Data — for most health care organizations, it presents the greatest opportunity, and the greatest challenge. With an overwhelming majority of NEJM Catalyst Insights Council members calling analytics extremely important to their long-term competitive strategy, it is crucial to get data collection and analysis right in the service of the ultimate goal, better health.

In this free, live web event from NEJM Catalyst, a slate of experts who have used data to bring about positive change in their organizations share insights on how analytics can help target care more effectively and reduce costs. Our speakers — a cross-section of executives, clinical leaders, and researchers — show you how to pull actionable directives from all parts of your organization, including what’s generated via artificial intelligence, genomics, precision medicine, and patient-reported outcomes.

You will learn:

  • How to use data to make the case for change internally and to the broader community.
  • How to arrive at measures that actually matter, including patient-reported outcome measurements.
  • What the massive amounts of data generated by artificial intelligence, genomics, and precision medicine will mean to providers and patients.
  • How to put information in front of people in a way they can’t ignore and that will improve health care incentives, as well as individual and population health.

Welcome and Introduction

Namita Seth Mohta, MD, Clinical Editor, NEJM Catalyst; Center for Healthcare Delivery Sciences, Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Opening Talk

Amy Compton-Phillips, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer, Providence St. Joseph Health; NEJM Catalyst Theme Leader for Care Redesign and Event Chair

Data changes everything in health care – the understanding of illness and wellness, the pace of care delivery, and the case for change. Analytics experts must present information in consumable ways that encourage new behavior, providers must understand the new and best sources of information, and leaders must drive the change.


Session 1: Measuring Differently: The Right Data

Health care providers are required to collect a plethora of measures. But what are the measures that truly matter? The chief medical analytics officer for the nation’s third-largest health system will join an expert on patient-reported outcomes measures to talk about how to gather the right data and analyze it to achieve the important outcomes.


Ari Robicsek, MD, Chief Medical Analytics Officer, Providence St. Joseph Health

Judith F. Baumhauer, MD, MPH, Associate Chair of Academic Affairs and Professor of Orthopaedics, University of Rochester


Elizabeth A. McGlynn, PhD, Vice President, Kaiser Permanente Research; Executive Director, Kaiser Permanente Center for Effectiveness & Safety Research




Session 2: Processing Differently: AI and Machine Learning

Leaders and analytics experts must learn how to present critical information in way that can’t be ignored. Increasingly, that data will be generated by artificial intelligence, genomics, and precision medicine, which have the potential to revolutionize health care. Hear from a researcher on machine learning in health care and an innovation leader for a top technology company.

Session 3: Incenting Differently: Outcomes That Matter

Fee-for-service incentives lead to the wrong metrics of care delivery, and therefore the wrong outcomes. A physician leader and the head of a public health system will speak about how to ensure that care delivery centers on the health of individuals and populations.
