By analyzing their patient population, health care providers can manage and control escalating costs as well as improve the health outcomes of patients. In this talk, we will show an example of how the Cortana Intelligence Suite can be utilized to analyze the clinical and socio-economic in-patient data generated by the hospitals for population health reporting. Specifically, you will learn how to develop and deploy an end-to-end solution that includes Azure Data Lake Analytics with open-source R functionality to predict the length of hospital stay. Azure Data Lake includes all the capabilities required to make it easy for developers, data scientists, and analysts to store data of any size, shape, and speed, and do all types of processing and analytics across platforms and languages. Hospitals can use these results to optimize care management systems and focus the clinical resources on patients with more urgent need. The talk will include details of how the Cortana Intelligence Suite can be utilized for these type of solutions and tips and tricks to get started.
