As we attempt to improve outcomes and efficiency, healthcare organizations have turned to data more than ever before. Big data and analytics have emerged as a strategy to help solve the industry's toughest challenges. But without proper alignment between technology, provider workflows and organizational structure, investments in data and analytics alone will not achieve the desired outcomes.
In this talk, Dr. Steven J. Atlas, a primary care physician and a clinical researcher focused on population health management at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), will discuss how to bridge data analytics to the rest of the population health story to drive clinical outcomes. Specifically, he will discuss strategies on how to combine clinical workflow, data and technology to create effective interventions. To illustrate his points, Dr. Atlas will use specific examples derived from several clinical studies he and his colleagues have recently conducted at MGH.
