This breakfast session will consider the promise of population health and the benefits planned to come through investment in the big three essentials that will really make it work; better business intelligence, ensuring and trusting a single source of truth and near patient testing. We’ll hear about lessons available from the private sector where the use of unstructured data gleaned from and through social media has driven growth of whole new sectors based on new consumer behaviors and led to the demise of others. We’ll also explore whether some of the pitfalls experienced in other sectors can be avoided or managed better by analytics practitioners in the health and care
