    Data Governance in Healthcare

    Breakfast will be Provided by Logan Data for all Members Attending in Person! 

    Data governance in healthcare, also called information governance, is defined as an organization-wide framework for managing health information throughout its lifecycle. 

    In this Accountable Care Series presentation, Logan Data will discuss how a practical approach to data governance can generate meaningful results in the short and long-term and what tools and techniques healthcare organizations can use to achieve these results. 

    The presentation will answer the following questions:

    • What is data governance?
    • Why is it important in healthcare?
    • What are the risks to a healthcare organization without data governance?
    • What is a practical approach to data governance?
    • What can be achieved in 30 to 90 days?
    • What are useful tools and techniques?

    Voice Assistance

    Commercial voice-activated intelligent personal assistants from Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft, among others, are growing in popularity. A report from NPR and Edison Research states that 16% of the U.S. population—39 million Americans—currently owns a smart speaker that relies on a voice-activated personal assistant. In another report, Juniper Research estimates that smart speakers will be installed in 55% of U.S. households by 2022—equaling 70 million households. As consumers become more accustomed to asking such devices for information, healthcare organizations will naturally become integrated into that behavior, and some already have. 

    During this discussion, participants can expect to learn:

    • how and where voice is being integrated with healthcare applications to increase patient engagement and improve outcomes
    • what use cases are best suited to voice and what benefits does this technology provide
    • what are the challenges in implementing voice in healthcare
    • what are the design, development and HIPAA compliance tips and tricks associated with voice interface-based solutions

    Presenter: David Box, Director of Business Development, Macadamian

    Data Orchestration and Governance

    Image result for information builders

    A strong data strategy for payers and providers capitalizes on current technologies to create a health data curation and enrichment hub, in short, a “Data Orchestration Platform.” Aligning resources across all departments to this strategy can enable any provider or health plan to become data-driven while generating an ROI that prepares for a future investment in AI and machine learning.  

    Data Orchestration requires connecting numerous internal/external data sources then centrally profiling, enriching and cleansing these data with advanced match, merge and mastering across important domains such as patient, provider attribution, workforce and location. 

    Additionally, in healthcare it is important to effectively and centrally manage the 1.2 million codes in all of the clinical terminologies and reference data sets. 

    Lastly, these data must be democratized by providing access to definitions and data lineage through governance and also publishing up to date, analyst-friendly self-service data marts and metrics cohorts. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • Comprehend high-level illustrations of various data complexities specific to the healthcare industry including two actual use case examples of data challenges in acute care.
    • Recognize the significance of treating data as an asset to create your Data Orchestration Hub to enable the effective use of Machine Learning, AI, NLP, and IoT as a part of organizational analytics.
    • Understand key components of defining analytics ROI and leveraging a Data Orchestration Hub for governance.
