LOWELL, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Alere Analytics, an Alere subsidiary specializing in analytics and clinical decision support (CDS) technology, today announced that Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder, Dr. Fauzia Khan will lead a webinar discussion on April 2, 2014 at 1:00 PM that highlights how population analytics can help improve outcomes for patients, providers and payers. Dr. Khan’s webinar is a part of Population Health Alliance’s (PHA) complimentary Accountable Care Organization (ACO) & Provider Webinar Series titled, “How Population Health Improvement Can Benefit Providers and ACOs.”

The PHA Webinar Series offers participants informative and insightful guidance on how population health strategies are transforming the health care paradigm as the industry moves towards the measurement and management of integrated delivery systems, such as ACOs.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Fauzia Khan, a noted speaker on population health and analytics, kick off our inaugural ACO and Provider Webinar series,” says Fred S. Goldstein, interim executive director and chair of the board, Population Health Alliance. “This webinar series is one of the offerings PHA has for the ACOs and provider community, a crucial segment for the expansion and implementation of population health principles, as we emphasize the development of meaningful measures for consumer and provider engagement. The PHA Forum 2014, our annual conference in December, will showcase our research work on this area.”

In Dr. Khan’s webinar, titled, “How Population Analytics Can Help Improve Health & Outcomes,” she will address how population-level analytics can assist providers and ACOs to more effectively manage chronic conditions and ultimately improve care quality. By utilizing real-time clinical analytics, providers have a comprehensive view of their entire population data landscape, and thus are able to identify those with the greatest noncompliance risk and the most actionable clinical opportunities for improvement. Data interoperability is also key to accessing all patient information in real-time in order to effectively manage entire populations. By freeing data from long-existing silos and sharing it across the continuum of care, more informed decisions can be made by healthcare providers, leading to improved outcomes for patient populations.

Title: “How Population Analytics Can Help Improve Health & Outcomes”

Speaker: Dr. Fauzia Khan, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder, Alere Analytics

Population Analytics Webinar Synopsis: As the healthcare industry continues to make strides to better understand not just the health of individuals, but entire populations, there has been significant progress in managing chronic conditions and improving care quality. The heart of the issue is interoperability: information needs to be shared across the continuum of care, whether that data is delivered through an HIE, EHR, or a smart device. Once patient data is accurately captured and widely available, we can make better healthcare decisions. In time, this will close crucial care gaps, provide greater visibility, and accelerate processes that lead to better outcomes.
