Join us for a lively discussion with industry leaders in the value-based care movement focusing on how they are reacting to the impacts of COVID-19 on the shift from volume to value. Our panelists will discuss what’s “next” in the several months ahead and beyond; including how they are responding to the tremendous clinical, operational, and financial changes caused by the pandemic.

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 seven-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.

Panel Discussion

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have been buzzwords in healthcare for several years, but how real are they? Are healthcare organizations adopting AI and machine learning? How are they using each technology and what outcomes are they seeing?

This panel will serve as an AI and machine learning primer with insights on needed capabilities, common challenges, and best-practice advice; and early findings about what outcomes healthcare organizations are achieving with the buzziest of “new” technologies available to them.

Industry Partner SpotlightHave you wanted to create consistent patient and plan member consumer experiences? Or provide opportunities to lower the cost of care? A digital health strategy is will answer your needs. At the heart of a digital health strategy is data trusted, secure data that can be accessed by everyone in the organization. To reach this level of maturity, organizations are starting to leverage governance to foster and deliver trusted data to their line of business data consumers.

Industry Partner Spotlight

 

Data governance is one of healthcare’s top strategic initiatives. Reliable, trustworthy data is an essential ingredient driving digital transformation, analytic self-service and artificial intelligence innovations, among many other initiatives. However, data governance is not a new concept and many healthcare organizations have tried and abandoned prior data governance efforts – sometimes more than once. The good news is data governance has evolved in some dramatic ways that make new programs far more successful. Knowing how to deploy the right programs, processes, and supporting solutions is the key to delivering measurable value from your data governance efforts. 

Adding to this complexity, electronic health record applications such as Epic often include some basic data governance capabilities embedded within the application. To avoid “silos of data governance” that can potentially be in conflict or uncoordinated on your path to holistic enterprise data governance, you need a plan and architecture to ensure you avoid duplication of capabilities and any other roadblocks to adoption and scalability. 

It’s time to empower your organization to manage data as a mission-critical asset and to ensure your EHR is a full participant in your data governance strategy rather than its own island.  During this session: 

  • Understand the business and clinical drivers for enterprise data governance initiatives
  • Gain an introduction to the capabilities required of an enterprise data governance program
  • Appreciate how data governance programs should be structured for success
  • Recognize common integration patterns for how an EHR application should participate in an enterprise data governance program
