Patient Power: A Data and Mobile Health Revolution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It has been estimated that as much as 90% of all data in the world has been generated in the past two years. While “big data” has dramatically changed the way we live our lives from shopping to social interactions, the big data revolution is just beginning to touch the most sacred aspect of our lives: our health. This panel will discuss the current state and future of the big data revolution in health and personal wellness, as well as the challenges to building a data-driven health system. The panel will discuss how mobile devices have the potential to allow patients to own and manage their personal health data, and how computing advances may enable big data analytics to promote health and wellness. The panel will also focus on how this fundamental shift in health data ownership – from providers to individuals – will empower us to understand our personal health like never before. Panelists include representatives from the healthcare, computing, mobile, and data analytics sectors.
