Data Analytics for Healthcare Leaders

Integrating Statistics and Experience to Drive Your Business Decisions

Two-Day, In-Person Workshop or Four Virtual Half-Days

How to find meaningful insights from your systems and data

Data Analytics is oft-touted as a “new” methodology but most health care professionals have been analyzing data their entire careers.

Hidden in existing systems (block scheduling, practice management, talent management, etc.) are treasure troves of information that will enable you to improve revenue capture, to reallocate resources from underutilized units to emerging areas of need, and to significantly improve clinical and non-clinical outcomes.

This seminar will arm you with the tools and strategies to determine which data are vital, ask the right questions of analysts who support you, interpret results to make good business decisions and effectively communicate your conclusions to varied audiences.
