Big Data is a hot topic across the entire healthcare ecosystem so I was happy to join a panel of experts in the first of a series of Frost and Sullivan webinars that will help healthcare organizations to better understand how they can make use of the data they have. This first in this webinar series is now available for you to view on demand via the Frost and Sullivan website. The 2nd webinar continues the Big Data theme with a focus on Predictive Analytics in healthcare, please do register now for this must-see session on November 5th.
I was joined by Tod Davis, Manager of BI and Data Warehousing at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Amandeep Khurana, Principal Solutions Architect at Cloudera. I started the webinar by providing an overview of the current state of the healthcare industry in relation to data use, where many disparate data types are held in silos that limit the value considerably. At Intel we’re helping healthcare organizations move towards integrated computing and use of unified data to help deliver better patient outcomes and reduced costs.
An inspirational presentation from Tod Davis highlighted the outstanding work he and colleagues at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have been undertaking, including the benefits they are reaping from focusing on making use of data. I’d highly recommend listening to Tod for his take on:
- Lessons learned in 3 years with Hadoop
- Use cases including retinopathy of prematurity and using vital signs to monitor pediatric stress
- An overview of ecosystem tools and high-level data pipeline solution
Amandeep Khurana from Cloudera shared his thoughts on how Cloudera is helping to drive the big data ecosystem. Amandeep’s presentation sparked a number of great questions at the end of the webinar from viewers and I think you’ll find the answers of particular interest.
