Explorys is a spinout from the Cleveland Clinic which has raised $14.5 million as a major play in Big Data analytics for health. Last year Charlie showed us how they used a massive database of patient experience to inform very specific (anonymous) clinical research. Now more and more their data is being used used directly for clinical care support–and they’re also bringing in patient contributed data, linking to yesterday’s themes. Of course this is all easy for Charlie who spent the last ten years building Big Data for interactive television at Everstream.
Exploring the new technologies that are reconstructing care delivery including ACOs, new physician tools, innovations in payment models, and more.
We talked with Charlie Lougheed, President and CTO at Explorys, about the biggest challenges, trends and developments in health care technology at the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall Conference.

Explorys is a spinout from the Cleveland Clinic. It just raised $11.5m and is spending it on the infrastructure to pull data from multiple systems and multiple hospitals together to create a massive database of patient experience. You’ll see that it has the capacity to both inform very specific (anonymous) clinical research as well as to be used directly for clinical care support.
With federal dollars funding comparative effectiveness research and health plans, providers, pharma, and consumer product companies mining vast amounts of health data – how will our system become smarter? At the San Francisco Fall Conference 2011 we heard from the leaders in the new world of analytics and asked the question: Can Big Data inform better decisions for better health care outcomes?
