Overview of the conference:
Team SSI attended HIMMS Conference 2015. Analytics and patient engagement remain key focus of health care organizations. One larger provider was tackling analytics on a large scale, investing a high-performance data warehouse solution and getting a head start organizing data by leveraging a 3rd party healthcare data model.
Some organizations are struggling with data stored in multiple silos and looking for a way to start with basic reporting. Here we discussed a number of the business intelligence solutions that can address this need.
One last analytics theme was around population health initiatives. Here we shared how we are assisting customers in developing predictive analytics solutions to address challenges with re admissions.
1) Applying Analytics to Population Health Management by Dr. Kori Krueger and Kate Konitzer, from Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin.
2) Better Care with Big Data by Dr. John Mattison from Kaiser Permanente and others
