HCSC at Summit: Delivering Big Data Value in Health Insurance

With the San Jose DataWorks Summit (June 13-15) just a month away, we’re busy finalizing the lineup of an impressive array of speakers and business use cases. This year our Enterprise Adoption Track will include Andy Ashta from Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC).

Big Data is driving major advances in the health insurance industry, resulting in increased productivity and cost savings that help support HCSC’s mission to stand by its members, in sickness and in health. Advances in instrumentation and automation are generating data from myriad new sources, including wearable monitors, genomic data, and geolocation signals. Combining those sources with human-generated data—such as prescriptions, call center logs, and web clickstreams—gives health insurance carriers a wealth of new analytical insights that are transforming the health insurance industry as a whole.


At San Jose DataWorks Summit, join HCSC presenter Andy Ashta for his talk on the importance of organizational alignment while rolling out Big Data technologies at a major health insurance company:


The business and technology teams within a health insurer must align the company’s central data platform with its data strategy. That requires substantial organizational alignment. Hear the firsthand perspective from Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC), the largest customer-owned health insurance company in the United States. The speaker will cover how they integrated membership information, regulatory compliance, and the general ledger, to improve overall healthcare management. At HCSC, the strong alignment between executive leadership, business portfolio direction, architectural strategy, technology delivery, and program management have helped create leading-edge capabilities which help the company respond nimbly to a quickly evolving healthcare industry. This session is a talk in our Enterprise Adoption track. The track focuses on Apache Atlas, Apache Hadoop, Apache Nifi and is geared towards CXO and Architect audiences.
