NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Iona College recently announced a new Center for Health Care Analytics in the Hagan School of Business.
The focus of the Center will be "the development of Health Care management capabilities in drawing clinical and business intelligence from massive repositories that are available across the continuum of the health care industry," representatives said. The center will be a multi-disciplinary program necessary to complement the health care focus drawing professional expertise from the Iona faculty.
“Iona’s Hagan School of Business graduate students will have exposure to the diverse skills necessary for an analytics-based organization in which clinical and business intelligence are essential for achieving quality, performance and economic success,” said Paul Savage, program director of Health Care Management and director of the new Center for Health Care Analytics.
"While health care has traditionally focused on brief patient treatment episodes, disease conditions and restoration, the new paradigm will be population health, prevention and wellness initiatives in which the best practices of clinicians are recognizable in a decision-support environment," representatives said.
“According to the McKinsey Global Institute, by 2018, the United States will face a shortage of more than 1.5 million managers, analysts and other workers who are well-versed in the principles and use of analytics,” added Savage. “It is from this perspective that the Center for Health Care Analytics in the Hagan School of Business at Iona College has been created.”
