POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Chicago, IL - October 2 - 3, 2017
Jay Bhatt’s knowledge of population health, health and the health care field is expansive, pulling from his experience in health policy and quality improvement to population health and data analytics… coupled with his personal experience as a practicing internal medicine physician.
Experienced as a keynote speaker sharing insights from the field, he is equally adept at facilitating small group sessions with hospital and physician leaders, leadership workshops and narrative and social media training.
Jay serves as chief medical officer of the American Hospital Association and president of the Health Research & Educational Trust. As such, he is in a unique position to speak to the quality improvement efforts being undertaken at hospitals across the country, interventions and evidence-based strategies to improve care for patients. Jay is overseeing a national effort to improve equity of care and eliminate disparities and can offer tangible examples of how disparities and social determinants of health are negatively impacting individuals’ potential for good health.
Previously as the first chief health officer at the Illinois Health & Hospital Association, Jay led large improvement projects, launched several improvement collaboratives, and designed and advanced a statewide high-reliability initiative. In a prior role as managing deputy commissioner and chief innovation officer for the Chicago Department of Public Health, he led the implementation of Healthy Chicago - the city's public health agenda including innovations in cross-sector partnerships that were nationally recognized, award winning predictive analytics, cutting edge epidemiology and informatics.
Jay Bhatt, chief medical officer of the American Hospital Association and president of the Health Research & Educational Trust, will present a holistic, 360-degree look at population health today. From local work developing healthy communities to national efforts to transform healthcare, Bhatt will share how to face the challenges organizations like yours face every day and look at the future of population health.
