Big Data Meets Privacy
Nathalie Holmes (Privacy Analytics, Inc.), Khaled El Emam (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario - Research Institute & University of Ottawa)
This session will look at the risks and opportunities facing organizations in this "Big Data" age. It will also discuss the requirements for protecting privacy, identify a de-identification maturity model that can be used to assist organizations in the process of either evaluating a new de-identification methodology or their existing methodology.
1:00pm-2:15pm (1h 15m) Data Liquidity
Easier than Excel: Social Network Analysis of DocGraph with Gephi
Janos Hajagos (Stony Brook School of Medicine), Fred Trotter (FredTrotter.com)
It is assumed that social network analysis in healthcare is difficult. This assumption is wrong with the right tool and the DocGraph dataset. The goal of this tutorial is to allow participants to perform basic graph analysis of a healthcare dataset. After the tutorial participants should be able to use Gephi to generate novel hypotheses about the delivery of healthcare in Medicare.
2:25pm-3:40pm (1h 15m) Precision Medicine
Community Clouds for Cancer Genomics: Lessons Learned from Bionimbus
Robert Grossman (University of Chicago)
Bionimbus is a petabyte scale community cloud for managing, analyzing and sharing large genomics datasets that is operated by the not-for-profit Open Cloud Consortium. It contains public datasets, such as the 1000 Genomes dataset. We recently updated Bionimbus so that researchers can analyze data from controlled datasets, such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) in a secure and compliant fashion.
4:10pm-5:25pm (1h 15m) Platforms, Precision Medicine
3D Healthcare :: A “Deeper” Understanding of Motion Disorders
Lily Szajnberg (GAGE - Gait Assessment + Gesture Evaluation), Greg Borenstein (MIT Media Lab)
The Kinect disrupted way more than gaming when it was released in 2010; it made gestural control an affordable reality and found its way into myriad other industries. 2013 is bringing us Leap Motion, MYO, and improved tracking for the Kinect and Asus cameras. Learn how to harness these emerging technologies for healthcare applications just as they hit the market.
9:00am-10:15am (1h 15m) Platforms
Big Data for the Healthcare Executive
Yadid Ayzenberg (MIT Media Lab)
This session will provide you with the basic knowledge required to navigate through the sea of jargon that is “Big Data”. We'll survey the technologies used in the space and show examples that will illustrate how these technologies can solve real world healthcare problems. At the end of this session you will be able to “talk the talk” that is Big Data.
10:45am-12:00pm (1h 15m) Deal-Flow, Patient Engagement, Platforms, Value-Based Care
Improving the Business of Healthcare with Big/Complex Data - CANCELED
Nancy Braun (Thavron Solutions)
Improving the business of healthcare requires merging data and business analytics to surface opportunities that make it easier for the right people to get the right healthcare at the right costs. Understanding and improving the complexities of system costs and interactions underlying Health Services is blue water in the HealthCare big data domain.
1:00pm-2:15pm (1h 15m) Value-Based Care
How Data and Analytics Can Drive Real and Meaningful Organizational Changes
Eugene Kolker (Seattle Children's)
This workshop is designed for managers and leaders working in healthcare (HC) interested in demystifying the big data and analytics hype to discover how data can drive real and meaningful organizational changes. Participants will learn how to prioritize objectives and use a project-based approach to achieve real success in manageable increments.
2:25pm-3:40pm (1h 15m) Data Liquidity
Applying Downstream Analytics in a Big Data Environment
John McDaniel (NetApp)
The presentation will address big data, the next stage of meaningful use and its impending impacts on healthcare organizations. The ROI and promise big data represents, combined with the onset of a transformational shift in how care is administered across the healthcare delivery system, is forcing the healthcare industry to define big data and actualize its promise to improve patient outcomes.
4:10pm-5:25pm (1h 15m) Precision Medicine
Precision Medicine: Autism(s) as a Case History in Finding the True Names of Disease
Isaac Kohane (Harvard Medical School)
A recent IOM report on Precision Medicine articulated the case for using multiple dimensions of measurement, from the molecular to the environmental, all keyed to the individual, to redefine medical taxonomies that are more meaningful for prognosis and therapeutic decision-making.
7:00pm-8:30pm (1h 30m) Event
Ignite Strata Rx
If you had five minutes on stage in front of the Strata Rx audience, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Would you pitch a project? Launch a web site? Teach a hack? We’ll find out at the second edition of our Ignite event at Strata Rx.
9:00am-10:15am (1h 15m) Deal-Flow, Patient Engagement, Platforms
Emotional Healthcare | Why Data Doesn't Matter
Amik Ahmad (M.P.S., NYU ITP)
In health care data driven results are all the rage. The most innovative companies today use data to effect outcomes and simplify systems. But patient focus has largely been left out of the equation. This is about emotional design and how to create patient focused healthcare platforms where data is not the driver of decision, but a validator of emotional decisions that have already been made.

Why Opening Government Data Alone Can’t Cure Kenya’s Broken Health Care System
Ida Jooste (Internews)
Government and open data advocates expected the Kenya Open Data Initiative to jump-start a data-driven health policy debate. But the data dump didn’t account for the skills needed to catalyze the transformation of data into useful information. Explore how the database can be a robust public health tool with accelerated contribution, data literacy education and data-driven storytelling.
2:25pm-3:40pm (1h 15m) Deal-Flow
Broken Premises: Why Models Fail and What to Do About It
wendy hou (Rogue Wave Software), Roxy Cramer (Rogue Wave)
Too often data analysis projects are planned and executed in a linear manner. Despite all the contingencies in the project plan for data problems or poorly fitting models, models can fail for a variety of reasons long after “go-live”. The safeguard against model failures is to adopt a Data Analytics Process: a cycle with specific stages for monitoring and continual improvement of data, model...

The Changing Legal Landscape - How the HITECH/HIPAA Final Rule Affects Health Data Research and Liquidity
Ann Waldo (Wittie, Letsche & Waldo, LLP), Roger Magoulas (O'Reilly Media)
Good news - The 563-page HITECH Final Rule liberalizes some research requirements. Bad news - the Rule also imposes new restrictions that will pose barriers to data-intensive research.
