2017-2018 Webinar Series


Following the success of last year’s series of educational webinars, the Johns Hopkins ACG System Team will be facilitating new sessions over the next year. The goal of the webinar series is to provide ACG System users from across the globe the opportunity to share their work with like-minded people. We will hear speakers from several countries including the U.S., the U.K., Israel, Sweden and South Africa.

There is no cost to attend the webinar series, but each session requires a free registration.

About the Presentation:  The focus of version 12.0 of the ACG System, scheduled for the end of 2018, is to leverage additional sources of data to make robust clinical categorizations available to assess and stratify your populations. In this webinar, Dr. Sutch—director of product development, will walk us through various v12.0 features such as refined risk assessment variables and enhanced analytics. Highlights include:

  • JHU-ACG Emergency Department Visit Classification
  • Laboratory Markers
  • Clinical review of Rx-MGs
  • Opioid use/misuse markers
  • Morbidity derived from supplementary data (e.g. disease registries, previously recorded diagnoses)

From identifying those with pre-diabetes, to avoiding hospital admissions, learn how the upcoming v12.0 ACG System features can help you get a clearer picture of your population’s health for faster decision-making.
