Orthopedic Service Line Optimization: How to Use Big Data for Your Value-Based Purchasing Decisions

Date(s) - - 12:00AM CT

In the ever changing healthcare environment, clinical outcomes are more important than ever for hip and knee arthroplasty reimbursement. Because of this hospitals are being forced to change how their surgical departments are monitored and measured in order to be successful. However the data needed to help fully understand and optimize the choices when it comes to implant selection resides in many different formats and locations making it almost impossible to utilize and analyze in a meaningful way. Join MD Buyline, IBM Watson, and the American Joint Replacement Registry as they each discuss how they are each collecting and processing big data to help hospitals and health systems make the best choices when it comes to orthopedic implants in order to improve patient outcomes, quality and cost in the new era of healthcare. The webinar is hosted by Becker's Hospital Review on Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. CDT.
