The Impact of Big Data

International Symposium on Big Data in Medicine, Nov 20-21, 2017 at the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) in Potsdam

Big Data looks set to become a game-changer for healthcare and is likely to have a groundbreaking effect in all areas – from health service to population health management and from prevention to treatment and care. Yet, though there are many positive effects to be expected, numerous questions also arise: How will the way doctors and hospitals work change in future? What new questions arise for patients with Big Data – for example, how can the loud call for data security be answered?

HIMSS IMPACT provides concrete information on the current state of play. Delegates will also hear about and get an opportunity to discuss the new Healthcare requirements.

Relevance of Big Data

For patients: Big Data has the capacity to enable more powerful forms of personalized medicine. What can we do to build trust in patients so that they feel comfortable for their data to be used? What needs to be done to ensure that patient data is protected?

For healthcare providers: The use of Big Data will have far-reaching effects on hospitals and healthcare organizations. It will fundamentally change the way that clinicians and hospitals work. This will have a considerable knock-on effect on the way healthcare organizations are structured.

For industry: The advent of Big Data will change how healthcare institutions are organized and will create shifts in the way they manage information. The industry has to adapt to meet these changes: pharma companies, for example, need to interact with patients much closer as a result of the more personalized, targeted forms of medicine that Big Data is bringing into being.

For healthcare insurance companies: Health insurance companies will need to set up new payment models to align with the new Big Data-driven healthcare world. How can they find their place in this new digitally driven world and how can they gain competitive advantage and lead their industry in the coming years?

Today, latest diagnostic advances allow to acquire huge amounts of medical data within a short period of time. However, the transformation of these raw data into meaningful medical insights is still a global challenge. Therefore, we need to apply a completely new way of interdisciplinary cooperation to deal with knowledge engineering, privacy and security, and health information exchange. HIMSS Impact supports the exchange of international experts to unleash the power of Big Data.
