Thank You for a Great
See You Next Year for HAS 22.
HAS 22 - September 13-15, Salt Lake City
Rave Reviews from Last Year's Attendees
I think this event should be a model for how to hold a virtual conference. The live conference is a must attend for my team, and the virtual version has lived up to the same standards.
The virtual experience was beyond any other that I've attended. You all did a wonderful job of creating an "in-person" feel and I appreciate that as a learner. The virtual platform was very intuitive and fun.
Everything was great and well thought out. From the gift packages with swag to the virtual games, it was fun and amazing!
This set the standard for what I will now expect from future virtual summits/conferences/educational experiences. Great job.
This was a wonderful summit. So much valuable information that will be passed on at my organization.
Create a Winning Team Approach
In the new digital era, data and analytics are the most important, foundational, mission-critical assets to enable healthcare success. Pursuing a multi-domain approach to data and analytics unlocks a winning strategy to increase revenue, decrease cost, and improve quality. Therefore, healthcare organizations must simultaneously manage these three aspects of healthcare to drive long-term improvement.
HAS 21 Virtual will explore trends and best practice experiences across multiple domains for analytics success. HAS 21 Virtual will feature speakers and breakout sessions that highlight analytics in AI, clinical and quality, population health, financial, life sciences, and health equity. In addition to world-class speakers, participants can expect the quintessential HAS events including the Analytics Showcase, AI Showcase, and the popular Braindate networking offering.
Grab your passport, skip the jet lag and long airport lines, and join us virtually at international hotels in Singapore, Dubai, and London for a premier educational experience unlike any other. And, of course, we’ll continue to have the fun you’ve grown to expect at HAS Virtual with quiz questions, daily scavenger hunts, and prizes.
Steve is one of the pioneers in using analytics as a competitive advantage in the NBA and he will be sharing his learnings with our audience.
Beginning his seventh season as Head Coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr has guided the club through five of the most prolific seasons in NBA history with a list of accomplishments that includes three NBA championships, five-straight NBA Finals appearances, the NBA’s single-season wins record (73), an NBA Coach of the Year award (2015-16), and five of the six winningest seasons in franchise history. He owns an overall playoff record of 77-28 (.733), the highest winning percentage among NBA head coaches all-time that have coached a minimum of 25 postseason games. On April 19, 2018 Kerr earned his 50th playoff victory in just his 65th game, accomplishing the feat in fewer games than any coach in NBA history.
In October 2018, Kerr was named as an assistant coach on the 2019-20 USA Basketball Men’s National Team. Kerr, along with Indiana Pacers Head Coach Nate McMillan and Villanova University Head Coach Jay Wright, join the staff of USA and San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich to complete the USA National Team coaching staff. The coaches led the USA National Team in 2019-20, which included the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China (Aug. 31-Sept. 15, 2019) and the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. Kerr was a member of the USA Basketball team that captured the 1986 World Championship title in Madrid, the last American men’s senior team composed strictly of amateur players to capture a gold medal. A finalist for the 1988 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team, Kerr was also a member of the 1988 USA Select Team that finished 6-0 during a European tour.
Kerr, who won five NBA championships during a 15-year playing career, now owns eight championships as either a player or coach, becoming the first to win at least three NBA titles as a player and three as a coach. Kerr is just the third coach in NBA history to win three championships in his first four seasons at the helm, joining Phil Jackson (1991, 1992, 1993) and John Kundla (1949, 1950, 1952) as the only coaches to do so.
In the 2017 postseason, Golden State posted a 16-1 (.941) record, the best single-season playoff record in league history that included a playoff-record 15-game win streak. In Kerr’s first three seasons on the bench, the Warriors became the first team in NBA history to win at least 65 games in three consecutive campaigns (67, 73, 67).
