Harnessing Data Analytics to Address Patient Care Gaps

Stephanie Kute and Chad Konchak delivered an Express Workshop on data analytics for medical devices at the MD&M East Educational Conference in June. Their talk, titled Harnessing Data Analytics in the Design and Development of Medical Devices to Address Patient Care Gaps,” focused on emerging applications of “big data” analytics to build smart devices, predict and prevent adverse outcomes, and deliver personalized healthcare.

Topics included:

  • Coupling wearable and home-monitoring device data with Electronic Health Record data to better inform physicians
  • Using predictive analytics to identify and target at-risk populations and prevent adverse clinical outcomes
  • Characterizing at-risk patient populations to tailor intervention strategies that improve patient experience while reducing costs
