Systematizing Chronic Care
Data ingestion in medicine is typically a series of incompletely linked episodes. Systematizing all care transactions at an individual patient level offers the potential to create the data streams necessary to optimize chronic disease management, stratify individual risk in novel ways and reimagine clinical workflows.
The value of data in healthcare is undeniable and realized when raw information is successfully converted into knowledge that changes clinical practice. To drive value improvements and ensure that the right patient receives the right care requires the right data in combination with the right data analytics. This session will cover various aspects and challenges of data science in hospitals and health systems that drive healthcare with better outcomes.
