This presentation explored current issues surrounding how to manage the medical records of the dead, integrating evidence from the field of body donation to inform and guide the discussion on the utilisation of posthumous medical information. It also delivered results from a year-long study on posthumous health care data utility that explored the views of the general population on the use of posthumous medical records, which showed a centrally collated and government-governed resource of posthumous health care data was almost universally supported, with varying caveats around how such a resource should be utilized.

Predictive versus prognostic biomarkers. The task of personalized medicine can be translated in statistical language as constructing predictive biomarker signature(s) that would allow identifying patients with differential treatment response X is prognostic but not predictive X is prognostic and predictive X is predictive but not prognostic X is neither prognostic nor predictive. Taxonomy of data mining methods for subgroup identification • Global outcome modeling • Global treatment effect modeling • Modeling of Individual treatment regimes/rules • Local treatment effect modeling (subgroup search)
To meet this challenge and improve patient satisfaction, health system leaders are taking advantage of technology, such as rounding software, that supports effective communication and drives the type of culture change that boosts both caregiver and patient satisfaction and encourages engagement. Embedding rounding technology into current processes makes rounding better and easier. The correlation between effective, efficient rounding and high patient satisfaction scores is clear. Rounding can and does increase engagement and satisfaction, which in turn leads to higher reimbursement potential. Learn how health system leaders can move from talking about rounding technology to incorporating it into daily workflow.
This article walks through how to run an analytics operation like a business using the following five-question framework:
· Who does the analytics team serve and what are those customers trying to do?
· What services does the analytics team provide to help customers accomplish their goals?
· How does the analytics team know they’re doing a great job and how do they communicate that effectively to the leadership team?
· What is the most efficient way to provide analytics services?
· What is the most effective way to organize?
Population health and value-based payment demand data from multiple sources and multiple organizations. Health systems must access information from across the continuum of care to accurately understand their patients’ healthcare needs beyond the acute-care setting (e.g., reports and results from primary care and specialists). While health system EHRs have a wealth of big-picture data about healthcare delivery (e.g., patient satisfaction, cost, and outcomes), HIEs add the clinical data (e.g., records and transactions) to round out the bigger picture of patient care, as well as the data sharing capabilities needed to disseminate the information. By pairing HIE capability with an advanced analytics platform, a health system can leverage data to improve processes in four important outcomes improvement areas:
· Machine learning
· Professional services
· Data governance

The term CARDIOTHORACIC means "pertaining to the heart and chest." The term comes from the Greek word "kardiakos" which means pertaining to the heart, and "thorac" which is Latin for chest. In general terms, the term refers to the chest. While the term does refer to the chest as a whole, in medicine it is most often used in the context of surgery.
DEFINITION: CARDIAC SURGERY, also called HEART SURGERY, involves surgical operations performed on the heart under to correct life- threatening conditions. The surgery can be either; OPEN HEART SURGERY CLOSED HEART SURGERY or MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY depending on the conditions to be corrected.

Opportunity analysis uses data to identify potential improvement initiatives and quantifies the value of these initiatives—both in terms of patient care benefits and financial impact. This process is an effective way to find unwarranted and costly clinical variation and, in turn, develop strategies to reduce it, improving outcomes and saving costs along the way. Standardizing the opportunity analysis process makes it repeatable and prioritizes actionable opportunities.
Quarterly opportunity analysis should follow four steps:
· Kicking off the analysis by getting analysts together to do preliminary analysis and brainstorm.
· Engaging with clinicians to identify opportunities and, in the process, get clinician buy in.
· Digging deeper into the suggested opportunities to prioritize those that offer the greatest benefits.
· Presenting findings to the decision makers.
