Deploying Predictive Analytics in Healthcare

This webinar will focus on the technical and practical aspects of creating and deploying predictive analytics. We have seen an emerging need for predictive analytics across clinical, operational, and financial domains. One pitfall we’ve seen with predictive analytics is that while many people with access to free tools can develop predictive models, many organizations fail to provide a sufficient infrastructure in which the models are deployed in a consistent, reliable way and truly embedded into the analytics environment. We will survey techniques that are used to get better predictions at scale. This webinar won’t be an intense mathematical treatment of the latest predictive algorithms, but will rather be a guide for organizations that want to embed predictive analytics into their technical and operational workflows.

Topics will include:

Reducing the time it takes to develop a model
Automating model training and retraining
Feature engineering
Deploying the model in the analytics environment
Deploying the model in the clinical environment

Humber River Hospital and GE Healthcare Building First Hospital Command Centre for Quality Healthcare in Canada | Business Wire

Humber River Hospital and GE Healthcare Building First Hospital Command Centre for Quality Healthcare in Canada | Business Wire

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Humber River Hospital is underway with building a state-of-the-art,

digitally-advanced “Command Centre” that uses complex algorithms,

predictive analytics and cutting-edge engineering to target improved

clinical, operational and patient outcomes. Designed and built with GE

Healthcare Partners, the centre will open end of 2017 to help enable the

hospital to meet its objective of safe, high-quality and efficient

patient care delivery.

The heart of the 4,500 square-foot Command Centre is a GE Wall of

Analytics that processes real-time data from multiple source systems

across the hospital. The system applies advanced and predictive

analytics and provides a continuous “read out” alerting staff to

everything from delayed patient care activity, unbalanced physician and

staff workload and unusual situations that may correlate to increased

risk of patient harm. This information provides real-time decision

support so staff can prioritize patient care activities and discharges,

make short-term staffing decisions and mitigate potential bottlenecks

before they occur.

Command Centre staff will impact day to day performance through several

dozen Interactions, Procedures and Operating Mechanisms that have been

thoughtfully designed in conjunction with front line caregivers, support

staff, physicians and executives.

“The Command Centre is being built to improve the patient experience,

enable caregivers to spend more time with patients and less time

organizing care and enable staff to make care decisions easier and

faster,” said Barb Collins, president and CEO of Humber River Hospital.

“We want to continue investing in the latest technologies and smart

hospital solutions to provide the best clinical solutions and hospital

experience to our community.”

The Command Centre will be funded through ongoing business investment,

private donations and efficiency savings since Humber River Hospital

expects to be able to care for more patients for the same or less cost.

“This is the first command centre of its type in Canada,” said John

Flannery, president and CEO of GE Healthcare. “Using real-time data and

analytics will help clinicians and administrators make more informed

decisions for a better patient experience and deliver improved clinical

and operational outcomes.”

Humber River Hospital is already recognized as the first fully-digital

hospital in North America and the Command Centre is a continuation of

their digital journey toward becoming a high reliability hospital.

“The Humber River Hospital Command Centre features several ‘firsts’

including the ability to identify delayed care delivery activities that

could impact patient outcomes and length of stay,” said Andrew Day,

principal of GE Healthcare Partners.

“The air traffic control concept was actually envisioned with GE

Healthcare well in advance of the opening of our new hospital in 2015

and now it is becoming a reality,” explained Peter Bak, CIO, Humber

River Hospital. “The Command Centre perfectly combines our clinical

expertise, advanced digital infrastructure and culture of continuous

improvement with GE Healthcare’s advanced analytics, technical

capability and deep understanding of hospital workflows to create an

exciting and transformational system for our patients, clinicians, staff

and the wider community.”
