This winter, data is armor against “tripledemic” healthcare challenges

Healthcare Analytics

Arcadia’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kate Behan, emphasizes the crucial role of data analytics in managing the challenges posed by the concurrent outbreaks of influenza, COVID-19, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in a recent MedCity News article.

The "Tripledemic": Influenza, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), and COVID-19

Dr. Behan underscores the instrumental role of data analytics in helping healthcare organizations handle increased patient volume:

  • Data tools enable quick information retrieval, aiding clinical and operational staff in resource allocation during high-demand periods
  • Stratification tools help prioritize patient care, directing individuals to the most suitable site of care
  • Data analytics alleviates pressure on providers by delivering curated insights at the point of care, expediting decision-making

Beyond a responsive tool, data analytics contributes to better outcomes before, during, and after public health events by identifying patient needs, tracking progress, and offering insights into population health.
