Healthcare Data-as-a-Service for Big Data Challenges
Virginia McFerran, CIO, UCLA Health System, and Jason Oliveira, Managing Director, Health System Consulting, Recombinant, will present "Healthcare Data-as-a-Service for our Big Data Challenges" on Wednesday, October 17 from 11:15 a.m. - 12 p.m. The session will recount the journey of UCLA Health System and its academic partners in strategizing, designing and establishing its xDR data-as-a-service architecture, including best practices and lessons learned.
"Emerging data sources such as EHRs, HIEs, patient portals, and the increasing availability of genomics and proteomics information are pushing health systems into the reality of having to manage massive amounts of data. As more health systems pursue secondary uses of data many quickly realize that they lack an enterprise data management strategy to efficiently exploit their big data assets," said Oliveira. "Virginia and I will help attendees gain a deeper understanding of what managing 'big data' means in terms of new information technology requirements, and what emerging approaches are being taken by the industry by focusing on the experience of our client, UCLA Health System."
Defining and Meeting the Core Data Requirements of ACOs
David Wennberg MD, MPH, Chief Executive Officer, NNEACC, and Mark Golberg, Managing Director, Healthcare Provider ACO, Recombinant will present "Defining and Meeting the Core Data Requirements of ACOs" on Thursday, October 18 from 11:15 a.m. - 12 p.m.
"ACOs cannot deliver on the promise of improving healthcare delivery and patient outcomes and reducing cost without the ability to identify, prioritize, access, and integrate data from internal and external clinical, claims, financial and other critical systems," said Golberg. "The scope, reliability and timeliness of data, in turn, impact downstream applications including knowledge management, decision support, business intelligence, and advanced analytics systems. Dr. Wennberg and I will discuss key issues of ACO data and information management and practical trade-offs often required in ACO network development based on our experience with NNEACC."
"The CHIME Fall CIO Forums combine the best speakers and healthcare IT educators in the nation with unparalleled opportunities for CIOs and healthcare IT executives to network with their peers and collectively share solutions, solve problems and address challenges," said Peter Emerson, Chief Executive Officer, Recombinant. "We are pleased to join with our clients the Northern New England Accountable Care Collaborative and UCLA Health System to share our pragmatic experience and expertise at the 20th CIO Fall Forum."
