Health System Innovations: Measuring Impact from Digital Deployments

September 21 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Join MATTER and AVIA for a look at the impact of new technologies and digital initiatives in health systems.

Join MATTER and AVIA for the third event in the Health System Innovations series, focused on how health systems are measuring the impact of new technologies and digital initiatives.

Measuring the impact of digital health solutions has long been one of the toughest challenges health system leaders face. Often, health systems have a difficult time finding and tracking the data they need to prove ROI for a new solution, parsing out the value of the technology compared to the value of alternative initiatives that are solving the same problem — and knowing what’s at stake if no action is taken. It’s essential to be able to accurately forecast and report on the outcomes of digital deployments. Health systems are laser-focused on showing the effect of their digital initiatives, so as an entrepreneur, it’s essential to be able to accurately forecast and report on the outcomes.

In this session, we’ll hear insights on how digital health leaders are measuring the impact of their work, what matters to health systems as they assess the potential value of digital initiatives and tried and true lessons from health systems.
