Prediction Model Improves Alzheimer's Management & Prevention

October 2, 2017
3:45pm - 4:15pm
Grand Ballroom

A Chicago-based neurologist shares best practices in using the electronic medical record (EMR) in delaying – even preventing – the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, now reaching epidemic proportions in America. She'll detail data and analytics, care coordination and patient engagement with regards to brain health and look at how specialists identify patients at high risk for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders years before disease onset. She'll also describe how these patients can be integrated into long-term brain health care and surveillance to delay or prevent disease.

Key takeaways:

  • Demonstrate a structured clinical documentation support toolkit built into the EMR for the evaluation and management of brain health aimed at Alzheimer’s prevention.
  • Understand an EMR data-driven Alzheimer’s prediction model designed to “risk-score” patients for population health management.
  • Review “Smart” Orders Sets in the treatment of cognitive decline and modifiable risk factors for patient engagement.
