10 must-reads on data analytics

Data analytics are increasingly used by hospitals and health systems to bring healthcare's enormous datasets into focus. While the technology has broad applications in healthcare — from tracking patient outcomes to monitoring pharmacy performance — many hospitals and health systems have been slow to integrate data analytics solutions. Barriers include the input of flawed data, a lack of executive buy-in, growing concerns over patient data privacy and ownership, and ineffective solutions that fail to serve the end user. 

This E-book contains 10 articles that describe not only the many potential advantages of data analytics in healthcare, but also best practices for selecting and deploying an analytics solution. As several health IT experts agreed in one article, "The potential of using analytics to improve efficiency and outcomes is limited only by physician creativity."

 10 Must-Reads on Critical Care

Critical care is distinguished in U.S. hospitals for a number of reasons, including the complexity of patients, evolution of technology and growing use among older adults. The costs and risks associated with caring for high-acuity patients make critical care settings vulnerable places within any hospital. These units are more susceptible to decisions about staffing, technology and models of care.

This e-book, 10 Must-Reads on Critical Care, contains 10 articles that examine the use of modern technology in ICUs, such as AI and robots, and how distinct models of critical care delivery influence patient outcomes and staff wellbeing. Articles also touch on infection control in critical care settings, medical care that reduces ICU use and ICU rotations.
