Panel: Measurement, Governance and Standardization

Lessons Learned in Setting Measurement, Governance and Standardization Practices Pre and Post Covid-19

How to measure, govern, and deploy data standards across the healthcare industry is a perennial challenge. This has also been challenged by the vast number of new data sets captured since Covid-19. But organizations are racing to establish measuring and reporting criteria on a variety of fronts, including on vaccinations. Join the discussion as we address:
·       The importance of measuring and standardizing data to improve decision making
·       What is the status of data standardization in the healthcare industry
·       How Covid-19 affected data measurement and its implication for standardization and governance
·       What we have learned over the last year, and where we see changes going forward
Gain a better understanding of the current and prospects of a measurement, governance and data standardization.
