Session to Spotlight the Role of Big Data in Providing Personalized Care
Ann Arbor, MI June 13, 2013Truven Health AnalyticsTM will address the role of big data in healthcare at  America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2013.  The session, presented by Truven Health Analytics senior vice president of health analytics Bob Kelley, will cover new and emerging trends in healthcare analytics that will enable personalized interventions similar to those currently provided in financial, retail, and social networking markets.

The annual AHIP conference, which will take place June 12-14, 2013 at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, brings together the top minds in health plan management from across the country.

Truven Health’s program, Leverage Big Data to Improve Population Health Management, will take place on June 14, 2013 at 7:30-8:30 AM.  The session will outline the new ways big data is being deployed in healthcare to improve population health, reduce fraud and waste, and lower costs.  It will also draw on the recent Truven Health Analytics perspective Can Big Data Save a Life?, which discusses specific big data initiatives that could be used to improve patient care today.

“Integrating and analyzing the unprecedented variety, volume, and velocity of data across the continuum of care is helping us to create real-world solutions that move healthcare forward in a time of extraordinary change, ” said Kelley.  “Every day, these solutions are improving patient care, managing population health, reducing costs and waste, preventing problems before they materialize, and giving our clients a dynamic, competitive edge.”

Truven Health Analytics will also be presenting sessions on Fraud, Waste, and Abuse—Combining Best Practices and New Innovations for Health Plans and How Do You Engage Health Consumers in a Fragmented Marketplace? at AHIP Institute.  The Truven Health Analytics team will be on-hand throughout the event at booth #135.  For details on the full AHIP event schedule, click here.
