The Data Operating System: A Vision of How to Finally Unlock Data to Improve Healthcare

When it comes to the future of analytics strategy, data will be at the center, not the EMR. In fact, when it comes to big programs (i.e. population health, ACOs), and improving the bottom line, the EMR has only about eight percent of the necessary data. In this webinar, Imran will explain how having a data operating system solves many data issues healthcare organizations are now facing.

Imran will describe the technical approach behind a data operating system, and will also bring it to life by discussing several use case scenarios which today are frustrating, but tomorrow can be solved using the innovative data operating system concept.

Wednesday, November 15
1:00-2:00 PM EST

Here are several of the user scenarios that Imran will discuss:

    1. Hospital IT has to manage a system of applications held together by duct tape that all install differently and work differently. Each of these applications is a silo that has to be fed data in a regular manner.
    2. Hospital CEOs have a bunch of hospital systems they’ve acquired but can’t get them to talk to each other. They are increasingly subject to risk-based contracts without the ability to understand the risk and how to manage it.
    3. Doctors are over-measured but under-informed. They face an ever-changing set of re-imbursement rules that are different for each payer. They are over-worked and barely get to spend time with their family because they are increasingly spending more time just entering data into the EMR.
    4. Patients have to make confusing care decisions without a good framework to do so. They are confronted with bills that are impossible to understand and find themselves paying more out-of-pocket. And, they are faced with a multitude of apps that requires them to enter their medical history before getting any value.

We hope you can join us.
