Using Analytics to Identify & Manage Patient Care Gaps

As healthcare organizations understand the saying, “do more with less” being applied to financial and resource challenges. However, all too often the focus of healthcare seems to be only on making do with less. Join RSM Director for Healthcare Analytics - Jamie McGlothlin - as he shares his experience working with providers over the last 10 years to improve patient outcomes, manage clinical quality, improve patient safety, and drive operational efficiencies. This session will provide insight on how health systems and providers can:

  • Clearly identify patients in need of care and determine those care needs.
  • Develop a prioritized outreach plan to engage patients and close the care gap.
  • Leveraging analytics to drive workflows and decision-making.

Powerful Analytics & Modeling Tools for Providers & Payers: Use Cases and Demos to Enable Operational Strategy

Financial planning and risk management are critical functions within payer and provider organizations.

Join us as we discuss how analytics and lead scoring help payer organizations predict and plan. We will show a demo that determines which leads are most likely to convert using machine learning models created in Einstein Discovery. We will step through how we integrate these statistical models into an actionable Tableau dashboard.

We will also discuss how analytics tools help provider organizations in their accounts receivable management. We will use Einstein Discovery prediction models to predict the likelihood a patient will pay on time and explore actionable recommendations to improve outcomes.

Telling the World’s Climate Story Through Data

The climate emergency is objectively the biggest and most complex challenge our species has ever faced. But it’s about so much more than the environment. Taking climate action is a way to create equality, strengthen the economy, support human health and biodiversity and deliver environmental impact for climate.

Leaders across industries are rising to meet climate issues head on by incorporating ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) into their business. Corporations are setting bold targets, the investor market is demanding climate action and climate transparency; all of this is demonstrated through trusted data. While we've come so far, we still have so far to go. During this session, join Patrick Flynn, VP, Sustainability, Salesforce for insights and perspective on impactful climate action, plus a fireside chat and open Q+A.

Growing an Organization With Data-Driven Decisions in Tableau

Finding ways to take action on available data can be difficult for many organizations. In this session, we will share the story of a Tableau customer with three business objectives they wanted to improve: increase customer acquisition, sell add-on policies, and focus on the most profitable customers. The data to answer these questions existed, but it was used differently by agents, sales managers, billing, marketing, and many other leaders.

This customer used Tableau to centralize their data into a single hub to measure one source of truth. But they took it much further creating a launchpad to prompt action based on a user's specific role, and which strategy was most relevant to them. Join us to learn more about how this customer is doing more than just reporting 'yesterday's weather,' and see how they have leveraged the data they already have to empower many individuals to make the 'next best action.'
