of health care today and tomorrow.
