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

(Tuesday, September 12)

We are excited to introduce the Health Catalyst User Group on Tuesday September 12 from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. We’ll have a full day of the latest and greatest information from Health Catalyst and leading-edge best practices from our clients.

In January, we had our first new product introduction briefing in Park City and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees. However, we were limited in the number of clients who could attend. So, we are moving the new product briefing to be the primary focus of our annual user group session during our HAS pre-summit meetings.

This year, we’ll hear a company overview from our CEO Dan Burton, and then spend most of the day hearing from Dale Sanders and the product development team on our latest product roadmap information. We’ll also learn best practices from our leading health systems about the significant benefits of giving widespread data access to your entire health system. Finally, we’ll break out into two groups, including our new Advisory Board session or a special networking session activity. View detailed agenda.

Option 2 – Health Catalyst University (additional charges, all invited)

(Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12)

This year, we have an expanded set of Health Catalyst University offerings to include four different sessions: three courses for analysts and data architects and one for team members wanting to improve their data-driven outcomes improvement skills.

The Health Catalyst University classes are smaller, instructor-led classes offered at an additional cost. They are affordable and packed with value. The classes are also only offered at HAS, so take advantage of this unique opportunity.

B-PROVISIONING TRACK

Audience:  analysts and data architects

As an expert in serving up data, you know how to move the puzzle pieces around, but what’s different about the puzzle pieces in healthcare data? And which of those pieces are important for helping drive outcomes improvement for your organization? In this hands on, focused workshop, you’ll learn how to put your database skills to work when it comes to pulling data for improvement, and profiling datasets. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Describe the importance of using a family of measures
  • Separate signal and noise within time series data
  • Use best practices for discovering data completeness and distribution
  • Efficiently profile data within Excel

C-VISUALIZATION TRACK

Audience:  analysts and data architects

If visualization is your focus, then you know the importance of making things easy to read. But what about making the meaningful action clear? In this hands on, in depth workshop, you’ll learn how to put your visualization skills to work when it comes to pulling data for improvement, and visualizing datasets. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Describe why visualization is important
  • Recognize commonly accepted presentation rules
  • Identify weakness in existing visualizations

D-MAKING DECISIONS WITH DATA TRACK (Back by popular demand!)

Audience:  Leaders and members of data-driven improvement teams

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 and statistical process 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

What Attendees From Last Year Had to Say

I can’t imagine a better summit. My brain is buzzing with all these new tools, resources, case studies, and innovative ideas and softwares. 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 was the best conference in over 20 years that I have attended.

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!

The more energy you can provide on topics of Healthcare the better. 80s night, dine on us, and fun runs were so AWESOME! Hands down best conference I have ever been to! Thanks to all who put forth the effort to get it all done.

You don’t need my help. Fine job. Best conference of the year!
