June 27, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

$15 - $25

New advancements in technology are revolutionizing the way data and information is analyzed, understood and communicated. It’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organizations do with the data that matters. Attend our June meeting to find out how it can impact your business as well as your life.

Pinpointing the root causes of societal outcomes is essential to improving our collective quality of life. This requires a detailed understanding of the way populations interact with, and are affected by, the social, economic and ecological systems that shape the human experience. Empowered with this knowledge, communities can pinpoint solutions and drive positive outcomes.

Big data, analytics and visualization hold the key to addressing this challenge. Over the past decade, the collection and dissemination of data related to physical, social, economic, ecological and behavioral conditions has increased faster than at any point in human history. In parallel, advanced methods such as machine learning, cloud based computing and predictive analytics are creating innovations faster than ever imagined.

Charles Rath, the President and CEO of RS21, will showcase the company’s latest innovations in web-based interactive decision platforms. He will also provide useful insights about the tools that are being used, the process RS21 is using to create them and the unique blend of experts that are required to translate information into insights. https://rs21.io/#!/

TriCore Reference Laboratories (TriCore) — http://www.tricore.org/ — is seeking to assist other organizations in the way medicine is delivered by creating laboratory-driven population health management and targeted intervention tools. Their efforts focus providing clients solutions within the healthcare paradigm shift from fee-for-service to value driven healthcare.

Timely identification of patients in need of care coordination requires real-time data indicating the reliance of latent claims data ineffective. Laboratory results account for 3% of annual healthcare spending yet they influence up to 70% of disease diagnoses and management decisions. Therefore, laboratory data may increase the effectiveness of care coordination by identifying patients at risk of comorbidities associated with high cost high occurring health conditions such as pregnancy, hepatitis C, and diabetes. Tricore relies on longitudinal patient history to determine risk for complications to support timely decisions regarding continuity of care that could lead to improved outcomes and decreased costs.

In the state of New Mexico, TriCore Reference Laboratories provides laboratory services for approximately 60-70% of the New Mexico population with a broad geographic foot print containing over 21 clinic sites and 28 draw sites that perform 9 million tests annually. With almost 20 years of longitudinal, historical laboratory results and support from more than 45 pathologists, TriCore is in a unique position to provide actionable data that can support MCOs in their efforts to supply effective care coordination.
