Data Science Transforms Health Care
Date: Tuesday February 12, 2013
Time: 6:00pm to 8:30pm
Place: University of Colorado Denver - North Classroom #1539 - 1200 Larimer Street Denver, CO 80217-3364 - Map: http://bit.ly/Tyznzg...
This event explores how data science will help us restructure the business of health care more effectively around outcomes and how it will transform the practice of medicine by personalizing for each specific patient.
Just as Google transformed advertising with new uses of data and analysis, health care is ripe for a similar transformation as new tools, techniques, and data sources are available. Data science has the potential to help us make better policy and resource decisions at lower cost and make improved medical decisions based on a patient's specific biology.
