Data Science Transforms Health Care

Date: Tuesday February 12, 2013
Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Place: University of Colorado Denver - North Classroom #1539 - 1200 Larimer Street   Denver, CO 80217-3364 - Map:


This event explores how data science will help us restructure the business of health care more effectively around outcomes and how it will transform the practice of medicine by personalizing for each specific patient.

Just as Google transformed advertising with new uses of data and analysis, health care is ripe for a similar transformation as new tools, techniques, and data sources are available. Data science has the potential to help us make better policy and resource decisions at lower cost and make improved medical decisions based on a patient's specific biology.



Patrick Gordon currently serves as associate vice president of community integration for Rocky Mountain Health Plans. In addition to his role as executive director of the Colorado Beacon Consortium, he is also leading the implementation of the Medicaid Accountable Care Collaborative project in western and northern Colorado. Mr. Gordon received his Master of Public Administration in Health Policy & Economics from the University of Colorado, and has certification from America’s Health Insurance Plans Executive Leadership program (CHIE).

Rocky Mountain Health Plans (RMHP) is an independent, not-for-profit health insurance provider that has served the health care needs of Coloradans for more than 35 years.

Marc Lassaux is the Chief Technology Officer for Quality Health Network (QHN) based in Grand Junction Colorado and has been the technical director for The Colorado Beacon Consortium. He has served as a co-chair for the Beacon Community of Practice for Health Information Technology (HIT) and Meaningful Use under the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for HIT. Mr. Lassaux has a Bachelor of Science degree in computer management science and information systems from the Metropolitan State College of Denver and is a Certified Professional in Health Information Technology (CPHIT).

Quality Health Network (QHN) provides for the secure exchange of electronic health information making your information available to authorized caregivers - when it’s needed, where it’s needed - so they have a complete picture of your health and can provide you the best possible care.


The Colorado Beacon Consortium (CBC) has won an award from the 2013 Healthcare Informatics Innovator Awards. See:­ . Patrick Gordon and Marc Lassaux, leaders at CBC, are leveraging analytics and health information exchange tools to bring powerful population health capabilities to office-based physicians across western Colorado. They are using the advanced HIE architecture of the Quality Health Network to deploy a state-of-the-art decision support tool called Archimedes IndiGO (from the San Francisco-based Archimedes) across multiple, independent primary care sites, operating on multiple, independent electronic health records (EHRs) throughout western Colorado, in order to perform data analytics across a base of more than 55,000 patients by the end of the first quarter of this year.

Using individual personal health information, de-identified from the EHR of individual patients, CBC leaders are calculating the risks of different diseases, and the overall health impact of different medication and lifestyle interventions on thousands of patients in the system, in effect creating individualized guidelines designed to help the physician and patient to make optimal preventive care decisions. What’s more, IndiGO then displays this information in a user-friendly graphical interface, allowing the physician and patient to compare the effects of different treatment choices.

As Gordon and Lassaux wrote in their Innovator Awards submission, “In this project, we are actively bridging advance population health analytics, risk stratification, targeted clinical interventions and patient activation in a single architecture. There are currently few (if any) working examples of multiple sources of disparate, clinical and payer data being aggregated and normalized within HIE to support deployment of a shared analytic tool in multiple, independent, primary care settings. The patient-facing component of IndiGO aligns well with the active promotion new skills, such as motivational interviewing, and new measures, such as the Patient Activation Measure (PAM), in comprehensive primary care models.” .
