Navigating Uncertainty: What’s in Your Analytics Playbook?

Webinar recorded July 22nd, 2020. Hosted by Pam Arlotto and Susan Irby

Uncertainty brings opportunity for change. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, healthcare leaders showed remarkable agility and worked collaboratively to deploy new virtual care models, innovate solutions to supply chain issues, and evaluate declines in revenue. As the healthcare industry continues to traverse through uncharted waters, analytics has become an essential navigational tool.

Conventional wisdom and the playbooks of the past may no longer be relevant. Decision makers must deal with uncertainty and think differently. Rather than relying on historic score cards to report “what happened”, leaders are using advanced analytics to explore “what-if” scenarios and model “what will happen” and “how do we make it happen”.

Decision makers should not defer this work to data scientists. They must play a central role in determining the problems to be solved, exploring what and how to analyze, and defining what the numbers mean to key decisions. Healthcare operations, financial, clinical, and business leaders must be able to engage, communicate and act using data driven insights.

During this webinar we examine:

  • The Time Is Now for Advanced Analytics
  • Five Game Changers for the Healthcare Decision Maker
  • Continuing the Conversation: The Last Mile

Using health IT to get healthcare stakeholders working together

Pam Arlotto, a past president of HIMSS and a healthcare consultant with nearly 40 years of experience, has a unique perspective on the healthcare industry’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. While the industry has made great strides in improving performance, the pandemic is showing that our data are still too siloed. The silver lining is that the pandemic is showing that when we break down regulatory and cost barriers, we can apply a tech solution like telehealth to a very specific problem like quarantining COVID-19 patients.

HIMSS cancels conference due to coronavirus

Pam Arlotto was interviewed about the HIMSS20 conference cancellation due to the coronavirus in the March 5th issue of Modern Healthcare.

Article by Jessica Kim Cohen.

The cancellation could have a significant financial impact not just on HIMSS, but also on participating companies.

“This is going to have a huge economic impact, for both big companies and small companies,” said Pam Arlotto, president and CEO of healthcare consultancy Maestro Strategies. “For a lot of people, this is where they touch base with their customers and do a lot of their business development.”

This will be the first year Arlotto hasn’t attended the conference since 1982.

“I wish we had all known this about a week ago, ” she said of the cancellation. “It probably is the right thing to do, but I think a lot of us were going to go and risk it.”
