Panel Discussion

 

Understanding an individual’s SDOH can help uncover social and behavioral factors that impact their health. This discussion will address how SDOH data is being distilled to create actionable information and the impact of SDOH for improving overall health, and also for reducing health disparities that are often rooted in social and economic disadvantages.

Industry Partner Spotlight


It is imperative today for healthcare organizations to derive value from their data and make more meaningful decisions that will move the needle on costs, efficiency, and most importantly, patient outcomes. However, many hospitals and health systems are ill-equipped to do so and are not optimally using their investments in analytics and visualization, as the data they are supposed to use to make decisions is untrustworthy.

In this presentation, Dimensional Insight, the six-time Best in KLAS winner in healthcare business intelligence and analytics, will talk about why a foundation built on data trust is critical for healthcare organizations that want to make more data-driven decisions. In addition, Dimensional Insight customer EvergreenHealth, based in suburban Seattle, will discuss the success it has seen in areas such as opioid usage through a more data-driven approach.

Hyper-convergence is a oft-used buzzword now within health IT circles, especially as the advent of new technologies around flexible infrastructure continue to disrupt the marketplace. However, hyper-converged computing represents a unique area of opportunity for healthcare IT teams, especially in the face of demands from leadership for greater flexibility, and lower time-to-market for new built or merged facilities or locations. So what exactly is hyper-convergence and how does it fit into the IT roadmap?
