Everyone is talking about Big Data and what it will mean for the U.S. healthcare system. A recent report estimated that the cost savings and operational efficiencies to the healthcare industry brought by Big Data could save the industry as much as $300 billion annually.
Yet unlike other industries, the uses of data are so varied and complex that many of us still grapple with the term Big Data itself. While some see it as a repository that is dependent upon volume, others identify it by those varied applications that cause the confusion in the first place.Together we will filter through the noise to gain a more solid understanding of both the term and its applications.
Dr. Yin Ho, CEO of Context Matters, kicks off the program with an overview that will help clarify some of the confusion, look at the history of Big Data in other industries and how they relate to various healthcare sectors. Then our Experts will engage in a roundtable dialogue to discuss practical applications, implications, and trends. In the end, you will walk away with a newly realized definition of Big Data based on how it relates to our industry.
