Alere Analytics, a Lowell company specializing in analytics and clinical decision support technology, said chief medical officer Fauzia Khan will be giving a speech Friday on analytics and health IT as part of the Accountable Care Organization Summit in Washington, D.C.
Khan’s keynote address “will demonstrate how real-time, evidence-based decision support and analytics can empower clinicians to make informed decisions about their patients and patient populations at the point of care,’’ Alere Analytics said in a press release. “In addition, Dr. Khan will examine how predictive analytics enables ACOs (Accountable Care Organizations) to identify and treat high-risk patients, improve patient care and avoid costly re-admissions. Following the keynote at 9:20 a.m., Dr. Khan will moderate a panel of industry leaders in the ACO market who will discuss real case study examples of successfully implementing predictive analytics for population health management.’’
Alere Analytics’ customers include hospitals, health care providers, payers, electronic health records companies, systems integrators, and government entities. Alere Analytics, formerly DiagnosisOne, is a subsidiary of Alere Inc., a Waltham-based company that looks to enable individuals to take charge of their health at home through the merger of rapid diagnostics and health information solutions.
