Dr. Muhammad Zahid, VP of Clinical Operations of Alere Analytics, to Address Population Health in Accountable Communities at the National Forum on Data & Analytics

Alere Analytics, an Alere subsidiary specializing in analytics and clinical decision support (CDS) technology, today announced that VP of Clinical Operations, Dr. Muhammad Zahid will participate in an industry panel that highlights the importance of population health management in the current healthcare landscape at the 2014 eHealth Initiative National Forum on Data & Analytics. The conference, which is being held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C. on May 20-21, will address how analytics can be leveraged to more efficiently manage clinical, financial and administrative decisions. During the conference, Alere Analytics will be showcasing the Company’s suite of provider and payer solutions at booth #7.

In Dr. Zahid’s panel discussion, he will address key challenges and opportunities of data use, integration, and quality improvement when utilizing clinical decision support to effectively manage populations. This is especially relevant in today’s healthcare practice, which is transitioning to a value-based system where reimbursement depends on meeting federal quality standards, and patient satisfaction continues to increase in importance. For risk-bearing organizations such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the ability to segment patient populations and identify high-risk groups is essential for managing costs and maintaining the highest quality of care.
