  1. Interesting that CHI has teamed up with Accenture on the “Big Data” analytical project as they had been working with Encore Health Resources on a similar project using tools and processes collaboratively build by Encore and CHI as part of the CoreANALYTICS tool-set. With the goal to apply analytical tools to big data compiled from a multitude of system to specific populations such as the one described. It sounds like that work is being absorbed by Accenture. I’d love to hear more from Encore on what happened.
