Health care data is famously bad—old, siloed, incomplete, inaccurate—and getting worse.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Although health care reform efforts are focused on improving interoperability for exchanging data, we should give equal priority to ensuring that the quality of data exchanged and used is light years ahead of what is currently offered. We should expect that high-quality data are available and actionable at the point of need—every time. The technology exists to transform data for payers, providers, partners and other stakeholders. Unleashing it will transform the effectiveness of care administration and reporting, population health management and value-based care program quality.
This session will discuss three prominent issues critical to moving quality and overall health care forward: 1.) what constitutes good clinical and other quality data; 2.) tangible benefits of having good quality data; and 3.) the path forward for payers, providers and partners to get the quality data they need to succeed. Participants will learn how to replace bad data with the right clinical data to accelerate gains in care, equity, affordability, consumer experience and provider experience.
