Transforming Health Through Data (rescheduled!)

EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our next event will look at how data is radically impacting healthcare, medicine and health. More details coming soon.

 

6:00pm to 7:00pm Data Drinks

7:00pm to 7:10pm Introduction

7:10pm to 8:30pm Presentations

8:30pm to Drinks Specials at Clyde's across the street!

 

On an organizational note, we are excited to announce that we are restructuring the event to improve networking and facilitate interactions. We are hosting Data Drinks before the event, allotting an hour before the talks start (and if anyone wants to sponsor this, please contact us). We are also going to limit the event to 4 speakers to ensure that we have sufficient time for Q&A as we feel our members' interactions with speakers is absolutely key. For the hard core community members, we will still be changing venue and heading to a local drinking establishment to continue the discussions with Data Late Night. Please let us know what you think!

Confirmed Speakers

Joseph Abrahamson (@sdbo) is an engineer and designer interested in building friendly, ubiquitous, and powerful quantitative tools. With a background in biomedical engineering and mathematical statistics he's building Reify Health to move the bar on clinical research.

Reify Health (@reifyhealth) is building the lab bench for digital health research. Mobile technology can revolutionize the healthcare industry through patient monitoring and engagement, but the research necessary to discover effective uses of mobile technology in healthcare is currently too time-consuming and expensive. Reify is building a web platform that allows scientists and clinicians to create custom mobile health solutions without doing any programming and provides statistical tools for developers to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of their technologies. Early customers include researchers from academic medicine at institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Stanford, and Brown.

    Thanks for the great event. The presentations were pretty good, but the presenters were great to listen to afterwards as well. I was especially impressed at how friendly and easy to talk to everyone was - I'll definitely be coming out to more!

    Good speakers and discussion, and great location. In the future, I hope people will consider a panel discussion on how the mobile medical software market is evolving and should be regulated by the FDA and others, thanks.

    Some weak speakers and some strong ones. Always more interesting when presenter has a strong thesis and backs it up with data and reason.

    Yes, the meetup has been cancelled tonight due to snow (or impending snow). In fact, the weather is irrelevant; the Microsoft office where the event was to be held is officially closed. We will reschedule this meetup as soon as we can, hopefully for next week. Thank you for your patience!

    Perfect! Really looking forward to this for the networking and speakers. Just released an open source mapping of hospitals and providers that have received CMS (Medicare) payment incentives for attesting to MU 1 at hitech.socialhealthinsights.com

    I'm interested in hearing about data developments and how our vast DC fiber network can support this critical data.

  • Sean M.

    We are looking for someone interested in capturing the talks on video and getting them posted online. If you are interested in volunteering or knowing someone who could help, please let us know.

    The rest of this week is the Global Privacy Summit, so I'd love for it to stay on the 4th. . data & privacy overlap quite a bit with health.
