Beyond improving profits and cutting down on wasted overhead, data in healthcare is being used to predict epidemics, cure disease, improve quality of life and avoid preventable deaths. With the world’s population increasing and everyone living longer, models of treatment delivery are rapidly changing, and many of the decisions behind those changes are being driven by data. The drive now is to understand as much about a patient as possible, as early in their life as possible – hopefully picking up warning signs of serious illness at an early enough stage that treatment is far more simple (and less expensive) than if it had not been spotted until later.
So the healthcare data ecosystem, how we manage it and put it to productive use, is more important than ever. This half-day conference workshop introduces attendees to domains of data management that are fundamental to the health and productive use of healthcare data. We will explore trends, emerging and best practices, and encourage attendees to share their experiences in this interactive workshop format.
