Informatics-Driven Healthcare Quality and Safety Methods

Peter L. Elkin

Professor and Chair, UB Department of Biomedical Informatics & Professor of Internal Medicine

This talk will describe the history of healthcare quality improvement nationally and internationally. We will show how informatics techniques are changing the paradigm of quality improvement and how that has fueled healthcare reform in this country. We will show how mathematics and data analytics make this transition of healthcare from a cottage industry to a systematized process of care.
