Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) continues to be a severe and costly program for healthcare organizations that affects quality, outcomes and costs. One of the major causes is the nonexistence of a data supported infrastructure or tools for stakeholders to guide and implement best practices across the continuum of ASCVD care. As we focus on strengthening big data architecture for value-based healthcare delivery under the framework of population health management (PHM), we must leverage digital solutions and learnings from artificial intelligence to help inform and guide decisions. In this presentation, we discuss how to maximize data and digital capacities to accelerate paradigm shift in current siloed management approaches to one that optimally moves the needle on CVD population health goals.
