Welcome to "A Healthcare Podcast" by VirtualHealth, an ongoing discussion on topics we feel are making a big impact on our individual and collective health. We engage with guests and listeners to explore and help clarify complex health care matters through active conversation.
How does technology connect providers with their data to make a positive impact on an individual's health? Remle Newton-Dame of New York City Health + Hospitals joins us again for part 2 of our discussion concerning healthcare providers' access to the data they need to improve patient health outcomes. Technology such as data visualization packages and electronic medical records enables healthcare professionals, as well as individual patients, to understand large amounts of information about their exact health questions. Remle expands on these ideas, and more, as she discusses technology's role in collecting and interpreting health data.
How do public health, epidemiology, and population health intersect at the local level to impact the health outcomes of patients? Remle Newton-Dame of New York City Health + Hospitals joins us this week to discuss her work at "The Data Core" in the Office of Population Health, a team responsible for providing innovative analytics to transform care delivery. The Data Core touches risk targeting, access to care, depression, care management, outreach to the uninsured, and support of incarcerated populations. Their mission is to use data to create actionable knowledge at the program, site, and system levels.
