There’s been a lot of recent press around poor data quality and its tangible impact on healthcare. Even large software companies aren’t immune to data quality problems, and there have been several lawsuits brought against EMR and EHR companies for using bad data in their advanced algorithms.
While artificial intelligence and predictive modeling present attractive “pie in the sky” projections of better healthcare worldwide, even the most sophisticated models and tools can’t provide value if the data they use lacks in quality. In short, even the best algorithms can result in poor outcomes if the underlying data is flawed. How do healthcare organizations and technology companies ensure the data behind their decisions is of the highest quality possible, every time?
Mike Noshay, Chief Strategy Officer at Verinovum and Will Tesch, CEO at HealthLX, will speak, utilizing real-world experiences and examples, about how healthcare data quality is foundational to maximizing the benefit of tools like AWS HealthLake. The discussion will assume a somewhat provocative perspective considering recent consolidation efforts through vendor rollups, like Oracle purchasing Cerner, or vis-à-vis ecosystem enablers, like Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare or Amazon HealthLake.