In 2014-15, Kerr engineered the most successful campaign of any first-year coach in NBA history en route to Golden State’s first title in 40 years, posting a then-franchise-record 67 victories and establishing NBA records for most wins and highest winning percentage (67-15, .817) by a first-year head coach. The Warriors saw a 16-game improvement in 2014-15 over the previous season (51-31 in 2013-14), an NBA record for the biggest improvement by a 50-win team in league history. Kerr followed his inaugural campaign by winning the 2015- 16 NBA Coach of the Year Award for leading the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 regular-season wins in 2015-16 (73-9, .890), eclipsing the previous mark of 72 set by a Chicago Bulls squad in 1995-96 that featured Kerr in a reserve role. In addition to the single-season wins record, the Warriors set new league marks for single-season road wins (34), consecutive wins to begin a season (24), and consecutive regular-season home wins (54).
Originally named to the position on May 19, 2014, Kerr is the 25th head coach in franchise history and the 20th since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962. He is the fourth Warriors coach to win an NBA title, joining Eddie Gottlieb (1947), George Senesky (1956), and Alvin Attles (1975). He is also just the third coach in franchise history to be named Coach of the Year, joining Alex Hannum (1963-64) and Don Nelson (1991-92). Twice, Kerr and his coaching staff were named to coach the Western Conference All-Star Team (2015, 2017).
Kerr, 54, owns 30 years of NBA experience as a player, coach, television analyst, and front office executive, including a three-year stint (2007-10) as president of basketball operations and general manager for the Phoenix Suns. During his time as the Suns GM, the club posted a 155-91 (.630) record and earned a pair of playoff berths, including a trip to the 2010 Western Conference Finals.
Having made the playoffs 11 times during his playing career, Kerr is one of only 26 players in NBA history to win five championships, earning three rings with Chicago and two with San Antonio. A key reserve for Chicago during the team’s three-peat championship run from 1996-98, Kerr famously hit the game-winning, title-clinching shot in Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals. He won his fourth consecutive championship in 1999 with the San Antonio Spurs to become one of only two non-Boston Celtics to win four-straight NBA titles (joining Frank Saul, 1951-54). His fifth ring came in his second stint with the Spurs during his final NBA campaign in 2002-03.
The NBA’s all-time three-point percentage leader, having converted on 45.4 percent (726-of-1599) of his attempts from long range, Kerr amassed career averages of 6.0 points, 1.8 assists, and 1.2 rebounds in 910 regular season games with the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs (twice) and Portland Trail Blazers.
Kerr was originally selected by the Phoenix Suns in the second round (50th overall) of the 1988 NBA Draft out of the University of Arizona, where he capped his collegiate career as a senior in 1988 by helping lead the Wildcats to their first Final Four appearance. An All-Pac 10 guard in both 1986 and 1988, he remains the school’s career leader in three-point field goal percentage (57.3 percent).
During his playing career, Kerr played for some of the most successful coaches in the history of the game, including Phil Jackson, Popovich, Lenny Wilkens, Cotton Fitzsimmons, and Lute Olson. Born in Beirut, Lebanon, and raised in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Kerr was a ballboy in 1978 and 1979 at UCLA, where his late father, Malcolm, was a professor.
As a broadcaster, Kerr has served two different four-year stints as a game analyst on TNT’s award-winning NBA coverage. In addition to a full slate of regular-season games, he also worked TNT’s marquee events, including the NBA All-Star Game, playoffs, and conference finals. During his most recent stint in broadcasting, beginning in 2010, Kerr also served as an analyst for NCAA Tournament and Final Four coverage on Turner Sports and CBS.
Kerr earned a degree in general studies from Arizona with an emphasis in history, sociology, and English in 1988 and advocates for gun control, supporting such organizations as the Brady campaign, Sandy Hook Promise, March For Our Lives, and Giffords. Kerr also helps fundraise for Oakland Promise, an initiative launched by Mayor Libby Schaaf and the Oakland Unified School District in 2016 that aims to triple the number of Oakland high school graduates who complete college by the year 2024. In October 2014, Steve and Margot Kerr committed $1 million to the University of Arizona to assist with the McKale Memorial Center renovation and future academic facility enhancements.
