Big data and disruption in health care

According to an article recently published in Forbes, the opportunity for disruption in the health care market is a trillion (with a T!) dollars. Or as recently cited on SiliconAngle,

“As of today, 80 percent of medical data is unstructured but clinically relevant. If this data can be better leveraged, it could create more than $300 billion in value each year.”

The opportunity — for disruption but also for creation of value — is tremendous. That is why I am so personally excited to be working with Gigaom Research on a new project, “The promise and challenge of data management in modern health care,” a free analyst roundtable webinar on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, at 10:00 am PT. I’ll be joining Gigaom’s Jo Maitland, John Webster from Evaluator Group and our customer Dan Woicke of Cerner to discuss topics including:

  • A high-level overview of how health care is changing from a regulatory and technology standpoint
  • What are the challenges and opportunities with respect to data management in health care?
  • What is the impact of big data in health care?
  • What technologies are hospitals using today to improve data management?
  • What are the trends shaping health care from a technology standpoint over the next three to five years?

You should attend if you are:

  • CIOs at health care providers
  • IT decision makers
  • Enterprise architects
  • Database architects
  • Data management professionals
  • Data analysts

I hope you will join us on the 23rd. Register now!
