TechD Announces Big Data Webinar for Healthcare Providers

Interactive presentation to discuss how IBM Cognos improves patient outcomes and reduces expenses for hospitals

Wayne, PA – July 22, 2015.  TechD, a leader in IBM Cognos and Big Data solutions today announced a webinar on how big data can create competitive advantages for hospitals and healthcare institutions.

This 60-minute webinar will be held Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 11:00 AM ET. TechD managing partner and systems architect Marc Martina will present.

“Hospital business and IT executives are faced with numerous challenges related to healthcare reform in general and the Affordable Care Act in particular,” explained Marc Martina. “Even though optimizing workflows and other processes are the main avenues available to executives to address these issues, it’s critical to understand the role that advanced information technology has in bringing these efforts to fruition.  Webinar attendees will learn through real use cases how hospitals are creating competitive advantage with Big Data.”

The webinar will present and discuss how to:

  • Avoid fines and penalties from the Affordable Healthcare Act
  • Lower management, administrative and data center operational costs
  • Reduce capital and operation expenses without compromising core business values
  • Deliver Products and Services per patient needs, operating standards and regulations while minimizing cost and maximizing outcomes
  • Support real-time, event-driven service processes and decision management capabilities
  • Develop performance statistics that can be used for comparisons against other hospitals
  • Improve patient outcomes and overall care
  • How other hospitals are using Big Data for competitive advantage

“Unless you have a solid plan for gathering all of the data required for these kinds of analytics, you’ll probably run into some trouble at first,” noted Martina. “Once you understand your target, you can leverage these technologies for using this data in an organized manner.”
