Data, Analytics and Actionable Intelligence

Discover the best data practices to optimize utilization, reduce administrative costs, support better outcomes, and enhance the patient experience. You’ll learn how leaders are combining clinical, financial, and outcomes data to help prevent re-admissions and lower costs, how AI is transforming health care, and how to address disparate data sources.
