Thank you. I've moved to San Francisco so I'll be absent at events from now on but will do my best to stay in touch with members.

Data Scientist Professional Obligations
Data scientists will play an important role in health care in the future. One role and professional obligation of the data scientist is to disclose flaws in models and data quality.
As data size increases, more statistically significant relationships are found - yet the opportunity for spurious correlations and causality error increases. Big data means more noise and greater difficulty finding the small signal/needle in a very large haystack. Easy to be fooled by randomness and create the illusion of insightful relationships.

Healthcare DW/BI/Data Analytics Start-up Idea
Healthcare institutions are becoming more dependent upon data to address clinical, operational and research needs as well as growing regulatory requirements, but many do not have the database infrastructure or the quality reporting applications in place to effectively access and interpret high-value data when and how they need it.
Design and build data warehouses, data analytical platforms and reporting systems that can integrate the complex clinical concepts of evidence-based medicine to transform healthcare data into meaningful, actionable views.
Offer the data warehouse / analytical platform services in combination with data science consultancy services to aid health care organizations in moving to new care delivery models. Manage health data.
