GCC HIMSS Webinar: Actionable Big Data Analytics in Health & Life Sciences

Leading health & life sciences organizations are addressing a wide variety of business challenges such as reducing 30-day hospital readmissions, improving patient safety, and enhancing drug discovery by harnessing the power of their data with “Big Data” analytics solutions. These solutions enable organizations to assemble and analyze information from different data ‘silos’ such as patient data from the EHR, claims data from payer organizations, and even data outside the traditional healthcare context such as socio-economic and patient generated data in a scalable, cost-effective manner. Importantly, these tools comprehend both structured and unstructured information and help organizations move from retrospective reports to real-time predictive analytics. In this session, we will discuss the top industry trends and use cases driving demand for advanced analytics, learn about real-world case studies where health & life sciences organizations have deployed advanced big data analytics solutions including the benefits they have derived, and finally, discuss practical steps for adopting these solutions and capabilities within your own organization.
