“The health and human service field has a great deficit in tools that facilitate standardized practices and better decision support,” said OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer, Monica E.

The growing use of cloud computing has made analysis of large data sets and improved decision support a reality in many systems. This session will be an eye-opener for industry executives nationwide.”
“Using Cloud Computing & Big Data For Better Care Management Decisions,” which will include perspectives from leading payer and provider organizations currently using “big data,” will also examine how the powerful technology combination is being used nationwide to improve consumer care through facilitation of case manager decision support – providing cost efficiency, risk management, and data protection.
