2 - Criminal Justice Analytics and Insights for Healthcare
We all know that change can be difficult. Changing business practices, cultures, and philosophies can take years – and often countless efforts yield minimal results. Yet data, technology, and analytics have shown that we can change the way we do business in faster and more impactful ways. Although the tools of our modern world can change how we see problems and open up new solutions, we all struggle with how to change systems and culture when transforming outdated practices.
In this talk, Milgram will describe her work as Attorney General for the State of New Jersey and in private philanthropy, where she has sought to bring the best of the modern world – data, technology and analytics – to bear in an effort to transform the American criminal justice system. Milgram will also discuss parallels between the criminal justice and health care systems and the significant overlap between high utilizers of these systems.
Finally, Milgram will touch upon the three ways in which she believes data can and should operate in business and government today: first, through big data, which shows us trends and identifies high level points of engagement; second, through individual level data, which can improve how we identify and treat individual people; and, finally, through integrated data that allows us to understand the full picture of risks, needs, and opportunities for improvement.
