New healthcare technologies will dramatically improve the effectiveness and efficiency of hospitals but knowing what is relevant and useful can be a challenge. Metrixcare Clinical Director Dr Chris Farmer will be delivering a presentation titled ‘Bringing Predictive & Smart Analytics into the Business of Healthcare’ at the Healthcare of the Future conference to be held in Sydney 15-16 June 2016.
Dr Farmer’s presentation will share a story about a journey from anxiety to excellence:
- Current management challenges healthcare providers face
- Using trust and transparency to drive improvement
- Visual analytics approaches to understand and predict performance
- Creating a culture of excellence
Dr Farmer says that “Analytics is a foundation of learning that can help us predict the future by learning from our past. It is a journey that evolves over time as we unlock greater value from our existing data to see the variation that is essential for improvement. However, solutions are not all technical but rather lie at the socio-technical intersection of people and technologies.”
