Alere Analytics Provides Healthcare Insights on the Future of Patient Engagement at the 2013 NEHI Innovation Conference

Dr. Fauzia Khan to Share Vision on How Connectivity Technologies Can Help Providers and Patients Better Manage Their Own Health Across the Continuum of Care

Alere Analytics, an Alere subsidiary specializing in analytics and clinical decision support (CDS) technology, today announced that Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder, Dr. Fauzia Khan will participate on an industry panel that spotlights how connectivity technologies play a crucial rule in engaging patients and providers at the 2013 NEHI Innovation Conference. The NEHI Innovation Conference, which is being held at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA on October 3rd, will highlight how senior healthcare leaders and policymakers are addressing the challenges and opportunities of engaging patients in their own care.

In Dr. Khan’s panel discussion, she will demonstrate how real-time, evidence-based decision support, analytics and now mobile patient devices can more effectively engage patients, enabling personalized and immediate care recommendations, triggering earlier interventions, and improving overall clinical outcomes. By providing patient data management across the continuum of care, including real-time patient surveillance in the hospital/ICU and post discharge in the home with point-of-care devices, providers would be able to better manage patient information and identify care gaps in today's fragmented healthcare environment.
