We are in the midst of a data-driven transformation of health care. Like never before, applications of data in evidence-based practices are at the center of reshaping health care delivery by improving quality and controlling costs. This has led to many complicated new questions. If you are a leader in a health care delivery system, an entrepreneur in health care, or a health services researcher, participating in AcademyHealth’s Health Data Policy and Strategy Orientation (HDPSO) will give you practical knowledge intended to inform your institution’s data-driven transformation strategy. You will gain insights on the trends in federal policies and programs as well as valuable information and tips to help meet your organization’s information strategy needs. 

Professionals in emerging data-centric roles within health care systems are guiding the executive decision-making in health care business models, value-based payment systems, and care delivery approaches. Individuals in these roles are increasingly required to adapt to the ever-changing data landscape and keep apprised of the health data policies that affect data collection, governance, access and utilization. Health care leaders in these positions will leave AcademyHealth’s Health Data Policy and Strategy Orientation (HDPSO) with the skills and practical knowledge they need to perform their jobs successfully.

HDPSO ensures opportunities for dialogue and small group discussion with practitioners in the field and peers who are experiencing similar challenges and opportunities. Attendees will hear from health policy experts, government program leaders, data users, entrepreneurs who have deep knowledge in data use, and data experts from technology and health care applications fields. They will participate in interactive panels and discussions within an intimate setting. Registration is capped at 50 participants to ensure an intimate setting and deep interaction with expert faculty.  

Registration opens in June.
