The Data Journey: Getting to Value

The amount of data available to businesses and consumers is growing rapidly. The data revolution has transformed how health care is delivered and consumed, providing doctors with the tools they need to improve clinical decision making, enabling health care systems to focus on delivering value rather than volume, energizing employers and purchasers to design value-based insurance products, and empowering consumers to make informed decisions about their care.
The key to these efforts, however, is not just data, but data that are meaningful and actionable. This session highlighted the efforts of AF4Q communities to build sophisticated resources that are providing access to comprehensive data sets, driving the transformation of delivery and payment systems.
