The Healthcare industry has never been under more pressure to change than it is today. Payers, providers, pharmacy benefit managers and healthcare solution providers are being forced to comply with new regulations, integrate waves of competitive mergers and acquisitions, and adapt to the needs of an aging population. Many are struggling to keep up.

Successful healthcare organizations have been meeting these challenges by 1) driving targeted investments and constant cost control, 2) using advances in technology and digital operating models and 3) focusing on improved and innovative patient engagement. Recent events like the coronavirus pandemic and public demand for more effective outcomes are mandating the hyper-acceleration of these activities to better meet care lifecycle requirements and build patient-centric business models. 

Digital transformation is the key to surviving this period of immense change. Whether you're starting out on your transformation journey, looking to refine existing strategies, or searching for what challenges to address next, this event will steer you in the right direction.

INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT PRESENTATION: From Data to Decision -  The Value of Clinical Content Expertise in Healthcare Data Science

The healthcare industry’s digital infrastructure is at a disruptive inflection point as two major market forces converge:  1) COVID has highlighted that legacy infrastructure is not nimble enough to quickly address changing needs; and 2) the drive by government and commercial players to transition to interoperability and FHIR standards on an expedited basis. A common theme is arising as this new digital infrastructure is being built: Deep clinical expertise and knowledge needs to be built into these new ecosystems up front, rather than as an afterthought. In this session, hear from a leader in clinical content data science and analytics on this new landscape. 

Topics include:

  • Value based care and incorporating timely, relevant, and actionable measures analytics into healthcare workflows 
  • Identification and prediction of gaps in care with the ability to intervene in care delivery
  • The critical nature of including clinical content expertise in the development of AI/ML applications that solve real-world problems
  • The importance of bringing “science” back into data science to properly remove bias and achieve better results
  • Bridging the divide between the data, technology, and decision makers
