The stakes have never been higher for healthcare. Costs are on the rise. Legislation is creating uncertainty. Payment models are changing. How can healthcare address these challenges?
The answers are in your data!
Healthcare analytics is the next imperative in the disruptive healthcare transformation environment. However, confusion abounds and few forums exist where healthcare professionals can get unbiased, practical, educational advice that has proven to really work in healthcare.
The Healthcare Analytics Summit 2014 will deliver answers. You will hear from the best thinkers from across the industry and experience analytics-intense rich breakout sessions. This will be the best, most educational and practical healthcare analytics conference on the planet. Unlike any other summit, this experience will be driven by data using live session polling, real-time analysis, and advanced event applications at your fingertips so you can touch and breathe analytics. Attending HAS ’14 will accelerate your application of analytics best practices in your current role and avoid the time-consuming and costly pitfalls of others who learned by trial and error.
There are three major ways we will do this:
BEST PRACTICES EDUCATION
we are committed to educating on the most important analytics topics, from experts across the industry and within Health Catalyst, regardless of whether you are a Health Catalyst client or not. We will provide the same unbiased, vendor-neutral, educational approach that we use in our webinars, but in an interactive, hands-on approach resulting in a more substantive, engaging experience. We will present a range of best practice sharing, including inviting a number of health systems to present examples of key principles that can be applied in a variety of settings. We also have a number of interesting educational examples, vignettes, and activities that we are calling “ah-ha” experiences, which help demonstrate key principles in fun and memorable ways.
A UNIQUE ANALYTICS EXPERIENCE, BASED ON AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION
Instead of listening to typical one-way presentations, we will provide interactive, hands-on experiences with analytics at the core of everything. Each of you will have access to a mobile app for audience response and participation. In a unique way, you will be able to share content—poll answers, questions and comments—with speakers. Throughout the summit, we will share group-wide and individual analytic insights based on your responses, resulting in a more substantive, engaging experience. We will have fun examples, real-time feedback, and demonstrations with you and your data responses.
A VARIETY OF TOPICS, OPTIMIZED FOR TEAM ATTENDANCE AND ENGAGEMENT
Data-driven healthcare requires cross-functional team efforts, so this summit will be tailored for team participation in several ways.
First, there will be many breakout sessions with specific team exercises and participation. Team participation will vary – some exercises will involve specific organizational teams, and other exercises will involve a mix of organizations and functions in ad-hoc teams, learning from each other. All will demonstrate the need to work across functions and organizations to improve results.
Second, there will be other instances in which organizational teams will want to split up to cover multiple sessions. There will be two sets of four concurrent afternoon breakout sessions each day, making it difficult to decide which to attend. Bringing a team will allow a divide-and-conquer strategy in to cover multiple topics for later team sharing.

Who Should Attend
We have optimized this summit for many types of organizations, roles, and situations based on much feedback. However there may be some for whom this summit is not the best fit. We thought it would be helpful to describe who would best be served by attending this summit.
WHAT CHALLENGES ARE WE ADDRESSING IN THIS SUMMIT?
You have a confusing array of data sources and analytics tools and need a more comprehensive analytics strategy.
You experience difficulty pulling together executive or department level reports that show a single version of the truth or that satisfy your clinical, operational, financial, or administrative requests.
You have an integrated data and analytics infrastructure but face resistance from different groups who reject using a centralized approach. You are looking for ways to accelerate analytics adoption throughout the organization.
You have financial pressures to reduce costs, but don’t have a systematic way of identifying, measuring, prioritizing and tackling your healthcare waste opportunities.
You have a well-established data and analytics system, but feel you are reaching a limit to what you are able to do.
Past acquisition or mergers have caused integrated reporting challenges across organization silos.
You have clinician enthusiasm for using analytics, but they are frustrated by the difficulty or inability to get data, reports, or analytics in a timely or accurate fashion.
You have pockets of teams making great progress in data-driven care improvement, but other teams are not able to get support or replicate their success.
You have researchers looking to conduct research and track results, but are not able to get the data and reports they need.
You are a Health Catalyst client and are looking for ways to accelerate your progress by bringing a broader team together for more intensive in-person training.
WHAT TYPES OF ORGANIZATIONS AND ROLES USUALLY FACE THESE STRUGGLES?
C-level executives, physician leaders, nurse leaders, patient safety and quality leaders, IT leaders, analytics leaders, and front-line cross functional teams.
These problems can occur in physician groups, single or multi-hospital systems, large hospitals, integrated delivery networks, academic medical centers, small community hospitals, payer networks, ACOs or other types of accountable care or population health initiatives with health organizations.
If you see yourself in any of these roles, organizations, or situations, then you must attend this summit.
In particular, if you belong to a cross functional team (IT, clinical, analytics, financial, operations) tasked with addressing one or more of these issues, this summit has been designed to provide key principles that help teams work together.
WHO SHOULD NOT ATTEND?
Teams that are so consumed in developing or implementing an EMR that they don’t yet have the bandwidth to give analytics the attention it deserves. An EMR is a critical foundation that is a precursor to but not sufficient for successful analytics.
Small clinics or individual physicians not yet focused on systematic, data-driven care improvement. The need for analytics grows exponentially as a practice or health system grows.
Large, well-established healthcare systems operating at levels 7 and 8 of the healthcare analytics adoption model. Typically they are using prescriptive analytics at the point of care to improve patient outcomes, natural language processing, and analytics to support interventional decision support. This summit does not focus directly on those highly advanced analytics capabilities, although we will cover these concepts at a high level.
Vendors, sponsors, or consultants trying to sell to attendees. This is a highly educational-oriented experience, not a vendor or sales oriented summit.
