The challenges of health care are never-ending. Efficient patient care, delivery of services, billing, inventory, cutting costs, advanced diagnostic capabilities, and professional staffing are but a few examples. Data has been the key to meeting needs and improving the industry for decades. Moving forward in bold and innovative ways will continue to improve healthcare in the country.
Keeping up with new developments is difficult while attempting to operate a practice or facility under current circumstances. There has been a shortage of qualified nursing professionals for close to a decade. Costs are rising. The population is aging. Serious conditions such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory issues are reaching epidemic proportions.
It is a struggle just to keep doors open and patient care meeting even minimum standards. There is little time for perusing medical journals, meeting with vendors and pharmaceutical representatives, and becoming familiar with breakthroughs. Making time for the numerous conferences and seminars offered is not always possible.
How About Three Days?
The Healthcare Analytics Summit is held annually. This year, the dates are September 11-13th, and the location is Salt Lake City. What makes this summit important is the agenda. The agenda, created around how data will drive health care, is designed to explore two data strategies.
The first strategy is geared toward developing a survival strategy for providers holding fast to traditional data systems. The second is creating strategies that will enable providers to implement innovative solutions in digital health care. Sessions will illustrate how breakthroughs in data improvements affect every aspect of the industry, from supply chains to bio-sensor technologies used to digitize patients.
Some topics among the thirty breakout sessions include where new data tools are originating, the speed at which artificial intelligence (AI) is making improvements in the field, and if value-based care is decreasing or increasing. Practical approaches to increasing technology, data collection, and analytical capabilities will be explored as well. The summit is completely education-focused without vendors to allow professionals to get the most out of their time and participation.
