About this paper
For its 8th annual Health Care & Life Sciences Executive Conference, SAS brought together great minds from across the industry – provider, pharma, payer and policy segments – to discuss the promise of data and analytics in improving medical decisions, costs and outcomes, particularly as the industry is being reshaped in the U.S. by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This paper summarizes the Executive Leadership Panel Discussion, which offered insights from various industry perspectives: government, the research and provider communities, and health care IT.
