Given the extensive investments made in health technologies and the high hopes for their effectiveness for health provider productivity and patient safety, best practices in health technology implementation are still topical. Learn about best practices in HIT implementation from a systematic review of the literature with high quality statistical analysis of the findings.

Live at noon, Online

February 28 & March 7, 2017 | 12:00-1:30 PM ET

Canadian healthcare organizations often have sufficient health data on hand to make progress on meaningful, actionable steps with analytics NOW, and do not need to wait for a future when there may be an idealized, elaborate, structured health data model. The best place to start is where they are. The successful journey to actionable analytics is a cyclical passage that should begin not with the data, but rather with the question, outcome or business problem. This online session, will examine the value proposition for an array of stakeholders for better use of electronic health data that respects privacy and confidentiality.

Using Data Analytics Strategically to Improve Healthcare

March 2 - 9, 2017
Live at Noon, Online

March 2 & 9, 2017 | 12:00-1:30 PM ET  

Live, Interactive, Online

The promise of data analytics is to provide the evidence and insight necessary to completely revolutionize the delivery of healthcare. Yet so often our “analytics” consists of an oddball collection of disconnected dashboards, reports, miscellaneous spreadsheets. Healthcare leaders throughout an organization need actionable insight to remediate performance issues, implement innovative processes, and manage within financial realities. This is only possible when decision-makers (ranging from executives to front-line quality improvement professionals) are able to access the information they need, when they need it, in a format that is useful and that guides them to the proper actions to take.
