The joint XLDB-Stony Brook invitation-only workshop will explore the application of advanced large-scale data analytics to healthcare, exploring how this can be leveraged to effect real change in healthcare through collaboration with hospital systems and healthcare networks. The event will bring together national healthcare experts and thought leaders to provide a collaborative and interactive forum for cross-pollination between healthcare leaders, leaders in biomedical informatics and data analytics experts. The goal of this workshop will be to seek innovative yet practical solutions, leveraging existing and near-future extreme scale data sets in combination with "Big Data" technologies in databases, analytics, and NoSQL to optimize efficiency and quality in healthcare delivery.
Non-healthcare participants will have the opportunity to better understand data analytics needs in healthcare and get the healthcare community on board with their techniques, building the user base, adding resources, and avoiding fragmentation of the big data analytics market.
Biomedical Informatics participants will explore with experts in data analytics methods to best address current issues clinical and translational informatics. Healthcare participants will have the opportunity to identify how big data can be best used to implement change that will ultimately positively impact patient outcomes, patient safety, and efficiency in the healthcare system.
