Event overview

Health and human services (HHS) agencies have a lot of data at their disposal. But how can they put them to work to drive better outcomes for their constituents? AI-powered analytics is the next-generation approach to unlocking the value of data faster and better. The recent pandemic has highlighted the need to escape from the constraints of legacy approaches and to adopt a robust data and analytics solution that can support all the different stakeholders, empowering them with data-driven insights for proactive decision-making.

Armed with the right kind of advanced analytics systems, governments can leverage the unprecedented power of data science driven by AI to uncover nuances and patterns that couldn’t be previously discovered about their populations to deliver improved outcomes and constituent experience. To learn more about how better use of data science is transforming HHS agencies across the country, join us June 22 at 11am PT/2pm ET for a webinar panel featuring subject matter experts and public officials.

This valuable discussion will include:

  • How to overcome the friction produced by legacy analytics solutions, and to how to adopt a simplified automated solution
  • How to quickly leverage next-generation data science capabilities, including machine learning and AI, to turn data into insights and actions
  • How self-service, unified visual intelligence, cloud applications and other evolving data management technologies offer new ways for HHS agencies to leverage data to support their constituents
