11:00am-11:40am (40m) Value-Based Care
The Next Top 5 Percent: How to Identify Patients Whose Cost of Care is About to Skyrocket – and Intervene Early
Tim Darling (Objective Health, McKinsey & Company), Arijit Sengupta (BeyondCore)
McKinsey and BeyondCore analyzed 30M+ claims lives to predict the patients most likely to experience increases in healthcare costs. Best predictors of increases involve multiple variables such as: 50 year old patients with depression who have been discharged from a heart procedure. We used Big Data analytics to automatically evaluate a million variable combinations to reveal actionable patterns.
11:50am-12:30pm (40m) Value-Based Care
Harnessing Public Data Mash-ups for Healthcare
John Mattison (Kaiser Permanente, SCAL), Hulya Emir-Farinas (Pivotal)
Public datasets can be used to enrich proprietary data and obtain more robust predictive models. However, public data, especially user-generated content, is notoriously messy. In this talk, using the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System (AERS), we will explain how to cleanse data and mash it up with other data sources for insight.
1:30pm-2:10pm (40m) Value-Based Care
Comparative Effectiveness from Real World Data
Marc Berger, M.D. (Pfizer), Robert Epstein, M.D., Usman Iqbal (Sanofi )
Pioneers and leaders in comparative effectiveness and pharma health economics and outcomes research and real world data will debate the various challenges posed by the evolving need to extract evidence from clinical trial and real world data.
2:20pm-3:00pm (40m) Value-Based Care
Clinical Algorithms at Work: Shifting from Surveillance to Improving Clinical Outcomes
Andrew Cardon (Health Catalyst), John Shepard (Stanford University)
Hospital reporting requirements are increasing, resulting in the need for more surveillance. The issue is how to streamline surveillance in order to shift resources from surveillance toward clinical interventions that result in improved outcomes.
3:30pm-4:10pm (40m) Patient Engagement
Consumer Engagement: Why it matters and how to measure it
Jordan Shlain (Healthloop), Alexandra Drane (Eliza Corporation), Sridhar Iyengar (AgaMatrix)
In this session, an expert panel explores consumer behavior. Big data is a huge win for for quants, but what will it take for patients to embrace it? Evidence shows that engagement strategies based on an understanding of individuals as whole people in time — not just as temporary patients — and designed to make a human connection have the greatest impact.
11:00am-11:40am (40m) Deal-Flow
Deal Flow in Healthcare Big Data and IT
Bijan Salehizadeh (Navimed Capital), Anthony Gerardi (Truven Health), Michael Greeley (Flybridge Capital Partners)
Venture financing, M&A, and IPOs are now starting to become commonplace in the healthcare data & analytics and Health IT markets, becoming one of the fastest growing sectors for deal flow, and outpacing growth in more traditional drug development and medical device markets. What’s driving this trend, who will be the winners and losers, and where is the market headed?
11:50am-12:30pm (40m) Patient Engagement

Through the use of case studies, Dr. Bercovici will demonstrate the very significant impact that the clinical adoption of genomic medicine is having on patient outcomes today.
2:20pm-3:00pm (40m) Platforms
From Terrorists to T Cells: Applying Big Data Technology to Drug Development
Lauren Chaparro (Palantir Technologies), Andrew Girvin (Palantir Technologies)
Harnessing big data in the early discovery of new pharmaceuticals requires the breakdown of data siloes, visualization of complex systems and secure sharing. Using technology originally created for the very different data sources of the US Intelligence community, this session will break down the use of cutting edge techniques used to harness data and inform safe, smarter, and faster drug design.
3:30pm-4:10pm (40m) Data Liquidity
So, You've Built a Health Sensor Device. What Should You Do With the Data?
Rachel Kalmar (Sensored)
Health sensors are becoming ubiquitous, health tracking is in vogue, and given the rise of the maker, hardware, and crowdfunding movements, it is becoming increasingly easy to build a health sensor device. After focusing on the hardware, what do you need to know about handling data? This session will discuss issues about making data available, and why you should care.
11:00am-11:40am (40m) Platforms
Fueling Clinical Apps with Meaningful Use Standards
Josh Mandel (Harvard Medical School), David Kreda (SMART Platforms)
Developers struggle to integrate clinical apps with today's EHR systems. SMART Platforms has built an open-source tool that exposes a lightweight RESTful API on top of Meaningful Use standards. In this session we'll dig into the challenges of working with patient-level health data, framing solutions with a case study (and live demo) of SMART's Pediatric Growth Chart app.

2:20pm-3:00pm (40m) Platforms
Service Oriented Architecture Requires Service Oriented Data
Shahid Shah (Netspective)
The modern web is built on service-oriented architecture and web-oriented architecture. However, our data architectures haven't kept up and are still very application oriented and monolithic in nature. Join IT expert Shahid Shah talk about how to create service oriented databases for healthcare, patient engagement, and biomedical purposes.
3:30pm-4:10pm (40m) Platforms
HIPAA and Cloud Applications: the Basics of Handling PHI for Developers
Eric Nelson (Janrain)
This session will provide an overview and discussion for developers of how to adhere to HIPAA guidelines while building a cloud-based application that handles Protected Health Information. There are very few publicly available resources for developers of cloud-based healthcare apps, so we will directly tackle the issues developers encounter when trying to launch an application in the cloud.
11:00am-11:40am (40m) Sponsored Sessions
Incremental Healthcare Analytics: from analysing health history to planning health future
Nitin Agarwal (Impetus Technologies)
