Data is the New Key Asset: An Interactive Discussion with CDOs

This session puts a spotlight on the challenges all organizations are facing, but that are particularly prevalent in healthcare organizations.  Join the conversation and help to facilitate and encourage change.  We hope by the end of this discussion you will be able to commit to 1-2 things that you can influence in your role over the next year to make progress in more effective management of your data. Discussion points include:  
  • Is it important to develop core technical capabilities in-house or can you rely heavily on consultants and outsourcing?
  • How do you move beyond legacy systems that follow a linear process of development to incorporate more effective methods like agile and sprint?
  • What resources do you need to be able to achieve a global data view to be able to make better decisions?
    • Where do you pull your data from?
    • How do you store it?
    • What is the most effective way to approach data definitions?
  • What are the ethical issues around data and data sharing that you need to be aware of?
  • What can be learned from other industries and companies like Netflix and Coca-Cola about effective data management?
