How Data Can Transform Your Health Care Workforce

Data and predictive analytics are everywhere today. Amazon uses it to tell you what to buy. Netflix uses it to tell you what to watch. Google tells you what to search for. Facebook tells you who to befriend. And yes, Arena uses it to help you figure out who to hire.

Data has great power. But as Teddy Roosevelt warned us, with great power comes great responsibility. And to truly understand the opportunities and limitations of data and predictive analytics requires digging a little deeper.

That’s why we decided to put together Arena Academy: a series of informative educational videos and podcast episodes that help explain how Arena’s predictive models can help health care organizations transform their workforces.

We’re grateful to have Kyle Polich host the videos and podcast. Kyle is the creator and host of the DataSkeptic podcast that explains data science in a compelling way that’s easy for anyone to understand.

Here’s the line-up.
