Empowering OHN's Through the Use of Big Data Analytics

Apr 25, 2017 9:15am ‐ Apr 25, 2017 10:45am

With the advancement of technology, the occupational health nurse (OHN) is in a key position to stimulate change through the use of “Big Data Analytics.” By requesting and using multiple data sets, already being managed by organizations, OHNs can begin to analyze relationships to further support better decision- making. This session will introduce OHNs to big data and how basic analytics can be used to improve the health and safety of the employee.

  • Outline the history of nurses using data.
  • Discuss the concept of “Big Data Analytics” in relation to health and wellness.
  • Discuss the role of an occupational health nurse in using the guiding principles of "Big Data Analytics."

The first panelist will describe the work of the Manhattan clinic for the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health, a World Trade Center Health Program and Clinical Center of Excellence, whose work is based on the work-related exposures of first responders in the US 9/11 terrorist attack of the World Trade Center. The second panelist will focus on how to design and implement effective health programs for a vastly diverse population, across ASEAN countries, from the design of the program facilitates to the creation of preventative interventions to decrease morbidity and absenteeism, with the ultimate goal of these programs to increase morale and productivity. Finally, the expense and complexity of conducting research in occupational health requires that we remain open to emerging methods, such as social media, that can be both informative and cost effective within an organization, across a country and across the globe.

  • Identify occupational health exposures and long term health implications in the World Trade Center first responders.
  • Describe a low cost, high impact health program for a multicultural population.
