Respond, Recover, Reimagine … Health Catalyst is doing the same in the world of the new normal. For all of its heartbreaking tragedies, COVID-19 is also driving changes that will benefit the world and humanity. The future of healthcare is suddenly here, with its focus on data sharing, technological pushes forward, and virtual work wherever possible.

Social distancing aside, our ability to interact with one another through virtual video settings avoids the constraints and environmental impact of physical travel, along with time efficiencies and financial savings.

We are excited to embrace the adventure and challenge of these changes by reimagining the Healthcare Analytics Summit™ (HAS) 2020 as a virtual format that will be unlike any other healthcare conference you may have attended, virtual or otherwise. HAS 20 Virtual takes place September 1-3, 2020 with shorter half-day sessions, optimized for this year’s unique circumstances.

Analytics in the New Normal

We’ve all seen COVID-19 disrupt our systems, processes, and assumptions, forcing healthcare organizations worldwide to use data and analytics to predict and execute almost limitless clinical, financial, and operational scenarios. And those who’ve handled this unprecedented situation the best have used data and analytics more deeply and critically than ever before. We think it’s important to share those stories and best practices with you in the smartest, safest way possible.

HAS 20 Virtual will feature speakers who’ve battled COVID-19 in the trenches as well as other speakers adjusting and pivoting for the new normal we are all anticipating. Breakout sessions will cover a wide perspective of analytics use cases and case studies covering all four phases of COVID-19 impact: prepare, respond, recover, and plan. This year’s summit will keep the high standards and unique elements you’ve come to expect during HAS, from world-class keynote speakers to the individual connections of the Analytics Walkabout and Braindate.

Below is an overview of what we have planned, with many more details still to come.
