How TriHealth is Reducing Patient Readmission Rates with Watson
Session ID: WAT-2874
24-Oct-2016 | 08:00 AM – 08:45 AM | South Pacific G
Using hard evidence to make a clinical decision is arguably the most important caveat to the transformation of healthcare in the post Affordable Care Act landscape. This evidence is derived from empirical data that is tested in the most efficient way possible for patients and the healthcare organization. The research institute at TriHealth, a unified health system based in Ohio, successfully leveraged Watson to uncover new evidence that is improving patient outcomes. This data helps decision-making at the point of care, ultimately allowing TriHealth to uncover new readmission indicators, decrease their readmission rate and, in turn, decrease the cost associated with readmissions.

The Role of IBM Datacap in an Enterprise Content Management Modernization Effort
Session ID: ECM-2056
26-Oct-2016 | 04:00 PM – 04:45 PM | Jasmine E
Despite the prevalence of digital content, many organizations remain inundated by paper. To make matters worse, these organizations are too often reliant on obsolete capture and Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies, including multiple capture applications, undocumented sources of content, and extensive customizations developed over many years. Capture is the launching point of the ECM process, so any successful modernization effort should start there. IBM Datacap enables you to consolidate the myriad of capture technologies that have evolved in the ECM infrastructure into a single, unified platform. Learn how Perficient has assisted organizations across a wide range of industries with successful ECM modernization using Datacap.
