As the vice president and chief clinical officer for Providence St. Joseph, a $25 billon system, Amy Compton-Phillips is responsible for improving health, care and value outcomes delivered by the 51 hospitals, 800+ clinics, and 115,000 caregivers.
In this opening keynote, Dr. Compton-Phillips discusses the critical need to more easily digest the proliferating volumes of data, convert it to usable formats, and make it simpler for physicians to use to provide better care. That’s where AI and machine learning come in.
By looking at vast arrays of data sources and putting them together to aid decision making, these technologies simplify our ability to implement knowledge and accelerate new ways to have more meaningful conversations with patients and make life better.
To that end, in this age where we need credible, rigorous data and the power of story to create understanding about the human impact, Dr. Compton-Phillips will also explain her belief that one simple rule should guide healthcare decisions: No stories without data, no data without stories.
