This year’s 2017 NC HIMSS Workshop, Reception, and Winter Dinner which was held at the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge was a great success! We had an expert panel focusing on Data Analytics – Exploring the Big Topics, and interactive participation between the panelists and the audience. Following the panel there was a networking reception, Dinner and amazing keynote presentation by Roy Lewis the Senior Administrator of Patient Access Services at Vidant Medical Center.
The topic for this year’s dinner included Using Big Data in Healthcare, Predictive Modeling, Self-Service Reporting, and Analytics: What’s Next? The panelists were selected for their experience with these popular topics and inclusion of real-world examples in their presentations. Martin Sizemore, Chief Data Officer at Wake Forest Baptist Health, moderated the panel. Click here for the master presentation.
