CoCENTRIX and Microsoft recently presented the keynote address at the 2012 OPEN MINDS Technology & Informatics Institute in Baltimore. Kevin Dolan, Industry Market Director of HHS at Microsoft, followed up the keynote with a poignant blog article about keynote and big data initiatives in HHS.
Below is an excerpt from his post.
“I had the recent chance to attend the 2012 OPEN MINDS Technology & Informatics Institute in Baltimore, which brings together leaders in health and human services (HHS) to discuss best practices for using health information technologies for strategic planning, improved service delivery and reducing the cost of care for the patient groups these leaders primarily serve, including patients with mental health issues, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. A major discussion point at the conference was how we can use advances in cloud computing and Big Data as a way to connect relevant new data, enabling healthcare professionals to make more informed decisions about their patients’ health, ultimately improving health outcomes.”
