4:15 Interactive Breakout Discussion Groups

Concurrent breakout discussion groups are interactive, guided discussions hosted by a facilitator or set of co-facilitators to discuss some of the key issues presented earlier in the day’s sessions. Delegates will join a table of interest and become an active part of the discussion at hand. To get the most out of this interactive session and format, please come prepared to share examples from your work, vet some ideas with your peers, be a part of group interrogation and problem solving, and, most importantly, participate in active idea-sharing.

  • How are data from disparate sources being incorporated into predictive models in an integrative fashion?
  • What non-traditional types of data are being utilized in predictive models, and which are proving to hold the most promise in identification/stratification for care management intervention?
  • Based on modeling the complexity of the system, what is the data that should be integrated and what is its potential relationship and value to the analysis/prediction?
  • Are traditional approaches to development of predictive algorithms being replaced with machine learning and AI, or do traditional methods continue to provide unique value? If so, what is that value?
