Health Care Analytics Summit 2017

Health care is no different from other services and businesses in that it relies on rapid access to accurate data in order to ensure the best possible results for patients, clients or customers. Thus the reasoning behind the Health Care Analytics Summit 2017 by Health Catalyst. There is so much difference between health care data and that of other industries, and a greater need to be able to work with the data, to find what in depth information to transform the health care industry and ultimately to better the care that every patient receives.

So it’s fortunate that modern digital technology allows for the easy collection and monitoring of vital information such as blood pressure, blood sugar, body mass index {BMI} and activity levels.

And health care analytics is becoming an increasingly important field. It’s a rapidly growing industry which is expected to be worth some $18.7 billion dollars by 2020, and which is being developed by both major health care providers and software companies with the aim of optimizing patient and customer results while at the same time minimizing costs.    

It involves the collection and analysis of a wide variety of data, involving –

  • insurance claims and costs
  • new prescription medications and treatments, including research and development costs
  • patient outcomes and behaviors
  • use of over the counter medications
  • financial and supply issues
  • the availability and cost of health care professionals

Why digitalization is vital for health care professionals

Above all, the aim of everyone involved in the health care profession is always to ensure the best possible outcome for patients, and an immediate access to medical records can only help physicians and other professionals to identify the best possible treatment program.

But for best results, it’s essential that practitioners can also get access to all the relevant details of the patient’s circumstances, which may include not just pre-existing medical conditions but also employment, financial, relationship and perhaps mental health issues.

The increasing prevalence of higher deductible health care plans (HDHPs) has made patients much more aware of the cost of their care and has therefore increased competition between care providers. But immediate access to potential cost data will allow health care professionals to advise individuals as to their most appropriate course of treatment.

Comprehensive epidemiological data, combined with the results of clinical trials, genomics, and health care user surveys can only help to provide better and more focused care for the individual health care consumer.

This data will help to more rapidly stem the outbreaks of disease, to bring new drugs into use more quickly, and to help individual patients with a personalized program of care based on their specific DNA profile.    

health care Analytics Summit 2017

The primary aim of this year’s health care Analytics Summit is to provide a detailed analysis of the ways in which digital strategies can assist with the timely delivery of critical clinical information and ensure the best possible results for both patients and care providers.

Expert speakers at the summit will explain the ways in which digital data is rapidly changing the face of health care, and will also refer to the experience of other industries which are already successfully using these new

If you attend the summit, you will have the chance to choose from among 30 dedicated case studies and technical sessions, and of course, you will get to network with many fellow professionals in this field
