Description and CE information:
There’s a lot of buzz about how data and technology will change health care as we know it. Consumers wear devices that track and report biometrics in real time. Cloud-computing technology transforms and translates data from hundreds of sources. Analytical tools organize “big data” into “little data” used at the point of care. Artificial Intelligence technology organizes information and handles certain tasks. The sheer amount of both population-level and patient-level information that can be accessed and utilized through the EHR, benefits claims, health monitoring devices and other technology is already astounding—and growing by the day. The applications of all of this technology to the practice of case management are many. Technologists, developers and data scientists are designing the platforms and tools that providers and payers are using to make care determinations, assess real-time risk and to align workflows based on granular patient insights.
- Distinguish among different types of technology and dispel common myths and misconceptions on how “big data” and advanced technology such as artificial intelligence will be applied in healthcare and to the practice of case management
- Describe how tech development teams are approaching the application of advanced technology & analytics—for utilization management, patient flow, discharge planning, population health, consumer health engagement and other areas across healthcare—and the intersection with case management
- Illustrate ways that new technology and analytical tools will cause case managers to work differently with both their employers and with their clients in the near future and longer term
