About the webinar

Health care organizations make thousands of policy decisions each year that affect the health and well-being of millions of citizens.

Too often, simple reporting is used to create policies that only guess at solutions. What health care leaders need are stronger insights for evidence-based decision making.

We will take a fresh look at how analytics helps leading health organizations make the types of rapid, data-driven decisions needed to manage increasingly complex programs.

Transforming data into insights is central to ensuring that the right care and social supports are provided at the right time and the right cost.
