Providers are orientating their care around population health management, but as the industry takes a crash course in how to think in populations, a glaring deficiency is understanding geographywhere their patients are, where health risks cluster and how to provide the facilities and related services those sub-populations need.
Join us at 2 pm Eastern on Thursday, Oct. 17, to get an overview of the potential and practical applications for geographic information systems and spatial analytics from Bill Davenhall, a GIS innovator and author, and analytics experts from Duke University Health System.
Duke has put together a multi-disciplinary effort to use geospatial dataincluding publicly available data sets--to understand the causal connections among the many factors that influence health outcomes, and tailor their health service to address patient needs. Monica Horvath, Team Lead, Health Intelligence, and Sohayla Pruitt, a senior geospatial scientist at the health system, will join Bill to discuss the data and analytics behind Dukes population health initiative.
During the live event, the audience will learn:
- How where you live effects your health
- What data yields actionable insights into patient behavior
- How to combine different data elements into a cohesive population health narrative
- How analysts ensure reports can be understood by business and clinical owners