Born on September 27, 1965, Steve and his wife, Margot, have two sons, Nicholas and Matthew, and one daughter, Madeleine. Nick received his degree from the University of San Diego in 2015 and completed his graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, where he played as a walk-on for the Bears’ basketball team for one season. Nick is now an assistant video coordinator for the Warriors. Madeleine received her degree from UC Berkeley, where she was a member of the volleyball team, as is now a second-year law student there. Matthew is a senior at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

What if our high-tech devices could decipher and respond to our every action and feeling? Rana el Kaliouby, Ph.D., is on a mission to humanize technology with artificial intelligence (AI) that understands not just our commands but our facial expressions, body language and emotional states, or what she calls “Human Perception AI.” She envisions and works to create a world where devices and technologies that once separated us will bring us together. It’s the next frontier in AI, with commercial applications across industries – and it’s closer than we think.
A computer scientist, technologist, entrepreneur and business leader, Dr. el Kaliouby believes that “humanizing technology gives us a golden opportunity to reimagine how we connect with machines, and, therefore, how we connect with each other.” Co-founder and CEO of Affectiva, the category-defining MIT spinoff and pioneer of Emotion AI, el Kaliouby invented the company’s award-winning emotion recognition technology. Using large, diverse datasets – comprised of 8.8 million faces analyzed in 87 countries – to detect complex and nuanced emotions and cognitive states, the Emotion AI platform combines facial expression and tone of voice to infer how a person is feeling. Now, having advanced the technology beyond just emotions, el Kaliouby is pioneering Human Perception AI: software that analyzes face and voice to detect nuanced human emotions, complex cognitive states such as drowsiness and distraction, activities and objects people use. El Kaliouby has raised over $50 million in venture and strategic funding for Affectiva. Among other applications, the company’s technology is used by leading companies in the automotive industry to improve road safety and deliver better, more personalized transportation experiences. In addition, 25% of the Fortune Global 500 companies use Affectiva’s technology to test consumer engagements with ads, videos and TV programming. It is also used in healthcare, education, social robotics, conversational interfaces and more.
Teaching machines to measure and interpret human emotions has the potential to dramatically improve lives, with such powerful applications as assisting doctors and nurses in delivering better care, engaging students and personalizing their learning experience, and increasing road safety by making “emotionally aware” vehicles. It also promises to forever change the rules of consumer engagement by providing real-time insight into viewers’ emotional responses to brands, ads and other digital content. El Kaliouby’s work and research into new frontiers for AI technology are the subject of her upcoming book with Carol Colman, “Girl Decoded: A Scientist’s Quest to Reclaim Our Humanity By Bringing Emotional Intelligence to Technology” (Penguin Random House, April 2020).
A passionate advocate for innovation, ethics in AI and diversity, Dr. el Kaliouby was recently appointed an Executive Fellow at Harvard Business School where she will co-teach AI-related classes. As her popular TED talk made apparent, Dr. el Kaliouby has the ability to simplify and translate complex science, and make it accessible to any audience. Her credentials as a popular spokesperson for science led to her co-hosting the PBS Nova Series, “Nova Wonders,” which premiered in April 2018. A founder of her own technology company, an accomplished inventor, and one of few women to have successfully transitioned from academia to business, Dr. el Kaliouby – and her work – earn considerable recognition.
Named to the 2018 Thinkers50 Radar list of management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led; to Fortune’s 2018 40 Under 40 of the most influential young people in business; Forbes America’s Top 50 Women in Tech; Inc.’s Female Founders 100; Bostinno’s 50 on Fire; and WIRED’s 25 Geniuses Who Are Creating the Future of Business. Recently inducted into the Women in Engineering Hall of Fame, Dr. el Kaliouby is also a World Economic Forum (WEF) Young Global Leader and a newly minted Young Presidents’ Organization member. She is also often cited in and interviewed by top business and mainstream outlets, including The New Yorker, Wired, Forbes, Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, TIME Magazine, Fortune, CNN, CBS and Reddit.
Prior to founding Affectiva, Dr. el Kaliouby was a research scientist at the MIT Media Lab where she spearheaded applications for facial coding to benefit mental health, autism and other research areas. Born and raised in Cairo, she received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in computer science from the American University in Cairo and a Ph.D. from the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.
