Everyone is talking about using analytics to improve healthcare, collecting data on blood pressure, insulin levels, heart rate and other indicators. However, health plan CareSource not only is analyzing that traditional medical data but is using analytics to draw a more complete picture of a patient and the life factors -- lifestyle, home life, and work -- that shape their health. The goal is to prevent recurrence of medical issues and readmission to the hospital.

Bob Gladden, vice president for CareSource's Center for Analytics, and his team are taking creative approaches to healthcare analytics in an effort to keep their clients healthier in the long run. Gladden joins All Analytics Radio to discuss how organizations can use analytics to search for healthcare solutions that range beyond what we have grown to view as standard health data.

In this show you will learn:

  • About the impact that unnecessary recurrence and readmission have on patients, providers, insurers, and the public
  • How providers and insurers can utilize data analytics to have a positive impact on patient lives while delivering efficiencies throughout the healthcare system
  • What types of life factors have a significant impact on patient health and how data can identify possible solutions
  • About the unexpected role that healthcare analytics can have in shaping public policy, particularly for those patients most in need
