The use of data analytics in healthcare settings continues to grow rapidly, spurred by the potential for improved performance, lowered costs and better client care. Understanding the best ways to incorporate data analytics into your healthcare practice or clinical setting can be challenging, however. At the Healthcare Analytics Conference 2018, industry-leading digital health pioneers and healthcare executives will guide attendees toward a clearer vision of how data analytics can help improve outcomes for their organizations. Those healthcare professionals not yet committed to going to the conference should consider the following three best reasons to attend the Healthcare Analytics Conference 2017.
Keynote speakers with industry-leading experience
Remaining at the forefront of the healthcare industry and continuing to improve the outcomes for your organization requires that you stay up-to-date with the latest innovations and advancements in healthcare technology and data analytics. For this reason, the Healthcare Analytics Conference 2017’s organizers have assembled a group of visionary keynote speakers with expertise in a diverse range of critical topics. Scheduled speakers include healthcare organization directors, public health school deans and C-level executives in prominent healthcare organizations, while planned speeches will touch upon best practices for health systems and the future of the digitization of medicine.
Comprehensive breakout sessions
This year, the conference organizers have put together a diverse and wide-ranging variety of technical, educational and case study-based breakout sessions designed to help attendees gain greater understanding regarding a myriad of data-driven healthcare topics. These sessions will touch upon broad issues in the field and provide attendees with the foundation needed to begin or improve their use of data analytics in their own organizations.
For example, one of the breakout sessions will deal with machine learning in healthcare. Major research companies such as IBM are undertaking huge initiatives to apply machine learning principles to healthcare, with the potential to dramatically change diagnostics and forge new modes of personalized medicine. Staying abreast of these exciting health technology developments can keep clinicians and healthcare professionals at the forefront of the industry.
Those healthcare professionals currently experiencing challenges incorporating data analytics into their own practices can receive real-life, practical guidance from any of the more than 20 scheduled case study sessions. With a focus on how outcomes can be improved, these sessions will discuss a range of topics, from how bundled pricing can benefit hospitals and patients alike to how analytics can be used to bolster revenue cycle management.
Real-time demonstration of the power of analytics
Often, the best way to understand a new technological tool is to see it in action. That’s why the conference organizers will be utilizing analytics to track and report on all aspects of the three-day conference. Attendees will be able to engage and participate hands-on with the conference’s event application through real-time polling, networking, question and answer sessions and more. The information gleaned from the event application will be used to guide the conference organizers and enhance attendees’ experience in real time. For those healthcare professionals who remain on the fence about the power of analytics, this exercise will serve as a symbolic representation of how data can shape healthcare outcomes.
