About this Event

In late 2018, the University of Houston (UH) and Humana entered into a strategic relationship to improve the value of health care delivery through educational, community and research initiatives that contribute to student success and workforce development. UH and Humana are engaged in several projects together that will leverage data with the goal of improving health outcomes, lowering healthcare costs and enhancing the quality of care delivery.  We will discuss some of these collaborative initiatives, as well as how data can be used to help clinical students better understand and positively impact the social context in which patients live.
