The volume of patient data is growing exponentially—as are the innovative ways it can be leveraged to improve clinical and non-clinical outcomes. Those ideas will be the focus of a May 11th panel discussion at the Health IT Summit in Chicago that includes Wolters Kluwer’s own Stephen Claypool, MD, medical director of Clinical Software Solutions.

During “Forward-Thinking Examples of Analytics in a Modern Healthcare Setting,” which begins at 11:15 a.m. CDT, Dr. Claypool will discuss his experiences in designing, developing and engineering clinical decision support software, including his team’s successes and the challenges the industry faces going forward. He will be joined by Matthew Hartzman, former CIO at the College of American Pathologists; Preston M. Simmons, FACHE, interim CEO of Providence Health & Services, Western Washington; and Alex Veletsos, CIO at Ascension Health and vice president and CIO at Together Health Network.

Dr. Claypool and his fellow panelists will share:

  • How to make better use of data and analytics to lower cost, improve quality, assess risk, and better manage patient populations;
  • Real-world success stories being applied in the field of analytics and the infrastructure blueprints that are empowering healthcare organizations;
  • How to develop a strategy for coordinating care using patient data shared across acute and ambulatory settings;
  • Information on management tools that help deliver positive ROI.

The Chicago Health IT Summit is part of a series of events hosted by Healthcare Informatics promoting improvements in the quality, safety and efficiency made possible by health IT.
