April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Brian Patterson, MD, MPH, Physician Informatics Director for Predictive Analytics, Frank Liao, PhD, Director of Data Science and Advanced Analytics, and Sabrina Adelaine, Applied Data Scientist, UW Health. Predictive analytics holds the promise of improving healthcare by harnessing data at the frontlines of healthcare delivery, but there can be challenges to building an impactful predictive analytics program and maturing data science capabilities within a health system. These challenges at UW Health were addressed by successfully employing strategies and approaches to mature the use of predictive analytics in clinical care and operations while building a foundation for continued development in data science, such as the role of governance, maturing capabilities, standard methodologies, and leveraging partnerships. In this presentation, Drs. Patterson and Liao and Sabrina share some key themes and strategies for success based on their experiences and the lessons learned thus far in their journey.
