New York, NY (PRWEB) June 10, 2015 -- Hundreds of healthcare professionals will convene in New York on June 18-19 for the Big Data & Healthcare Analytics Forum. Produced by HIMSS , the Big Data & Healthcare Analytics Forum will focus on how leading healthcare organizations are using data to produce real-time insights that reduce readmissions, cut hospital-contracted conditions, identify and eliminate waste, and improve clinician workflow.
"As the healthcare sector continues to transform, the ability to use analytics to turn data into actionable information will play a big role in who survives this transformation," said John Whelan, Executive Vice President of HIMMS Media. "The Big Data & Healthcare Analytics Forum will provide our community of providers and payers with the knowledge and analytics tools needed to make an immediate impact on both patient care and financial performance."
Topics to be covered at the forum include, population health management, data driven precision medicine, point of care data summarization, high value referral networks, patient volume forecasting, improving physician engagement and the role of the chief data officer presented by leading healthcare organizations such as Advocate Health Care, Carolinas Healthcare System, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Veterans Affairs, Geisinger Health System, Harvard Medical School, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Penn Medicine and Seattle Children’s, among others.
To demonstrate their support of the Forum and the value it provides to attendees, several health IT thought leaders have signed on as sponsors of the event, including:
• SAP / Intel - SAP solutions help healthcare organizations run better by enabling a personalized healthcare experience through integrated records and collaborative medical analytical capabilities.
