Making Healthcare Data Actionable: Solutions for Converting Data into Information for More Effective Reporting, Decision Making and Strategic Planning


Thursday, January 14, 2016 – 1 to 2 p.m. ET


We live in a digital universe, and the volume of data is growing exponentially. That’s especially true in healthcare, where the need for information is being driven by changes in regulatory and compliance reporting requirements, demand for quality and performance measures, and a focus on value-based purchasing. But unless all of this healthcare data can be converted into the type of information that supports decision making and strategic planning, it’s just taking up space.


During this webinar, HMA data specialist Lisa Maiuro, PhD, will outline some practical approaches healthcare organizations can take to convert data into information, including an understanding of how to share data across organizational and functional teams, how to organize data to drive business decisions, and how to present and use data without specialized analytic expertise.
