I would like to thank the folks at Lancet Software for hosting the 2011 Healthcare Business Intelligence Summit held in Minneapolis MN and for inviting me to speak at the event. The event was very well attended, with many healthcare BI stakeholder groups (including clinicians, executives, and analysts) represented.
There were many excellent speakers at the event, so it was unfortunate I couldn’t see them all – but click here to see the full list of speakers. I would, however, like to give a special shout-out to the speakers I did have the good fortune to see. Mark Hagwarth (Healthcare Informatics magazine) gave an excellent keynote speech that really kicked off the day. Scott Wanless (Resource Management Professionals) and Tom Ludwig (Forward Healthcare Solutions) presented on the five key critical success factors for BI to be successful in healthcare organizations. Laura Madsen (Lancet Software) and Lisa Gordon (Microstrategy) spoke about the current state of Healthcare BI and what we can expect in the future. Allana Cummings (Northeast Georgia Health System, Inc.) wrapped up the summit with excellent examples of how business intelligence can transform healthcare organizations, and what needs to be in place to make that positive change happen. I’ll be writing about some of these presentations in more detail in the near future.
My presentation at the summit was entitled “From the waiting room to the treatment room – clinical analytics in action”, and I’ll be posting a link to the presentation soon for those who wish to download it.
If you are a developer or user of healthcare business intelligence and analytics applications, I would strongly recommend you attend the event next year. It is truly an outstanding opportunity for learning, and networking. Congratulations to the entire Healthcare BI Summit team for hosting a great event!
