Diagnostic Information Technology – Analytics and Algorithms that are Improving Care and Lowering Costs


Understanding how each individual metabolizes specific pharmaceuticals; knowing whether a person’s DNA is more likely to respond positively or negatively to certain therapeutics; and understanding gene expression patterns – knowing whether a gene is “turned on” or “turned off” are evolutionary keys to:

  • Knowing whether a prescription drug therapy plan is working as intended, providing no clinical value, or causing harm
  • Evaluating a person’s likely response to a life-changing treatment plan
  • Confirming a Yes or No complex autoimmune diagnosis

In the truest sense of the word, today’s breakthroughs in diagnostic information technology are elevating the health system’s ability to provide the most effective care, at the most appropriate time at the most reasonable costs.

Join us for a dynamic panel discussion where we explore how the diagnostic information technology revolution is reshaping and redefining population health management. Game-changing companies located here in the southeast will represent the panel:
