Harnessing the Full Power of Data Analytics: A Holistic Approach to Cost Containment
2 p.m. Central, Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017
The healthcare industry has entered a tumultuous new age filled with changing regulations and new opportunities for growth. Payment reform, an expanding population of insured individuals, and a renewed focus on value-based payments have undoubtedly shifted the healthcare landscape in new and innovative ways.
But change comes at a cost, and in the United States, with a new wave of sicker individuals accessing medical care, healthcare costs have reached an all-time high. Already topping $3.2 trillion, by 2025 healthcare spending is estimated to exceed 20% of the gross domestic product.
Join HMS Chief Medical Officer Gary Call, M.D., as he addresses the holistic approach to healthcare reform. In this complimentary, one-hour webinar including a Q&A session, Dr. Call will discuss:
- Healthcare payment landscape
- Large data sets
- Pre-pay claim review
- Holistic approach

The schemes are endless, with significant risks to patients and their loved ones, even resulting in death.
