I am involved quite a bit with O'Reilly stuff and although I don't live in the U.S, I thought I'd mention a really interesting conference coming up, Strata RX, which aims to improve healthcare through acquiring, analysing and applying big-data, which is a big-thing these days, pun intended. There will be some interesting speakers and topics, which you can find at the website, but I am looking forward to the webcasts which will give us an insight and how innovation, technology and healthcare synergises. I personally am a big fan of us taking control of our health in a more scientific way, and after social media, this should be the next push and initiative. Crowd-pushing of health.
At Strata Rx you'll discover how data experts are successfully using data to advance personalized and predictive medicine; realize significant cost savings; and conduct research that points to entirely new products and markets—and how you can apply what they've learned to your organization.
