HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Geneia, a company of experienced change agents creating analytic and technology solutions to improve healthcare, today announced that two of the organization's leaders will be featured at upcoming SAS Analytics events for business and analytics executives.
Each year, SAS brings thousands of analytics experts and C-suite and business executives together for inspirational presentations about the leading edge of data and analytics applications and deep-dive sessions on such topics as data mining and Hadoop. Avi Mukherjee, Chief Technology Officer, will demonstrate how Geneia's advanced analytics and insights platform delivers meaningful and actionable population health analytics and allows for configurable business logic at the SAS Analytics 2015 Conference on October 27 in Las Vegas. Heather Lavoie, President & Chief Operating Officer, will discuss how machine learning is helping make sense of increasing amounts of healthcare data and enabling highly individualized care at the SAS Premier Business Leadership Series on October 28 also in Las Vegas.
"Those of us who have spent our careers in healthcare are simultaneously excited and challenged by the explosion of available healthcare data," said Heather Lavoie, Geneia's President & Chief Operating Officer. "For the first time, we have the opportunity to improve health status, healthcare decision-making, and ultimately longevity, but only if we are able to convert all of this data into a consumable format. Machine learning enables us to do this quickly, cost-effectively, and in a continuous manner."
"Candidly, I have great empathy for physician and hospital leaders who are tasked with population health but do not have ready access to an analytics and insights platform," added Avi Mukherjee, Geneia's Chief Technology Officer. "The escalating demands of value-based contracts, the proliferation of data, and the need to simultaneously improve individual and population health require a leading-edge analytics solution."
