31 – Have Data—Need Analysts. Lessons Learned from the Woodworking Industry

Recent advances in healthcare technology are designed to help organizations achieve the Quadruple Aim. While IT vendors tout better tools as the solution for healthcare woes, all data analysts and architects know this isn’t true. John Wadsworth, senior vice president, Health Catalyst, will share valuable, practical learnings from his 20 plus years of experience as a data analyst in this hands-on session that will explore the rich, analytic ecosystem found in health care.  John will share healthcare industry examples that highlight the required synergy of technology (e.g. EHRs, EDWs, ancillary health and reporting systems, etc.) and data analyst skill proficiencies that help drive sustained clinical, financial, and operational improvements.

John’s unique presentation style leverages simple and fun analogies to galvanize key concepts for technology, clinical, and executive attendees.  This year, he will bring lessons learned from the woodworking industry and demonstrate how they apply to health care analytics.  Come prepared to engage, laugh, and learn. You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of the skills needed to fully leverage your analytic ecosystem.
