Mathematica is sponsoring two important health conferences that start today: the National Academy for State Health Policy’s 33rd Annual State Health Policy Conference and the National Association of Health Data Organizations’ 35th Annual Conference. We value these opportunities to meet virtually with other experts in the field to discuss the latest in health policy, research, and data.
The National Academy for State Health Policy conference, which has the theme State Health Policy: Flexibility and Resiliency through COVID-19 and Beyond, brings together health policy professionals from across the country to address key topics important to the state health policy community. To support the academy’s work in this area, we partnered with it to create a data visualization providing state-level information that can inform COVID-19 contact tracing programs.
At the National Association of Health Data Organizations’ Annual Conference, themed Building a Bridge Between Data and Policy, we will learn the latest on health data initiatives, innovations in analytics, and public reporting. Join Mathematica’s Director of Health Program Improvement Sule Gerovich and Senior Fellow Diane Rittenhouse on August 18 for a panel discussion titled Late Breaking News: Impacts of COVID-19 on Health Data Organizations. And be sure to look out for Mathematica Researcher Candice Talkington as she facilitates a networking session on August 18 for attendees to share ideas and best practices on how to use or understand health data in the context of COVID-19. Also, on August 26, Mathematica is sponsoring a session, co-led by Sule Gerovich, called Improving and Expanding Analytics: Population Health. Don’t forget to check out recordings of the webinar series by the COVID-19 Health Data Users Group, formed in partnership with the National Association of Health Data Organizations, in which health data experts share their knowledge with group members and discuss experiences related to COVID-19.
We look forward to furthering our partnerships with these organizations through their conferences and the work that we do together. Learn more here about these and other virtual conferences Mathematica will be attending this year.
