I am pleased to announce that I will be conducting a half-day analytics strategy workshop at this year’s Healthcare Business Intelligence Summit on September 19, 2013 in Minneapolis, MN. The workshop description from the summit website is below:
Analytics hold great promise to transform health care. To achieve increasingly aggressive quality and performance goals driven by financial, legislative, and patient safety requirements, health care leaders must gain a deeper insight into the performance of an organization through the use of analytics. But analytics is more than simply applying various analytical tools, techniques, and technology to ever-growing volumes of health care data. Unfortunately, even with more data, more indicators, more reporting, and more dashboards, attaining health care improvement goals are not automatic.
This workshop will provide healthcare decision-makers, analysts, and improvement specialists with a strategy development and execution framework that will immediately improve analytics effectiveness and return-on-investment within your health care organization. This workshop will provide the tools and skills necessary to develop analytics strategies that fits the quality and performance improvement needs of your health care organization.
Specifically, you will learn to:
- Identify the critical inputs, key components, and other considerations necessary for a comprehensive analytics strategy
- Ensure the proper data, skills, technology, and management approaches are in place to achieve the goals of the organization
- Leverage existing strengths, improve on current weaknesses, address gaps, and plan for future analytics requirements
- Develop an evaluation plan to measure the success and impact of your strategy, and perform any necessary mid-course corrections
- Maintain focus on and successfully execute the analytics strategy to achieve maximum return of investment on analytics (in spite of ongoing distractions) and achieve the desired business and clinical outcomes.
Even if you’re not interested in this workshop, I would strongly encourage you to consider attending this year’s event. Originally founded by Laura Madsen, author of Healthcare Business Intelligence, this year’s speaker line up consists of Dr Kent Bottles, Neil Raden, and other outstanding presenters.
I hope to see you at the Healthcare BI Summit in September!
