Dear DCI Community Members,

We are excited to share the latest developments of the DCI Network with you!

In the month of October 2022, The DCI Network successfully hosted a webinar series. We had some great talks with stellar speakers on COVID-19 Data Platforms and a panel session on the Future of Telemedicine.

Please visit to sign up for future webinars and watch the recordings of our recently hosted webinars.

Upcoming Webinars:

Data Flow in the Healthcare Ecosystem

Wed, 12/07/2022 - 12:00 EST

Steven E. Labkoff, MD, FACP, FACMI, FAMIA

Global Head, Clinical and Healthcare Informatics, Quantori

Collaborating Scientist, Division of Clinical Informatics, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School

Many think that patient care is at the heart of any medical center or health delivery organization. While that may be true, what is also true is that at its core, these are organizations that are largely run based on the data they produce. Not only is the data produced in these organizations for clinical care, but the same data is also at the heart of the healthcare ecosystem. Enormous contracts between the healthcare providing organization, insurance companies, pharmacy benefit managers, life science companies, and more are based on the data and the analytics that are performed on these data. This talk will outline the creation and flow of data in the healthcare ecosystem. We will describe how these data are used by any number of secondary uses to drive financial as well as healthcare related decision making. We will also discuss some of the core caveats that need to be taken into account based upon how these data are generated, stewarded, and used. This basic understanding can help those entering into or working in the ecosystem to better comprehend not only the value of this data, but how it’s used, by whom, and for what purposes.
