Health Leaders Media

Hospitals and health systems must use data analytics to identify their sickest patients and reinvent the way healthcare is delivered in the United States, Atul Gawande, MD, said in his keynote address on Monday at the Healthcare Financial Management Association’s ANI conference in Las Vegas.

“The healthcare delivery system in America is broken, and we are not seeing the value and quality we would expect for the kind of money we are putting in,” said Gawande, a surgeon at Brigham and Women’s in Boston, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, a staff writer for The New Yorker, and the author of three books on how to improve the nation’s healthcare system.
