CTG’s Joseph Eberle and Dr. John Gillespie Co-Present at the Hospital & Physician Relations Executive Summit
DALLAS, TX – February 23, 2015
Healthcare data analytics experts John Gillespie, MD, MMM, Chief Medical Officer at Palladian Health, and Clinical Associate Professor, State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and Joseph Eberle, Managing Director, Data Analytics, CTG, will co-present “Using Data Analytics to Improve Care Valuation, Management and Outcomes” at the Hospital & Physician Relations Executive Summit, March 1 to 3, at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale, Arizona.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases and conditions affect roughly half of all U.S. adults (117 million) and account for 84 percent of healthcare costs. It is a national epidemic – yet many of these diseases can be controlled and prevented if physicians obtain the right data at the right time for the right patient. Dr. Gillespie and Eberle describe how a 450-member physician organization in Western New York and CTG worked together in using data analytics to improve management, delay disease progression, and promote proactive care interventions for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and five of its comorbidities.
The speakers examine the process, techniques, and analytical tools used to identify at-risk patients and improve targeted interventions, noting the challenges of integrating data from disparate sources and the adoption of a “no data left behind” policy. Key clinical findings uncovered presented significant opportunities for improving care quality and decreasing costs. Attendees will hear data analysis lessons learned and efforts applied to other medical conditions.
