The healthcare industry did not take leadership in harnessing the power of data. But finally, big data has arrived in healthcare. Payer organizations and healthcare providers increasingly have access to growing volumes of both structured and unstructured data. How this data is harnessed and leveraged will have a huge impact in transforming healthcare from availability and access of electronic health and medical records, to diagnosis, therapeutics, and new insights into diseases through volumes of clinical and epidemiological data.
There are both challenges and opportunities in data driven healthcare model. As of yet there are few proven strategies for meeting user requirements for access, analysis, and visualization of big data. There are also huge opportunities for data driven decision making of healthcare strategies. For instance, data may drive disruptions in personalized patient care, reducing readmissions and more.
An eminent group of healthcare stalwarts at Health Technology Forum annual conference on May 20, in San Francisco, CA will discuss the availability of Big Data in transforming healthcare industry. The panel will evaluate Big Data use cases, and will trace the generation and use of such data to and from government, public and private sector sources. The panel will also discuss revenue models tied to the new emerging technologies and their impact on public health. To register for the conference, go to www.healthtechnologyforum.com.
