Today, I presented the attached presentation at TORCH's HITCON 2009.

(full agenda here)

TORCH is the only hospital association in the state [of Texas] that is dedicated solely to the needs of

rural and community hospitals.

Here's the description of my talk:

Business Intelligence and Clinical Transformation


Joseph Bormel, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, Quadramed Corporation, Reston, VA

With an EHR installed, you are expected to improve quality of care, simplify administrative processes and control costs. What do you need to know about workflow and dataflow from your system in order to achieve efficient care management, improve cost performance, and reduce clinical variance and medical errors? How do you bridge the gap between just collecting data and harnessing it for new opportunities? This session will explain what kind of data you need to mine and how you can get the right information to the right person at the right time.

Here is the presentation:

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
