Join the discussion at HIMSS13: Using predictive analytics to improve care and efficiencies

Data analytics is one of the most effective tools at your disposal to reduce costs and improve quality and efficiency. But to take improvement efforts to the next level--to predict and prevent 30-day readmissions and adverse events rather than just responding to them, for example--you need the power of predictive analytics.

FierceHealthIT has gathered an outstanding panel of healthcare executives from top organizations, including Rush University Medical Center, Intermountain Medical Center and Muir Medical Group. They'll share real-world examples of how to use predictive analytics to improve care quality and efficiency in a conversational, roundtable format.

The event, which we're hosting in partnership with the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), takes place Wednesday, March 6 at 7 a.m.

If you're planning to attend the 2013 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society's annual conference, I hope you'll set aside some time to join us for breakfast and what promises to be a lively--and important--conversation. Look forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans. - Gienna (@Gienna)
