ISS Seminar: How Analytics is Transforming Healthcare

Healthcare is being transformed through better use of data and analytics. The use of analytics can help healthcare providers and payers better predict who are at risk of specific disease conditions as well as educate them on preventive steps they can take. Statistical methods continue to play an important role while new emerging technologies are establishing their reputations in solving complex problems in a timely fashion. The technological shifts allow healthcare providers to analyse large volumes of information quickly so they can identify and take action on their patients’ medical conditions faster and more accurately.

Analytics can be the key to successfully managing your healthcare organisation. Come join our panel and other like-minded professionals to discover the power of analytics for a better healthcare delivery.

Come and hear:

  • How the treatment and prevention of disease are being transformed by exponential datasets and systems biology
  • How clinicians are leveraging Clinical Data Analytics for evidence based real-time decision making
  • How Data Management and Governance operate in the healthcare setting
  • How the state-of-the-art computational modelling approaches on healthcare applications provide numerous opportunities for better healthcare delivery

Seminar Agenda

8:30am Registration
9:00am Welcome Address
Dr. Carol Anne Hargreaves Chief, Enterprise Business Analytics Programme, Institute of Systems Science, NUS
9:10am Transforming Healthcare: The Quantification of Everything

Dr. Steven Tucker, MD, FACP, FAMS Medical Director, Tucker Medical

The modern healthcare system is experiencing a significant disruptive change consistent with the technological shifts that have altered the communications, publishing, travel, and banking industries. The roots of this transformation can be found across many topics including the Quantified Self movement, mobile technology platforms, wearable computing, and rapid advances in genomic and precision medicine. Since public health is facing a human tsunami of obesity and diabetes as well as cancer and heart disease it is worth understanding how medicine can pivot from traditional illness-focused treatments to a new paradigm of maintenance of wellness. The treatment and prevention of disease are being transformed by exponential datasets and systems biology.

9:45am Medical Informatics: Computational Analytics in Healthcare

Dr. Liu Nan Senior Research Scientist and Principal Investigator, Singapore General Hospital

Computational modeling methods have been applied to a wide spectrum of applications such as big data analytics, information retrieval, computational finance, robotics, bioinformatics, computer vision, image processing, and medicine. With the advancement of computing power, sophisticated modeling methods gained popularity in converting imagination into reality. Conventional statistical and mathematical methods continue to play important roles while new emerging technologies like machine learning and data mining have established their reputations in solving complex and difficult problems. Applying the state-of-the-art computational modeling approaches on healthcare applications provides numerous opportunities for better healthcare delivery. This talk aims to introduce a few projects that are currently conducted in Singapore General Hospital where medical informatics techniques are used.

10:20am Coffee Break
10:50am Improving Clinical and Operational Outcomes by Leveraging Healthcare Data Analytics at the Point of Care

Mr. Sandeep Makhijani Regional Director for Asia Pacific (APAC), Truven Health Analytics

This session will explore how healthcare is being transformed though better use of data and analytics. It will also cover the following:

(1) How clinicians are leveraging Clinical Data Analytics for evidence based real-time clinical surveillance to identify patients at risk of an adverse event

(2) How providers at facility and state level are leveraging learning from Clinical Intervention Analysis to improve operational and financial performance across the continuum of care.

11:25am Sensible Data Governance to Enable Healthcare Analytics

Dr. Adam Chee Founder & Chief Advocacy Officer, binaryHealthCare

This presentation covers the concept of Data Management and Governance in the healthcare setting as well as examining the different levels of interoperability and how it affects the quality of data to be used for Analytics purposes.
