In an age of extensive medical exploration and testing, the number of clinical trials and ongoing research projects have shot through the laboratory roof! Yet this wealth of information has been ineffectively distributed, going unseen in by colleagues and unused by potential patients. This breakout demonstrates how a handful of creative minds are making the clinical data and medical trials of today easily accessible for the medical enhancement of tomorrow.
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.
