Analytics & CIO Affinity Group

Data-Driven Transformation

From CDS to PX and beyond, the Analytics & CIO Affinity Group regularly convenes 25 to 30 Chief Analytics Officers and other executives for Dialogue calls and in-person and virtual Summits. Discussions address myriad topics from identification of at-risk populations and clinical decision support for personalized medicine to Amazon-like patient engagement and new business models.

If you want to know what your peers are doing and thinking right now, join SI’s Analytics & CIO Affinity Group MS Teams site to facilitate ongoing, ad hoc, open discussion and collaboration among the Analytics peer group.

Data/Analytics Organization Chart Library

SI offers a unique space where members can share information on their particular approaches to structuring their Data/Analytics departments, with charts provided for internal use only. Contact us to learn how to obtain access and contribute to the library.


Dialogues – Invitation-only

These 1-hour, peer-led Zoom meetings are by invitation-only, with recaps distributed to affinity group members via MS Teams. To guest-lead/host a Dialogue on a topic of interest, contact Cynthia Schroers. Some hosts share background materials to support discussion; just ask for samples.
