S3 EP. 1 Why IT and Patient Care Go Hand-In-Hand Connect with Encompass Health

What does it mean to have a patient-centered IT department? In this episode of Connect, Encompass Health’s Darren Freeman, vice president of corporate systems and business intelligence, and Jake Knight, associate director of business intelligence data warehouse, discuss with host Mary Ellen DeBardeleben how IT plays a critical role in patient care at Encompass Health. The proprietary platform developed by their team, Beacon, helps support clinicians in caring for patients by taking data from various sources and visualizing them in an easy-to-read manner to tell a greater story and identify trends to improve patient care at the hospital and company level.
