Delivering on the Promise of Precision Medicine via Hortonworks

Last month, at our DataWorks Summit in San Jose, we were treated to a host of keynote speakers from a variety of industries, all leveraging the power of Big Data and Hortonworks to usher in groundbreaking, and even life-saving, transformation to their respective industries.

One of the speakers was Dr. Wade Schulz, Resident Physician and Senior Solutions Architect at Yale-New Haven Health. Wade was one of our Data Hero Finalists and winner of IBM’s inaugural Cognitive Honors award. IBM Cognitive Honors seeks to recognize individuals making noteworthy advances in AI/machine learning within their company or organization. Check out IBM’s blog announcement here.

Yale-New Haven has developed a continuous patient monitoring solution that stores 6-9 billion data points per month. This has resulted in nearly 50% alarm noise reduction and the data lake provides the foundation for numerous academic and health studies focused on patient care.

Wade’s keynote was one of the highlights of Day 1. I’ve posted it below, check it out! It’s probably one of the more beneficial things you’ll watch on YouTube today.

Title: Enabling Precision Medicine with Healthcare Data Science Platforms.
Abstract: From wearable devices to whole genome sequencing, data science and precision medicine are now integral to nearly every area of healthcare. The ability to integrate clinical and laboratory data into a cohesive data lake offers the potential to drive new discoveries. Hear from Dr. Schulz, a physician scientist at Yale School of Medicine, on how Hadoop and other data science technologies will transform healthcare delivery and biomedical research with real-time and prescriptive analytics.
