First Midwest Healthcare Business Intelligence (BI) Summit October 27 announced by Lancet Software. Conference for healthcare professionals will explore using business intelligence to mitigate impact of recession, comply with new regulations and implement best practices; regional and international expert speakers announced. Healthcare today is rife with mountains of actionable data waiting to be analyzed and leveraged to find new revenue and improve operating efficiencies for significant cost savings, using a systemic analytical approach to data called Business Intelligence (BI). According to Health Leaders, a health industry publication, more than 150 Provider Organizations across the United States have gone bankrupt or closed in the past 10 years due to financial instability. With the recession predicted to last into 2010, many healthcare organizations will continue to face critical challenges unless they immediately begin to improve their financial performance and operational efficiencies by utilizing a BI solution as part of their business operations strategy. Presenting regional and international experts, The Midwest Healthcare Business Intelligence Summit October 27, 2009, in Minneapolis might be the most important business strategy conference ever dedicated to delivering return on data for healthcare organizations looking for recession survival skills and enhanced decision-making for the long term.
