During this webinar, panelists will discuss:

  • How big data is getting bigger and the need to access more processing power and storage to harness this information.
  • How to effectively link multiple sources of data (e.g., EMR, charge mater, claims mortality, etc.) to generate actionable information (e.g., dashboards, reports) to best treat and coordinate care.
  • Ways to build and optimize relational database management systems to accommodate larger and more complex IT system requirements.
  • Several individual therapy areas, including acute coronary syndrome, where data challenges and opportunities are being assessed to improve outcomes.
  • Best practices to implement business intelligence and data warehouse tools that promote population health programs.

The summer webinar series will dive into key aspects of the emerging population health paradigm, addressing big data and IT integration issues, patient engagement strategies, and population health strategies for employer-based coverage. Sessions will also be held in July and August.

“This webinar series attempts to find some common ground for health care professionals and other health care stakeholders by identifying best practices and creating a call to action for collaboration and outcomes improvement nationwide,” says Mark Lutes, session moderator and chair of Epstein Becker Green’s Board of Directors. “From the Affordable Care Act and data analytics to advancement in health IT systems, a number of factors are having a significant impact on the health care delivery system.”
