Big Data Analytics

A Patient-Centric System is the Future of Healthcare IT

Globally, the US ranks number one in healthcare spending; on a per capita basis, the US will spend twice as much as on healthcare than any other industrialized nation. In 2016, the healthcare bill was over $3 trillion, about 18 percent of GDP. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) ranks the US 37th in healthcare capability and outcomes. One of the solutions to alleviate this is the improved exchange and control of data with a patient-centric focus.

Although Meaningful Use and the advent of the EMR have endowed many healthcare organizations with significant data assets, few would claim that we have truly realized the promised digital dividend. One of the most desired future capabilities is analytics-driven personalized healthcare: using data to guide care on an individual-by-individual basis.  However, different hospital systems, different payer systems and different Electric Health Record (EHR) systems have led to inadequate data exchange resulting in poor reconciliation of services, increased costs and frustrated patients.

This year, the Healthcare IT Institute is honored to have Dr. Edmund Jackson, VP & Chief Data Scientist at HCA and Alistair Jacques, SVP & CIO at Fairview Health Services share their insights and expertise with their executive CIO peers. Dr. Edmund Jackson will be leading a discussion on the digital dividend. His discussion will bring to light that while there has been progress made to use data to guide care on a personalized basis, the watershed moment leading to mass adoption has not been reached, and he will challenge the CIOs in attendance to answer, “Why?” And “How much still has to be done?”

Complementing Dr. Jackson’s discussion will be a lively session led by Alistair Jacques. Alistair will foster innovative dialogue with attendees on a patient-centric approach to thrive in the digital age. His session will present the case for patient mobile device management and how it is beneficial for both patients and providers: patients can access their records and get immediate medical help via an app, and providers will have easy access to patient information through a single patient ID, and their resources will be utilized more efficiently.

In a constantly evolving environment in which consumerism and customization are the catalysts for change, CIOs need to cost-effectively navigate the protection of PHI, proactively avoid cyber attacks and meet the health needs and digital expectations of their patients.

Healthcare CIOs Take On Big Data Analytics

As the healthcare industry transforms in order to meet the challenges of shrinking reimbursement, shared risk and increasingly empowered patients, the ability to use analytics to transform data into actionable information to enable better business and clinical decisions will determine which organizations will survive and thrive. The concept of Big Data has moved well beyond the theoretical stage and is presently being leveraged by numerous organizations to change how healthcare is delivered.

Are you equipping your team with the right tools and information to tackle the ongoing and upcoming challenges in big data analytics?

On June 4th, 2017 Tina Esposito, VP, Information & Technology Innovation at Advocate Health Care, Dane Hudelson, Analytics Leader at Sanford Health, Danyal Ibrahim, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, and Ayad Shammout, Director, Data Platform & Business Intelligence at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will be engaging healthcare CIOs in an interactive and informative discussion at the 2017 Healthcare IT Institute on leveraging data to maximize positive outcomes. During their session they will challenge their CIO peers to answer questions such as:

  • How does your hospital define big data?
  • How has your balance of resources changed to enable big data for population health management?
  • How is success defined for your analytic initiatives?
  • What challenges would your hospital need to overcome to leverage big data and produce results?
  • What are some emerging themes that you think will impact big data efforts?

Reserve your seat to join the conversation and attend the conference. This year’s Healthcare IT Institute is taking place June 4th – 6th 2017 at Westin Hilton Head Resort & Spa, Hilton Head Island, SC.
