Option 1 – Health Catalyst User Group (no charge, all clients invited)

(Tuesday, September 10)

The Health Catalyst User Group and Customer Advisory Board will take place all day on Tuesday, September 10, starting with a special “Breakfast with Champions” at 7:30 where you will have breakfast with Health Catalyst team members, other clients, and a special opportunity to meet the finalists for our first annual Catalyst Awards that will take place later that day.

The User Group will start with a company strategy overview from Dan Burton, a technology vision strategy from Dale Sanders, and a solutions and strategy overview from Tom Burton, followed by a morning filled with user selectable breakout sessions. These sessions will focus on sharing our latest updates on our products, solutions, strategies, and helpful use cases and best practices from both Health Catalyst and Health Catalyst clients.

Back by popular demand, we will also offer a private, client-only, early preview of the Products and Service Showcase and the Digital Innovation Showcase where you can talk to our product teams and see new and innovative industry digital solutions.

Making Decisions With Data

You Have a Dashboard and Lots of Reports… Now What?

Every day we swim in an ocean of data and try to make sense of it all with dashboards and reports. However, if we really get honest, how many of us can say that dashboards and reports have yielded sustained outcomes improvement? We can’t—because data alone is insufficient to drive the changes required in this new era of healthcare. During this hands-on, full-day session, national experts will help you move beyond the “so what?” With a small instructor to student ratio, expect to be challenged and engaged. You’ll learn to take on a new mindset and behaviors that, when coupled with data-driven improvement methods, result in meaningful outcomes improvements.

Specifically, here’s what we’ll cover during this intense and concentrated period:

  • Why a single data point rarely tells the whole story
  • How to avoid making big decisions based on partial information
  • Why even the best data can’t give you sustained outcomes improvements if there isn’t a culture of improvement

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Understand variation, run charts, and control charts
  • Evaluate processes through a family of measures
  • Learn what polarities are (think: quality and cost) and how they impact decision making
  • Recognize the need for both technical and adaptive leadership

Who should attend: This session has been designed for leaders and members of data-driven improvement teams.

What to bring: You’ll want to bring an open mind and enthusiasm to learn in a way you may not have experienced before. All supplies will be provided.

Notes: Breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee.

What Past Attendees Have to Say

This is the best conference I’ve ever been to in all my years in healthcare…and that’s over 20 years

I can’t imagine a better summit. My brain is buzzing with all these new tools, resources, case studies, and innovative ideas and software. I’ll be back next year, and if next year is as good as this year, you’ll definitely have made a follower for life out of me.

This is by far the best conference I have attended. It was well planned and coordinated. Great job to the team for putting this amazing event together.

Same place, same time next year!! The best conference I’ve attended, fabulous job!

It definitely exceeded my expectations. A lot of conferences I go to, you take a lot information but it doesn’t have a practical application. This is completely different because I feel like I have a lot of information I’m excited about and can apply to my situation.

We talk about value-based care…this is a value-based conference. Considering what other conferences costs, the value I get out of this is tremendous.
