There exists a wealth of data in health systems today, and all are working toward mining this data into a meaningful, evidence-based decision making tool. There is an abundance of new ways to utilize and categorize data, and many health systems are looking to implement these strategies.
In this session, learn how to leverage data categorization and its outputs to facilitate value analysis discussions, engage both supply chain leaders and clinicians, and benchmark at the commodity characteristic level. Also identify strategies to implement, trend, and sustain actualized expense reductions by looking at the basics of Cost, Quality and Outcome (CQO) initiatives.
Then discover how to utilize real-time data, to improve patient care and streamline your supply chain. Identify key strategies for implementing analytics in a way that fits your health system and how to transfer this real-time data into actions and outcomes.
1. Describe Data Categorization including its use in CQO initiatives.
2. Analyze how health systems are using data to improve patient care.
3. Identify strategies to implement analytics.
