The Data Standard

How is data improving clinical outcomes? with Patrick McGill
Patrick McGill, EVP, Chief Analytics Officer at Community Health Network sits down with TDS to explain how data is improving clinical outcomes.

Episode Summary

With more statistically rigorous analytic methods to further automate insight identification, data science and machine learning can help health systems align effective measures with specific improvement goals more accurately and faster than typical data analysis. Health systems can decrease the risk, cost, and time associated with outcomes improvement and accelerate the process by using data science to help determine which measures will help them meet their goals for their specific populations. As the industry continues to work toward outcomes improvement, leading organizations will rely on data science and machine learning to test hypotheses, identify opportunities faster and more accurately, and ensure that their improvement measures support their overall goals.
