What Influence Will Big Data Have on the Future of Healthcare?

A panel of experts from across sectors discuss possible applications and open questions.

From your smartphone to personal computers, from at-home genetic tests to insurance databases, there is a tremendous amount of data out there that relates to our health. Not all of it is being used yet by those who help manage our healthcare, but it’s only a matter of time before that changes. What influences will this and other data have on our health and the healthcare system at large?

In this video, you’ll hear from Jacqueline Corrigan-Curay, JD, MD (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), Brett Davis (Deloitte), Vivian Lee, MD, PhD, MBA (Verily), and Patrick Ryan, PhD (Janssen & Columbia University), with moderation from Mark Sheehan, PhD (The Ethox Centre, University of Oxford).

They spoke in the first panel at “Healthcare in the Era of Big Data: Opportunities and Challenges,” our 2-day symposium, co-presented with New York University, exploring the ethical risks and rewards of incorporating big data into the healthcare landscape.
