Here are some highlights from presentations at Health Data Management’s Healthcare Analytics Symposium held in Chicago:

“We were able to uncover unusual workarounds,” Duke Medicine’s Monica Horvath on how analytics revealed that physicians were avoiding using a newly deployed EHR.

“It is great to the see the slideware, but reality has to hit. The application looks great in a demo, but it is not going to happen in a meaningful time period,” Dignity Health’s Dennis Sweeney on the importance of vetting vendor claims before making promises to clinicians clamoring for better technology.

“Everyone can see how everyone else looks and see that everyone is held to same benchmarks. It is hard to make excuses and there is nowhere to hide,” University of Utah’s Charlton Park on the value of reporting transparency.

“All the benefits flow to pointy-headed researchers and all the burden to hospitals and doctors,” New Health Analytics’ Lou Rossiter on ICD-10.

“You need to focus on actionable opportunities. You can’t cure hunger overnight,” Mayo’s Alan Krumholz on the importance of focusing on discrete quality improvement efforts.
