IMG_1053The landscape of America’s healthcare industry is radically and rapidly evolving. Due to the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the emergence of new technologies and a movement towards electronic health records, the way that Americans receive and pay for healthcare services is undergoing vast change.

These changes and the opportunities they’re creating for businesses, were the focus of a panel discussion at the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference. The “Healthcare Analytics and Big Data” panel featured Cormac Miller, EVP Corporate Strategy at theAdvisory Board Company, Farzad Mostashari, Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and Ryan Schwarz, Managing Director at NaviMed Capital, discussing the trends impacting healthcare today.

The Corporate Growth, Capital Style editorial team was able to capture the panel on video. In this first part of the panel, our experts discuss the macro issues affecting health care today, such as Electronic Health Records (EHR) and the benefits of using data to better predict patient outcomes.

Check back in the coming weeks for more coverage of the “Healthcare Analytics and Big Data” panel, and additional Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference videos featuring exciting keynote speakers, such as Len Forkas and Ted Leonsis.
