At Health Catalyst, we are committed to being your partner for proven solutions. We are honored to share that the following innovative organizations will present at HIMSS to share their success in leveraging data and analytics to improve health outcomes.


In the presentation, “Closing Health Equity Disparity Gaps With AI-Enhanced Health Technology,” Yuchen Zhang, Senior Data Scientist at ChristianaCare, will share how her organization identified critical predictors of health outcome disparities.

To understand where differences existed and effectuate more significant health equity, Zhang and her team implemented standardized data collection and leveraged a robust data analytics platform to quantify health equity outcomes and identify which factors contributed to health gaps.
