Preparing for Surprise
Carol McCall (GNS Healthcare)
To address the issues we face in healthcare we must be able to be wrong. We must quell our (false) certainties and, rather than “look for what we’re looking for”, allow ourselves to be surprised. How can we prepare to be surprised?
11:25am-11:40am (15m) Keynote
Solving the Wanamaker Problem for Healthcare
Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media, Inc.)
In the early days of the 20th century, department store magnate John Wanamaker famously said, "I know that half of my advertising doesn't work. The problem is that I don't know which half." The consumer internet revolution was fueled by the use of massive amounts of data to answer that problem. Now, the same transformation awaits in healthcare.

AgaMatrix Fights Diabetes using Data and Design
Sridhar Iyengar (AgaMatrix)
Diabetes treatment accounts for 10% of healthcare spending in the US. AgaMatrix uses big data to improve patient care and clinical accuracy while driving down manufacturing costs. One way we do this is with iBGStar - a glucose meter for the iPhone that makes data collection easy. It's a useful tool to for patients to manage their condition and provides researchers a large volume of health data.

The Shape of Big Data Can Impact Cancer Outcomes
Pek Lum (Ayasdi)
Gleaning insights from massive and complex datasets from clinical trials can be challenging. You usually have to know the right questions to ask before you can begin to find answers. With Ayasdi’s Iris solution, you can visualize entire datasets and unearth powerful insights in seconds--answering the questions that you didn’t know to ask.
5:15pm-5:55pm (40m) Social Networking, Crowdsourcing, and Prizes
How Open Data and Prize Competitions Will Drive Innovation in Health

The panelists will focus on specific examples of how using prizes competitions in conjunction with an open data movement are disrupting the data analytics space.
1:15pm-1:55pm (40m) Data and Analytics
Reasons why health data is poorly integrated today and what we can do about it
Shahid Shah (Netspective)
We all intuitively understand that the usage of data in healthcare should improve quality, reduce cost, and hopefully affect outcomes of research and end end in better care. However, many of our best sources of data like EHRs and other health IT systems do a poor job of data integration. This talk will outline the reasons for poor integration today and what we can do about it.
2:05pm-2:45pm (40m) Data and Analytics
Health Data Now: The Untapped Potential Of Structured Data Stuck On Paper
Darren Hite (Aberdare Ventures) et al
The goal of this panel is to bring health and tech perspectives together for a deep dive into the ever-present problem of data stuck on paper forms. We’ll hear four panelists, representing payers, strategists, healthcare technology VCs, and health-oriented startups, give their perspectives on the persistence of paper and the value of extracting health data from paper forms.
3:35pm-4:15pm (40m) Data and Analytics
clearScience: Dragging Scientific Communication into the Information Age
Brian Bot (Sage Bionetworks) et al
Data-intensive scientific communication is broken. Ironically, the components necessary for open and executable science exist in isolation. clearScience is a pilot at Sage Bionetworks to assemble these components—data, code, and compute infrastructure into a stack that not only facilitates effective reporting of science, but delivery of the science itself.
4:25pm-5:05pm (40m) Data and Analytics, Healthcare Systems of the Future, Next-gen Disease Management
Predictive Analytics of Multi-Dimensional Data Leads to Accurate & Personalized Treatment Recommendations for Patients and Lower Cost To Serve
Christos Tryfonas (VMware) et al
Hospitals, healthcare providers & insurance companies have traditionally been using standard statistical & Bayesian approaches for data modeling and predictive analytics. But these approaches fall short in the light of the very large volume, variety and velocity of Big Data. In this session, we talk about machine learning & combinatorial algorithms that can enable personalized recommendations.
5:15pm-5:55pm (40m) Data and Analytics
Doing Big Data All By Yourself: Interactive Data Driven Decision Making by Non-Programmers
Ari Gesher (Palantir Technologies) et al
As healthcare organizations gain access to more data, they rely increasingly on complex systems and predictive tools. This has led to a divide between technical analysts and decision-makers. We will live demo a system that bridges this gap using an integrated set of big-data technologies mated with an interactive GUI. This demo uses 10 years of Medicare claims consisting of 1.2 billion records.
1:15pm-1:55pm (40m) Next-gen Disease Management
Impacts of social health data on predicting weight loss and engagement
Jin Hahn (Stanford University) et al
We describe the impacts of a sensor-validated social health model on improving health by processing lifestyle and medical data obtained from a clinical trial. Analysis results show the importance of well-designed social fitness games and frictionless sensor environments in improving the fitness of participants. Furthermore, predictive models show the importance of social elements in health.
2:05pm-2:45pm (40m) Next-gen Disease Management
Using the “Social fMRI” to investigate health and wellness mechanisms with mobile phones
Nadav Aharony (Behavio)
The Social fMRI is a novel methodology that uses phones as social & behavioral sensors, aggregated to create a rich multi-dimensional image of a living community. We used it to collect over one million hours of data, helping us investigate topics of health, wellness & more. We tested new social game mechanics, doubling physical activity - during Winter in Boston. Did I mention it’s open source?
3:35pm-4:15pm (40m) Patient Engagement
Analytics in Healthcare Consumerism

Consumer driven health plans aim to lower healthcare costs by encouraging individual members to become savvy shoppers. In this talk, we analyze the shopping opportunities and price variations seen by consumers in the healthcare market.
4:25pm-5:05pm (40m) Patient Engagement
APCDs - How Big Data in Health Care will Empower Patients and Transform Health Care
John Freedman (Freedman HealthCare)
All payer data bases (APCDs) are collections of the health claims data for all citizens of a state. This powerful data is revitalizing public health, and provider performance measurement – all to the benefit of patients, who now have access to unprecedented information in support of their own medical decision making.
5:15pm-5:55pm (40m) Patient Engagement
Cancer Patients and Pharma Catalyze Action to Share Research Data
Marcia Kean (Feinstein Kean Healthcare) et al
The cancer research community has been extremely resistant to data sharing, and cancer data of all kinds have been trapped. Now, cancer patients are awakening to a new day, enabled by numerous technological and societal shifts. A broad coalition led by patients and pharma companies is launching an initiative to drive standards-based data exchange to fuel research and improve care.
