Health Care Data Matters

Healthcare Data Matters

Because Patients Matter.

When care teams can unlock clinical data and see the possibilities that exist with that data, it’s possible to save more patient lives.

Healthcare Data Matters is an online forum of healthcare professionals, innovators and leaders dedicated to fostering conversations and sharing patient stories among the healthcare community via podcasts, webinars and online discussions.

Through these communications, we facilitate shared learning opportunities that will enable healthcare professionals to set a new standard of patient-centered, data-driven care.

Follow us to join in on the conversation and learn more about upcoming webinars, events, guest speakers, and pressing topics in healthcare.

Gears in the mind

Become A Part of the Conversation

Each month, a new subject matter expert will present a challenge and a solution in a 30-minute lunch-and-learn webinar. An interactive Q & A between peers will follow, giving the audience an opportunity to interface directly with the subject matter expert.

All webinars will be recorded and available in both an on-demand replay and a condensed podcast for a quick knowledge refresher and easy sharing.

And, Healthcare Data Matters social channels will provide an additional opportunity to discuss the cases presented and foster online connections and conversations.


What makes Healthcare Data Matters unique is the opportunity to interface directly with change-makers. Hear first-person accounts of how data is being used to make a difference for their patients -- across health systems, regions, medical specialties or even professional roles within the healthcare industry. This diverse forum of voices includes hospital leaders, technology innovators, medical specialists and others who are sharing real-world challenges and the solutions they have found to solving them.

To be both accessible and inclusive, Healthcare Data Matters takes place online, in a way that is unlimited by geography or access.

No invitation is needed to participate. The only requirement is a desire to advance the art and science of medicine through utilization of patient data.

Those are just two of the questions that the periop medicine and data science teams at UAB set out to answer. Join Dr. Berkowitz, Dr. Melvin, and Dr. Godwin as they explain how they achieved their goals by accessing real-time continuous data and collecting data for retrospective analysis.
