    From Big Data to Smarter Care: What, Why & How

    Healthcare is undergoing a massive transformation. That’s no secret. Reimbursement is shrinking, providers are being asked to shoulder more risk, and patients are more involved in their care than ever. The ability to use analytics to transform data into actionable information – smarter business and clinical decisions – will play a big role in who survives this transformation. That’s not hype – it’s reality.

    Yet with so many analytics tools and models, how do you cultivate a winning strategy – one that maximizes your data’s value and makes a real impact on healthcare and costs?

    The Big Data & Healthcare Analytics Forum brings together thought leaders from across the nation to answer these questions and more. Join us for two highly targeted days of healthcare-focused insights, success stories and lessons learned, and discover how to get ahead of the curve in the transition to value-based care.
