The Transformative Role of Data and Analytics in a Post-COVID Era
Respond, Recover, Reimagine… Health Catalyst is doing the same in the world of the new normal. For all of its heartbreaking tragedies, COVID-19 is also driving changes that will benefit the world and humanity. The future of healthcare is suddenly here, with its focus on data sharing, technological pushes forward, and virtual work wherever possible. Social distancing aside, our ability to interact with one another through virtual video settings avoids the constraints and environmental impact of physical travel, along with time efficiencies and financial savings. We are excited to embrace the adventure and challenge of these changes by reimagining the Healthcare Analytics Summit (HAS) 2020 as a virtual format that will be unlike any online conference you’ve attended before. HAS 20 Virtual will feature speakers who’ve battled COVID-19 in the trenches as well as other speakers adjusting and planning for the new normal we are all anticipating. HAS 20 Virtual will keep the high standards and unique elements you’ve come to expect during HAS, from world-class keynote and breakout speakers to our other traditional features such as the Analytics Walkabout, Machine Learning Marketplace, and our popular Braindate networking offering.
We’ve all seen COVID-19 disrupt our systems, processes, and assumptions, forcing healthcare organizations worldwide to use data and analytics to predict and execute almost limitless clinical, financial, and operational scenarios. We think it’s important to share those stories and best practices with you in the smartest, safest way possible. Engage with others who are leveraging data and analytics to lead through massive uncertainty and change.
Replay HAS 20 Virtual on demand to learn more about analytics in the new normal.
Voted the #1 Most Influential Physician Executive in the United States in a poll conducted by Modern Healthcare, Dr. Topol is also one of GQ’s 12 “Rock Stars of Science”. Dr. Topol is one of the leading innovators in medicine today, specializing in the use of artificial intelligence, “deep” data, and smart technology in the practice of individualized medicine. Also called precision medicine, individualized medicine tailors diagnosis, prevention, and treatment to the full biological and social profile of the individual, rather than the “average” human of traditional medical science. Dr. Eric Topol is the Founder and Director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute (SRTI). He also is Executive Vice President of Scripps Research and Professor of Molecular Medicine.
Dr. Topol’s recent focus has been on deep learning and deep medicine. Deep-learning uses artificial intelligence to analyze huge quantities of data to inform “deep medicine.” These algorithms are becoming as good at diagnosis as doctors in a field; they don’t get tired, don’t have bad days, are really cheap and fast. To advance this work, Dr. Topol is a leader of the All of Us Precision Medicine Initiative begun by President Obama, the most ambitious US medical research project in history. The Precision Medicine Initiative will track the medical profiles of one million diverse Americans. The grant to Dr. Topol and Scripps Research is one of the largest grants in NIH history, and will use all the tools — genomics, sensors, smartphones — that Topol’s work has spearheaded and enhance the capabilities of individualized medicine.
Before coming to Scripps to create its individualized medicine initiatives, Dr. Topol led the Cleveland Clinic to become the #1 center for heart care in the country and founded its medical school. One of the top 10 most cited researchers in medicine, Eric has published 1200 peer-reviewed articles and over 30 medical textbooks. His research earned him the title “Doctor of the Decade” from the Institute for Scientific Information. He is also the author of three bestsellers on the future of healthcare, The Creative Destruction of Medicine and The Patient Will See You Now, and most recently How Artificial Intelligence Can Make Healthcare Human Again.

Serve a mission greater than yourself. It’s a powerful motto that exemplifies the life, work and impact of Vice Admiral (Ret.) Raquel C. Bono, MD, who served more than 30 years with honor and distinction as a Navy Officer. A board-certified trauma surgeon, Dr. Bono was the first woman surgeon in the military to hold the rank of Vice Admiral. Her legacy is as rich as it is deep, going well beyond the military and medicine. Civilians of every background and leaders in all sectors have been and will be empowered by her transformational leadership, willingness to disrupt convention and passion for pioneering positive change.
