9:05am-9:20am (15m) Keynote
Bigger Data or Better Questions?
Alexandra Drane (Eliza Corporation)
Historically, the health care space has done a whole lot of ‘talking at’ and ‘lecturing to’ and not a whole lot of listening - to what really matters, to what really resonates – and not just to those who offer up their opinions, but perhaps even more importantly…to the millions of nameless faceless individuals out there struggling with where real life meets their health.

Big Data for Big People
Esther Dyson (EDventure Holdings) et al
What's the role of individuals in providing medical data for public use? What about clinical validity? ownership rights?

1:15pm-1:55pm (40m) Data and Analytics
Lessons from consumer web data science applied to personalized medicine and hospital efficiency
Scott Nicholson (on the loose)
It is clear that data are core to solving big problems in health care, and data science is the skill set needed to extract insights and make them actionable. Using lessons from experience from LinkedIn & online advertising and a large dataset of clinical and claims data, we will discuss results from efforts to increase the quality of care, decrease cost, and increase hospital efficiency.
2:05pm-2:45pm (40m) Data and Analytics
Learning Models for Metabolic Syndrome from Medical Claims Data

Metabolic Syndrome, MetS, is a huge and growing health burden, whether we’re talking about burdens that are clinical or economic, societal or individual. GNS and Aetna have partnered to develop Big Data analytics solutions to identify and characterize both those with MetS and at risk for MetS. We will share results and discuss insights and challenges in working with real-world data.
3:15pm-3:55pm (40m) Privacy
Handling "Hot" Health Data without Getting Burned
Michael Shoffner (UNC/RENCI)
Sharing sensitive data such as medical records is dangerous. But what if these "hot" health data could be handled safely and securely? Partners at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have developed a solution architecture that de-risks sharing these sensitive data. This session will present the security issues, the solution architecture, and a discussion on how attendees can apply it.
4:05pm-4:45pm (40m) Privacy
Responsibly Using And Disclosing De-identified Data Under The HIPAA Privacy Rule
Ann Waldo (Wittie, Letsche & Waldo, LLP) et al
De-identifiction of data is an extremely relevant topic nowadayas as there is a large requirement for de-identified data to further research and provide new business opportunities for organizations holding or needing access to valuable health data.
11:25am-12:05pm (40m) Healthcare Systems of the Future
How Predictive Analytics Lets The Health Care Ecosystem Do More For Patients Who Need Help
Josh Benner (RxAnte, Inc.)
Medications are the most common form of medical intervention. Yet since the days of Hippocrates, medication adherence has been a persistent public health problem. In this session, we'll tell practical stories about health care organizations are changing how they support patients related to medication use, fueled by new incentives, access to new data, and new predictive analytic tools.
1:15pm-1:55pm (40m) Healthcare Systems of the Future
Beyond the patient: Studying whole healthcare systems using claims data
Frederica Conrey (Booz Allen Hamilton)
Evidence-based care goes beyond individual interventions and patients. The major changes we are making to healthcare delivery and payment systems should also be evidence based. With new and improved analysis, we can use data we already have—claims data—to measure the impacts of provider, geographic, and payment systems on overall healthcare cost and quality.
2:05pm-2:45pm (40m) Healthcare Systems of the Future
Rapid Learning Systems to Improve Patient Outcomes and Reduce Healthcare Costs
Bharat Rao (Siemens Health Services)
Mining patient records collected in routine care has tremendous potential to individualize care to the specific patient. We present a US/Euro Health IT network where data from 10 cancer centers in 5 nations are securely mined to learn personalized models for many diseases. We overcome many technical challenges to mine big patient data, and present personalized therapy models for several diseases
3:15pm-3:55pm (40m) Healthcare Systems of the Future
Electronic Measurement in the Real World: Lessons Learned from the Beacon Communities

The Meaningful Use of Natural Language Processing in Healthcare
Josh Wills (Cloudera) et al
Even with the advent of sophisticated EHR systems, the vast majority of information about patient care is still recorded as free text, and this seems unlikely to change in the near future. This panel will discuss the path towards the meaningful use of natural language processing to improve patient care and clinical outcomes, both intrinsically and as a necessary input for predictive analytics.
2:05pm-2:45pm (40m) Sponsored Sessions
