With the proliferation of sensors, connected devices and applications to track food, activity, vital signs, and consumer social data, we are starting to gather a rich view of health behavior in the real world.

In a brave new world, when behavior profiles are combined with health records and even genomic data to create the holy trinity of healthcare, we can begin to prescribe the exact activities and interventions to guarantee the best health outcomes.

However, the behavior data also tell us that people’s behaviors are in a constant state of unpredictable flux. In addition to the different “personality profiles” of behavior, profiles seem to change for each person over time and under different circumstances.

Therefore, we need more than just data to change behavior, we need a constant environment of experimentation where data’s role is more than just prescriptive. In this session, we’ll explore experimentation platforms and data’s expanding role into measurement, optimization and identification of real-time context for health interventions.
