Predictive Modeling in health care is an analytics process involving assessment and adjustment of risk and behavior, applied to a given population based upon available data for purposes of stratifying that population according to their future probabilities of incurring a given outcome or behavior. The purpose of Predictive Modeling is to risk stratify a population to identify individual opportunities for intervention or action before the projected outcome has occurred.
As pressures on health plans and providers magnify to improve clinical, quality, operational, and financial performance; the demand for and role of predictive analytics within healthcare organizations continue to expand.
Prediction of risk for hospital readmissions, involved with initiatives to identify and intervene with applicable individuals at-risk, is emerging as a significant activity, despite various implementation challenges. Risk adjustment initiatives involved with emerging provider payment structures (such as value based purchasing, bundled payments, accountable care arrangements and more) that have been advanced by health reform and marketplace pressures require increased application of predictive analytics. Predictive Modeling has also emerged as a leading tool in the growing fight to defeat health care fraud in the Medicare, Medicaid and Commercial arenas.
The demand for advancing and managing Big Data, along with enhanced data mining to drive these and other initiatives also requires increased investment of resources. Furthermore, as Predictive Modeling in health care matures as a field, exciting developments continuously emerge with respect to available tools and technologies; applications in new and expanded functions and settings; refinements of techniques and data repositories; and external forces.
The National Predictive Modeling Summit provides the leading forum on predictive analytics applied to key health care functions, populations and settings, and will fully address the impact of these developments to best position attending professionals and their organizations for the future.
The Sixth National Predictive Modeling Summit provides nationally renowned keynote speakers covering a wide range of expertise applicable to the field of predictive modeling, in an innovative hybrid conference format, offering attendees the choice of in-person or Internet attendance.
Presentations during the Summit will provide the most current insights, information, experiences and solutions available regarding the role of and use of Predictive Modeling in the above key topics and much more. The Summit also provides the ideal networking opportunity for professionals throughout all industry sectors to interact, develop future relationships, discuss shared experiences and meet key contacts.
