Predictive Analytics in Action: Tackling Readmissions
Jason Haupt, PhD, Senior Statistician, Allina Performance Resources – Clinical Analytics, ALLINA HEALTH

An emerging function of clinical analytics is to match patients to the right services at the point of need. One method to perform this matching is to use predictive analytics. We will share how Allina Health has employed a strategy of quasi-real-time risk score calculations based on various data sources available in an enterprise data warehouse to pair patients with those services, including the development and implementation of a readmission predictive model. Then, we will…

Healthcare Analytics in Epidemiology and Infection Control
Ari Robicsek, VP, Clinical & Quality Informatics, Associate Chief Medical Information Officer, NORTH SHORE UNIVERSITY HEALTH SYSTEM

Advances in EHR adoption and analytics have created enormous opportunities in the field of healthcare epidemiology. In this session, we will explore predictive modeling, clinical decision support, and analytics that combine molecular with large-scale clinical data to manage epidemiological challenges in novel ways. Examples will include rationalizing test usage through risk-based testing, tracking the movement of pathogens through a hospital system, identifying patients at risk for recurrent contagious intestinal infections and community-wide surveillance for syndromes such as flu, pertussis and asthma. The potential for these new technologies to reduce costs and improve care will be highlighted.
