Clinical & Business Intelligence Community

Let your voice be heard. Share your knowledge and ideas on how can HIMSS support your C&BI journey.

Clinical and business intelligence (C&BI) is the aggregation, analysis, and use of clinical, financial, operational, and non-traditional data captured inside and out of the healthcare setting to directly inform decision-making. Leveraging the power of C&BI will improve our nation’s entire healthcare system as well as the medical and economic wellness of patients.

HIMSS’ C&BI Community will help you leverage the power of C&BI to positively impact patient care delivery, health outcomes, and business operations through:

  • Sharing practical guidance and unbiased information on how to harness these healthcare data
  • Facilitating peer-to-peer networking, problem solving, solution sharing, and education
  • Engaging with peers and fellow industry leaders

Our virtual learning sessions feature topics such as:

  • Data aggregation and access through EDW, HIE, and cloud solutions
  • Data management, validation, quality, and integration
  • Descriptive, retrospective, predictive, and prescriptive analytics
  • Governance – data and program
  • Reporting, dashboards, and visualization techniques
  • Resource management
  • Population health management, including attribution and risk stratification
  • Precision medicine
  • Predictive modeling
  • Staffing and skills development

Are we measuring the right KPIs and finding the right patients to manage? – A novel approach to improving both
November 30, 2017 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET


  • Herb Fillmore, MSW, DrPH doctoral candidate | 3M HIS


While American health policy pursues value-based purchasing, the development of performance indicators for this purpose lags behind. Improvements will hinge in part on information reflecting a population’s needs and the effectiveness of health care organizations at meeting those needs. The current crop of disease-specific process measures may not be the pay-for-performance we really need to change systems and create lasting impacts on population health.

This presentation first discusses a composite score of primary care metrics creating the “Value Index score,” which emphasizes the measurement of outcomes across a population and promotes lasting systemic change.

Second, it discusses a new approach to identifying cohorts who can be helped by care management but may not be identified through typical methods. These patients are flying “under the radar” but have complex needs and interactions with systems of care, and your success in identifying and caring for these individuals is mandatory!

The C&BI for Population Health Task Force creates resources and tools that employ practical guidance and unbiased information to help healthcare organizations (providers, hospitals, integrated delivery networks, health plans and other stakeholders) use C&BI to harness, use and analyze data captured in the healthcare setting to execute population health management initiatives and improve care and health outcomes.
