What is Health Analytics?
With increasing demands from consumers for enhanced healthcare quality and increased value, providers are under pressure to deliver better outcomes and control growing operational costs. Analytics provides the mechanism to sort through complex data and help deliver on these demands.
Meet Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, a doctor in Camden, New Jersey, whose work was profiled in an episode of PBS Frontline (7/27/11). He used data to map "hot spots" of healthcare high-utilizers and was able to reduce hospital visits and costs by 40 to 50 percent.
