Complex Care, Cutting-Edge Tools: Using Patient Similarity and Predictive Analytics for Better Health Outcomes

Available On-Demand

Date Held: March 25, 2014

Health and social care providers are under increasing pressure to provide better care and deliver better resultsóespecially for patients with coexisting and complex chronic conditions. High-risk, high-need individuals make up 20 percent of the total population, but they represent 80 percent of health and social care costs. In order to ensure sustainable care and create healthier communities, itís critical to identify and treat all patients quickly and effectively.

View this webinar on demand with IBM to see how innovative technologies make it possible to leverage massive amounts of data in order to drive insights that help deliver coordinated, patient-centered care. Get an in-depth look at the solutions that can improve patient experiences and increase the health of populations while reducing costs.

You will learn:

  • How patient similarity and predictive analytics can help providers identify patients most at risk for conditions or diseases and support the best possible course of treatment
  • Ways to leverage clinical, social and lifestyle data to improve decision-making and gain greater impact at the point of care
  • How to collect and share information, reduce errors, and ensure better collaboration using automated data collection and visualization tools

***There is a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.
