12:45 pm - 1:45 pm Networking Lunch

1:45 pm - 2:25 pm Practitioner Roundtables

Earlier in the Exchange, we collected your insights and challenges in the data and analytic space using the Thoughtexchange social learning tool. During this follow-up session, you’ll have dedicated time to sit with your peers and develop an action plan to improve data and analytics operations.

2:30 pm - 3:00 pm Using Analytics to Transform the Patient Experience & Foster Innovative Care

Rich Jolly - Vice President, Analytics & Strategy, Avamere Health Services
As organizations become increasingly concerned with developing strategies to capitalize on the consumerization of healthcare, analytics has emerged as a powerful tool to better understand patient expectations as well as to determine which pain points are most intrinsically tied to overall patient satisfaction.

Gain insights into how:
•Incorporating patient scorecards to improve commercial excellence tracking
•Discrete data sets are being manipulated to create better context for compliance modeling 
•Deploying Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM’s) can lead to significantly improved outcomes under the value-based care model. 
•Fortifying strategic data governance frameworks has contributed to increased data sharing and use of HIE’s in genomic

3:00 pm - 3:45 pm Optimizing Data Warehousing Stacks to Aggregate Population Health Data
The move towards value-based care has found many healthcare organizations struggling to compile and structure vast quantities of data in order to provide context and actionable insights for population health initiatives. This session will explore some of the ways to identify the type of data warehousing that will most aligns with your business objectives and data governance framework. 

Come to this session to gain a better understanding of: 
•How ineffective, poorly-matched data warehousing can obscure data quality issues
•Identifying non-volatile and volatile data generated during care continuum and optimizing point of binding


3:00 pm - 3:45 pm The Imaging Analytics Revolution
Radiology is one of the first areas that has experienced dramatic transformation thanks to technologies like AI and advanced ML. This session will explore some of the ways this technology can be leveraged to improve efficiency, augment clinical workflows and enhance care delivery. 

Join this session to explore:
•Integrating imaging and clinical data to increase the effectiveness of clinical decisions at the point-of-care. 
•How to link data generated from imaging analytics to supply
•Techniques to ensure the veracity of insights generated by imaging analytics 

3:45 pm - 4:25 pm Energizing Data Scientists to Embrace Working in Healthcare

The healthcare profession is responsible for saving countless lives everyday and touches the lives of every single American in some form or the other. Yet, many CDAO’s are struggling to attract and retain talent compared to well-know, tech savvy brands. Participate in this panel to engage in an honest discussion centered on how some of your peers are improving their talent pipelines and communicating the value of joining the healthcare industry for data scientists.

4:25 pm - 5:15 pm Reducing Physician Burnout & Managing Clinical Workflows through Advanced Analytics & NLP

According to some estimates, the breadth of data captured in the healthcare increased has increased by 600% over the last five years. This explosion of data and increasing administrative pressures related to data empty and curation has led to a high level of physician burnout and negatively impacted their willingness to incorporate new technologies like advanced clinical decision support tools into workflows. This session will explore how embedding technologies such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and AI-assisted transcription can radically improve clinical workflows and allow physicians to focus on valuable face-to-face interactions with their patients.
