B-PROVISIONING TRACK

Take Your Data Skills to the Next Level

Living in the world of healthcare data, you may know how to move the puzzle pieces around. But how do you know which pieces are important? Or which ones will show the whole picture and drive outcomes improvement?

In this hands-on, focused workshop, you will learn ways to grow and fine-tune your technical skills. Then we’ll explore how you might apply these skills to improve care, reduce costs, and save lives.

Topics will cover the spectrum from warehouse models well suited for healthcare data to using Excel to spark conversations about your organization’s data. Plan on an engaging day filled with opportunities to connect with like-minded peers, work on problems together, and learn from experts.
