What’s the Right Approach to Data Analytics in an ACO Shared Savings Program?

At the HIMSS 2016 Annual conference, Shahid Shah from Netspective Media had a chance to talk with Souvik Das, Principal Data Scientist and Big Data Architect at Sutter Health at the SAP booth to talk about Souvik’s healthcare analytics ACO work at Sutter Health.

In this video Shahid and Souvik talk about how a healthcare organization should prioritize their healthcare analytics efforts. They also talk about the need to work on analytics that improve patient care, increase revenue, and increase efficiency. Plus, they highlight how it’s not enough to focus on the technical aspects of your analytics, but you need to also focus on the organizational aspects. Souvik also highlights the key concept that “If you’re going to fail, fail small and fail early.” Finally he talks about the need to have buy in at the executive level or the project will fail.