Dr. Bono is the recently retired, former CEO and director of the Defense Health Agency (DHA). In this role she led efforts to enable all branches of the U.S. military to provide streamlined health care services. “So much of what I’ve learned in the military health system has great applicability to the private health care system,” says Dr. Bono, who has been named among Modern Healthcare’s 50 Most Influential Clinical Executive Leaders, 50 Most Influential Healthcare Physician Executives and Leaders and 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare. Recognized as a creative disruptor of conventional health care and laser-focused on co-creating health care delivery informed by patients’ values and priorities, Dr. Bono served for 20 years in various leadership positions within the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Military Health System. At the DHA, she integrated an unprecedented $50 billion worldwide health enterprise of 50 hospitals and 300 clinics formerly managed by individual military branches. She also oversaw the DoD deployment of the enterprise health record and advanced the development of the largest federated health system with the Department of Defense and the Veterans’ Health Administration. In 2020, Bono was named a senior fellow at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
As the first female three-star admiral in the medical field in the history of the U.S. Navy, as well as the first Asian-American woman promoted to Vice Admiral, Dr. Bono is accustomed to blazing paths. Born in the Philippines and raised in Texas, she credits her father – also a Navy surgeon – for instilling in her the belief that she could do and be anything, as long as she continued to serve a greater mission than herself. Dr. Bono has dedicated her life’s work to doing exactly that, while inspiring and mentoring others to do the same.
Dr. Bono has made it part of her mission to encourage women and minorities to pursue careers in the military and medicine. A firm believer that diversity strengthens organizations, she launched the Military Health Corps’ Female Physicians Leadership Course to encourage diversity, retain women physicians and give military women the skills they need to succeed in senior leadership roles. Today, it is an annual standalone, three-day course, training more than 100 women military physicians each year. Her advice to attendees: “As a leader, you have to be willing to make change happen. Leadership should make you uncomfortable; it’s not for the weak of heart because it takes courage, self-knowledge and skill.”
Dr. Bono received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas, Austin, her Master of Business Administration from Washington State University (Spokane, WA) and her medical degree from Texas Tech Health Sciences Center (Lubbock, TX). She completed her surgical internship and residency at the Naval Medical Center (Portsmouth, VA) and performed a trauma and critical care fellowship at the Eastern Virginia Graduate School of Medicine (Norfolk, VA).
Dr. Sampson Davis was raised as the fifth of six children in Newark, one of New Jersey’s poorest cities. As a child Dr. Davis grew-up in cramped living quarters, surrounded by fragmented families, crime, and drugs. Still, he was a good student, able to strike the fragile balance between being smart yet socially acceptable on the streets. It was this combination of skills, Dr. Davis says, that were most critical to his survival. While attending University High School in Newark, Dr. Davis met Dr. Rameck Hunt and Dr. George Jenkins, two fellow students who together made a promise to become doctors. Dr. Davis and his two childhood friends each successfully fulfilled their pact and today Dr. Davis is a board certified Emergency Medicine Physician.
Dr. Davis has appeared on numerous talk and radio shows including Oprah, The Today Show, Dr. Oz, Anderson Cooper 360, The View, Tavis Smiley and NPR as well as print publications including but not limited to Readers Digest, O Magazine, People, Washington Post, NY Times, USA Today, Parade and Black Enterprise.

Today Dr. Davis spends his time practicing medicine and traveling the country delivering keynote speeches with timely messages. Dr. Davis believes it is important to give education a sense of style and fashion. To glorify and glamorize education is the key. A face must be present, a concrete image that all individuals across America can draw inspiration from. Dr. Davis considers his 3 D’s, Dedication, Determination and Discipline, as the necessary ingredients to success.
Graduating with honors, Dr. Davis received his bachelor’s degree from Seton Hall University, his medical degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at the same hospital where he was born, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.
Today, Dr. Davis is a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician at several emergency departments in New Jersey. He has been a weekly correspondent on the Tom Joyner Morning Radio Show and CNN where he highlighted prevalent and life- changing medical topics. Dr. Davis has also co-authored three New York Times best- selling books entitled The Pact, We Beat the Street and The Bond.
In 2000 during his residency, Dr. Davis along with his best friends felt the burning need to give back to communities in need, and together created The Three Doctors Foundation.
