Learn how to launch an effective clinical and business intelligence initiative at HIMSS13
Clinical and business intelligence (C&BI) seems to be the latest holy grail of digitizing healthcare. Healthcare organizations have realized C&BI capabilities are critical to success, but many struggle with where and how to start.
On March 3, the inaugural HIMSS13 Clinical & Business Intelligence Symposium will help professionals develop a roadmap to launch and manage a C&BI initiative. Sessions will go through the planning, data review, analysis and reporting required.
“What excites me most about the symposium is the opportunity to assist healthcare providers, from large IDNs to individual practitioners, in thinking about how to apply data aggregated in their EHRs to solve problems: clinical, administrative and financial,” says Symposium Speaker Diane M. Carr, deputy executive director at North Bronx Healthcare Network. “Hopefully, the sessions will provide an actionable framework based on our panelists’ experience and analysis that will answer some questions that healthcare providers are working so hard to address.”
So what happens once you establish a C&BI initiative?
In a recent HIMSS Blog post, James Gaston, FHIMSS, talked about how Pioneer ACO Atrius Health is innovatively leveraging C&BI to improve its patient care and business. Specifically, he shared one example of how the organization is “herding cats” to track the complex referral patterns of their physicians – mitigating uncontrolled and rampant out-of-network physician referrals.
