Weird Data Meets Healthcare: Data That Makes You Think

Listen to this on-demand vodcast to hear from Mike Alkire and Physician economist Anupam B. Jena as they explore healthcare data like never before.

Did you know there was a profound difference between seeing and looking? When it comes to leveraging big data for healthcare advancement, this could not be truer. From the economics of physician behavior and the physician workforce, health care productivity, and the economics of medical innovation, Dr. Jena leverages “natural experiments” using big data to change the way we see and broaden the way we think. 

Dr. Jena, a frequent Freakonomics speaker, has discovered hidden correlations under the data you wouldn’t expect. He has used Premier data which makes you think differently around clinical assumptions between clinician and social behavior that impacts patient outcomes.
