As Anna McCollister-Slipp learned to manage and live with her Type 1 Diabetes, she became profoundly motivated to improve health care research through data analysis. As time went on and Anna continued to feel her needs as a patient were going unmet, she focused her work to building platforms, one of which she demoed at Health 2.0, that began to democratize access to and understanding of complex health data. She showed Health 2.0 Galileo Cosmos, a visual data analytics platform that allows the user to explore data in real-time. Her hope is that by properly capturing the “big picture” through big data, patients will stop being out of focus.
