XLDB-Healthcare Workshop

The joint XLDB-Stony Brook invitation-only workshop will explore the application of advanced large-scale data analytics to healthcare. The event will bring together national healthcare experts and thought leaders to provide a collaborative and interactive forum for cross-pollination between healthcare leaders and data analytics experts from academia, technology companies, and industries like social media, retail, entertainment, and manufacturing along with leaders in biomedical informatics and other fields. 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.

Healthcare participants will have the opportunity to learn from experts in other fields and initiate a dialogue that will ultimately positively impact patient outcomes, patient safety, and efficiency in the healthcare system. Biomedical Informatics participants will gain insight into how data analytic methods can be leveraged to address clinical and translational informatics.
