Big Data Event
Mount Sinai and The Atlantic Host Working Summit On Big Data In New York City
Thought leaders from top medical centers, academia, and private industry gathered to discuss ways to harness the information revolution in health care, and use this vital data to improve the quality of patient care.
Vast amounts of data from genomic sequencing and electronic health records (EHRs) have the potential to radically improve the health of individual patients, but first, institutions must learn how to manage the data, and adopt uniform standards in usability that will enable them to share vital information.
This discussion was center stage at a Working Summit on Big Data hosted by The Atlantic in partnership with the Mount Sinai Health System on October 23, in New York City, at which 24 policy makers, entrepreneurs, and health care leaders shared their thoughts and experiences in harnessing petabytes of data for use in improving human health.
