Lorraine Fernandes, RHIA, Global Healthcare Industry Ambassador, IBM

Since its inception in 1902, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (CSMC) has evolved to become the largest nonprofit hospital in the western United States - one that is internationally renowned for the best patient care modern medicine has to offer.  Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is committed to providing superior outpatient, acute and sub-acute patient care, breakthrough biomedical research, graduate and undergraduate medical education and community service.  In 2013, for the 18th year in a row, Cedars-Sinai won the National Research Corporation's Consumer Choice Award (NRC) for providing the highest quality medical care in the Los Angeles region based on a survey of area households.

CSMC started their MDM journey in 2005, like many health care organizations, mastering patient/customer data in order to address data quality, data exchange, customer satisfaction, and regulatory compliance business challenges.  Over the years, CSMC has transformed business processes and technology as they embrace analytics, higher customer service, and the economic pressure facing healthcare.  Given the quick time to value and success of the patient index, their MDM solution evolved and expanded dramatically to drive improved advanced quality care, a new technical environment and research. 

Topics include:

  • Incrementally evolving Cedars’ MDM solution to support new critical business challenges while delivering quick time to value and ROI
  • Enhancing data quality and supporting research while applying governance
  • Leveraging big data to expedite regulatory compliance and improve customer service
