Using AI to Tackle the Future of Health Care Data
Adoption of new Patient Centric software in the Health Care industry means huge new data sets will soon be available. These corpora include enormous amounts of unstructured text, detailed phenotype expression data, bio-bank tissue data and complicated interactions of pharmaceuticals. Though welcome, these data require we take large steps forward in our ability to process, analyze, model and predict patient health.We will discuss:
* Key insights from the fight against Cancer using AI
* The role of Natural Language Processing in the new paradigm
* How to adapt traditional AI & ML methods to current challenges
* The use of graph structures to simplify problems
* The role of High-Performance Computing and how analysts can participate
* How software packages simultaneously liberate and constrain the field of Data Science

(Speaker Cancelled)Potential Solutions from Precision Medicine for the Crisis of Chronic Disease
Chronic health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer and kidney disease account for more than 75% of the nation's $2.7 trillion in annual spending for medical care. 80% of their onset can be avoided if individual biomarker-guided targeted early prevention is implemented. However current risk stratification and prediction tools used by healthcare industry today only capture about less than 25% high-cost patients at the very late full-blown stage of a disease. That is why current care or disease management programs failed to bend the cost curve, and HC cost still grows at an unsustainable speed.

Genetic risk biomarker integrated modeling can improve accurate risk estimation & prediction and will optimize intervention at the right time with the right patients and can achieve maximum ROI.

Precision medicine will revolutionize HC from sick care to prevention and health preservation.What is needed and how these discoveries will be used to speed up this transformation and consequent cost saving from these potentially reduced chronic diseases will be explored.

Intro to Healthcare Analytics
I would discuss My role at Anthem. I take the lead in supporting the provider analytics contacting the team in California. The tools I develop guide cost of care initiatives, contracting renewals, and programming initiatives for internal and external consults.

Through the development of preliminary analytical tools like plug and play models and predictive trend reports, we can deep dive into concrete details questions that help us discover trends within membership, facilities, and doctors.

As a novice to this analytic data world, with only two years of experience, the possibility of how I can utilize my skills and use data science to improve healthcare is a great passion of mine.

Healthcare Data Analytics Landscape
What is Analytics Landscape? Throughout the year and have spoken to many and the answer is simply building a data warehouse, and it will solve organization analytics needs. The true is Data warehouse is not analytics platform, and data warehouse simply is the way to integrate data from multiple sources, as simple as that.

What about BI? BI or Business Intelligence simply just a reporting tools to deliver content to your user instead provide insight. In reality, that almost no one in your organization understands statistical result. What is missing is how you deliver the statistical result to your user, not just through reporting tools, but also allowing your audience to be able to connect the dot and that is what I call provide insight. The same mythology also applies to building healthcare data analytics landscape.
