Discussion focuses on analytics’ role in reforming the healthcare industry

Austin, TX, March 03, 2012 --(PR.com)-- What: The Science of Better podcast series has released a new podcast, Crunching the Numbers, in which Ayata CEO, Atanu Basu, explains how Prescriptive Analytics® is going to help reform the U.S. healthcare system.

This podcast describes how big data and advanced analytics will significantly improve decision making – and thus outcomes – to help the healthcare industry transform from “sick care” to “health care.”
