The healthcare industry is under competitive and legislative pressure to reduce the cost of care, efficiently manage resources and improve patient care. Societal and technological advances are disrupting the way consumers expect to purchase and receive care. 

Technologies such as, electronic health records, mobile applications, social media and wearable devices, the internet of things, and sensors are resulting in a treasure trove of Big Data. The continued rise of chronic disease, and the push to expand access to primary care, and the ability to combine and analyze various sources of data are transforming the industry’s practices. Healthcare organizations are turning to big data analytics projects to help reduce costs and improve outcomes. 

The Big Data Symposium will feature exciting speakers who will cover topics ranging from the use of social media and mobile apps to monitor and improve healthcare to the use of Open Data sources and visualizations for healthcare advances.
