Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Sean Benson, Vice President of Innovation, Clinical Solutions, will participate in a panel discussion on data analytics at Health Datapalooza 2015 in Washington D.C. The session, “Innovation in Action: From Algorithms to Clinical Change,” will take place on June 1 from 1:45-3 p.m. and explore how advanced analytics can lead to change at a clinical level.
During the session, Benson will discuss the work underway in Wolters Kluwer’s Innovation lab focused on developing decision support technology that harnesses patient data and clinical knowledge to improve sepsis care. The project is part of the company’s goal of addressing disparities in clinical IT systems—a problem that often forces clinicians to make decisions based on fragmented information.
Benson will address the critical issues surrounding siloed medical data and how bridging the information divide can improve patient care, which speaks to the panel’s culminating topic on developing solutions for payers and providers using big data. Joining Benson on the panel, which will be moderated by Nick Dawson, MHA, Executive Director of Innovation at Johns Hopkins Sibley Hospital, will be Basit Chaudhry, M.D., Ph.D., Founder and CEO of Tuple Health.
“The challenges created by the rapid growth of medical data also present some of the greatest opportunities for innovation,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer, Clinical Solutions. “Data analytics is at the heart of the work underway in our Innovation Lab and we are pleased for this opportunity to share our knowledge with key industry leaders. Developing tools to better leverage the totality of our ever-expanding knowledge is the key to revolutionizing healthcare.”
