Challenges in Public Health Data Analytics in Research and Clinical Practice Part I

Monday, November 2, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
The principal promise of electronic health records was that the data generated would help improve patient care and consequently improve health outcomes. Ideally, this would be true not just in clinical care, but in public and population health as well. This session explores various challenges in turning all of this EHR data into actionable insight that can improve care quality on the way to improving public health practice.
Session Objectives: Discuss how public health can leverage EHR data to improve health care quality
