Please join the HIMSS National Capital Area (NCA) chapter for an exciting evening discussion on the impact of bringing structure to the unstructured with clinical and health data to improve health outcomes. The event will cover opportunities and challenges in the design, implementation, and management of healthcare data across a multitude of topics including data quality, migration, search, structure, and the adoption of Data Analytics and Business Intelligence to help solve the problems of tomorrow in health by bringing Structure to the Unstructured today. One of the topics to be covered will be ensuring that the quality of the data remains intact as it is migrated from one source to another. Another topic that will also be addressed are issues of coordination of data exchange and interoperability among the private and public sectors, as well as state and local governments.
