MedTech Stage
110 E 2nd St

The big data revolution that has changed our world in so many ways is now impacting the most sacred aspect of our lives: our health. Today, increasing amounts of digital data about our lifestyle, health, and healthcare are being captured by a wide range of industries. These data are being used for a wide range of applications from improving our fitness to predicting when we will get sick. This session will explore the past, present and future of predictive big-data health analytics. The challenges of using routinely captured healthcare data for predictive analytics will be discussed in the context of the presenters ongoing work in predicting sepsis and surgical-site infections.
