Health Data: Transforming Data into Value

Data Without Insight = Data

View Description

If we take a look back at the past few years, we will see that we wasted a lot of time, money and resources piling up data and storing it for some ill-defined future use.

Genomics advances are poised to power predictive capabilities supporting individual and population health management. Learn about progress and challenges in integrating genomics capabilities in the workflow, leveraging genomics to be a clinical decision tool, and securing reimbursement.

Track 4

Convergence of Health and Non-Health Data

View Description

We are beginning to fully comprehend how our health is impacted by our social relationships, economic status, and genetic makeup, along with the many other interdependent attributes of our lives. Each of these comes with a set of data - both health and non-health data - that, when taken in totality, provides a more accurate set of information by which we are better able to identify causes of illness and reasons for wellness. There isn't and never was an "i" in data.
