Data-driven healthcare delivery
Dr. Joel Kahn, Chief Medical Officer for First Line Software was the presenter for a session titled: Data-Driven Healthcare
– How to Use Data to Improve the Quality of Healthcare. He spoke about the challenges of using healthcare data in a meaningful way.
While healthcare is a data-driven industry, there is very little standardization or consistency of terminology and concepts across institutions and frequently within a single institution. Dr. Kahn shared steps healthcare organizations can take to standardize their data and extract valuable insights that can be used to improve the quality of their healthcare delivery.
“During the conference, Dr. Joel Kahn and I met with many attendees to discuss the specific digital transformation processes they are currently focusing on at their healthcare institutions,” commented First Line Software expert. “Our company has built up significant expertise in healthcare technology from our work with many hospitals and research organizations in the US, Canada, Australia and EU. Expertise that can be applied to healthcare technology projects for organizations in South Africa.”
