Hospitals and health systems continue to strive towards harnessing big data to drive system-wide cost management and quality improvement efforts. Through predictive analytics, hospitals can use technology and statistical methods to cull through historic and real-time data to forecast trends and change behaviors, ultimately improving outcomes and patient experience, as well as the bottom line. In the era of value-based care, it’s imperative for organizations to have a solid management strategy and organizational framework for making digital assets work for administration and frontline clinicians. Health Forum convened a panel of hospital executives and industry experts July 18 in San Diego to discuss the use of predictive analytics to enhance clinical quality.
