VP, Research and Development, Innovation Center, Humana Inc.

Carol is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries and has 20 years of healthcare experience. Carol is currently Humana’s VP of R&D where she’s pioneered the use of novel techniques in prediction and computational health intelligence to predict health severity, disease progression and consumer health behavior. She also leads Humana’s Health Service Research Center, focused on health services research, the psychology of health behavior change, pharmacovigilance, and personalized medicine research.

It’s boring putting “insurance” as my area of expertise. I’m interested in anything remotely related to health and anything that’s weird and cool with data and analytics. This includes everything from ubiquitous computing, distributed intelligence, personal health & sensor technologies, you name it.

I’m also interested in self-organizing systems, the self-organization, co-creation and emergence of meaning in social systems, and the “social life” of information, particularly in highly recursive topologies, pervasive information ecosystems, and/or asymmetric information landscapes. I like to do scary stuff with data, where “prediction meets people” and can help them in novel ways.
