Big Data has quickly become a critical element in determining strategy for the future of all industries, health care included. Those who best leverage data will win. Who's winning, and how? Who's innovating, and where are the opportunities? These are some of the questions we'll be asking at this event.

Companies of all sizes and in all verticals are accumulating data at an ever increasing rate. Potential value from data in the health care sector could be more than $300 billion in value every year, two thirds of which would be in the form of reducing national health care expenditures (source: McKinsey).

Only a quarter of physician offices and 15 percent of hospitals have EHR (Electronic Health Records) systems in place, but that number will likely increase as the Health and Human Services department distributes up to $27.4 billion in incentive funding to the private sector for EHR adoption over a decade.

Four distinct big data pools (Pharmaceutical R&D data, Clinical data, Claims and Cost data, Patient behavior data) exist in the US health care domain today with little overlap in ownership and low integration.

Join us for an informative panel discussion where we will discuss

  • Data as a Service (DaaS) business models for Healthcare.
  • Service oriented architecture-based application and service developments for Integration big data pools
  • Opportunities in healthcare-specific data warehousing and analytics requirements.

We will explore opportunities for the entrepreneur, ideas for the enterprise.
