Data That Makes You Think

Exploring Healthcare Big Data with Physician Economist Anupam B. Jena, MD, PhD

Did you know there’s a profound difference between seeing and looking? When it comes to leveraging big data for healthcare advancement, this could not be truer. From the economics of physician behavior and the physician workforce to healthcare productivity and medical innovation, Physician Economist Anupam B. Jena, MD PhD leverages “natural experiments” using big data to change the way we see and broaden the way we think.

Alkire, President of Premier, and Dr. Jena will explore how healthcare data that makes you think differently impacts clinical assumptions and the corresponding impact to patient lives.
