Some Potential Positive Effects of More Thorough Data Analysis in the Healthcare Field

Doctors, nurse leaders, mental health therapists and information technology professionals who have an interest in the use of data in health care are encouraged to attend HAS 18, the Healthcare Analytics Summit for 2018.

Innovations and Improvements

Innovations and improvements in various areas of healthcare are focuses of analytics in this broad field. Some examples include more effective patient-centered strategies, cost cutting that does not compromise patient care, and making important predictions in regard to health in the community.

Mental and Physical Health

Researchers are fascinated by a multitude of topics that provide insight into physical and mental health problems, and the potential for better treatment methods. The state of one’s mental health can be connected with many physical disorders, and the more data that practitioners provide about their patient populations, the more effective mental and physical treatment can become.

The Usefulness of Combined Data

The electronic healthcare records system stands to be vastly improved and to have much greater participation. The challenges this presents can seem daunting, but the possibilities are compelling for people working in healthcare and for IT professionals. Confidential results can be viewed in the aggregate without accessing individual patient information. The combined data is highly useful for healthcare practitioners, insurance company underwriters and many other people connected with the field.

A Noteworthy Example

Just one example of a noteworthy problem that relates to both physical and mental health is the drug epidemic crisis in the United States. A significant percentage of the population struggles with addiction to opiates and heroin. Researchers want to learn how to minimize or even eliminate the risk of addiction when doctors prescribe pain medication for patients. Analysis of data can shed light on how to proceed.

Focusing on digital data may seem like a cold and technical enterprise to the general population, but it can provide more positive results for patients and their families. Innovations in therapy and higher quality of health care in general are potential results that people planning to attend the conference find exciting.
