Alexandria, VA—Dennis Groseclose, President of TransVoyant, will be speaking in Philadelphia this month at the 2013 Health and Personal Care Logistics Spring Conference, a premier forum for logistics education, on his experiences with converting vast amounts of data into actionable information and meaningful decisions.
“TransVoyant has a rich history of converting historical, real-time and forecast data such as weather, shipping, traffic, location and video into actionable intelligence in the DOD and Intelligence Community,” stated Dennis Groseclose. “We are honored to participate in this conference and continue to strive to learn more about how to apply these capabilities to the healthcare community—bringing real-time data together to allow the industry to make better decisions.”
“Harnessing the power of live spatial, temporal, preference and context data through emerging technologies can help healthcare supply chains and patient care delivery,” continued Dennis. “For instance, ‘what’s the real-time status of temperatures, water levels, air quality, winds, mosquitos, news and social media surrounding an outbreak and how do I process all these disparate sources of live data to make meaningful real-time decisions to adjust inventory of medications and allocate scarce human capital to problem areas?’ We are focused on getting the right decisions in the hands of the right people, through the power of real-time information and prescriptive analytics using traditional healthcare data combined with a rapidly expanding universe of global live data. We recognize we must collaborate with the community to learn how to apply these capabilities in order enhance healthcare situational awareness, make better predictive decisions, reduce costs and improve outcomes.”
The Health and Personal Care Logistics Conference has existed for over 80 years as a source of logistics education for the health and personal care industries.
