Clinical Analytics: Meeting the Challenge of Reform
June 15, 2011, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Chris Vanuga, Principal, Healthcare BI and DS Practice, and Randy Gordon, MD, Director, Deloitte Consulting, LLP. One of the leading assumptions of health care reform is that providing better information to providers will enable both clinical outcome improvement and reduce costs. However, just purchasing and implementing clinical information systems does not necessarily result in improved outcomes and efficiency. Business analytics is a necessary component to turn data into information that administrators and clinicians can use to manage processes and outcomes. Dr. Gordon and Dean discuss the opportunity to harness the power of clinical information systems through analytics to better manage care and processes. Case studies and examples are provided to illustrate how some health systems have implemented and utilized clinical analytics to improve their outcomes.
