She covered a variety of breaking news ranging from weather, to traffic-related deaths and house fires. She took a break from her television career in the late 1990´s to establish a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and education about a little known medical condition she used to suffer from called idiopathic craniofacial erythema, also known as chronic facial blushing. She was relieved from it following a surgical procedure performed in Sweden.

Ms. Van Marter´s (formerly Christine Drury) story is documented in Dr. Atul Gawande´s New York Times bestselling book “Complications” as well as The New Yorker magazine. Ms. Van Marter also appeared on ABC´s Good Morning America with Charlie Gibson and Dr. Nancy Snyderman to share her experience with this medical condition.

Grand Ballroom 2 - Don’t Let Your Data Just Sit There, Surface It!
Many “Big Data” projects take great cost and effort to get the data landed, staged, curated, blended and certified, but the pipelines stop short, leaving the data in a state not easily consumed. The sheer size of the data, poorly performing technology or complexity of the model can make utilization slow internally and difficult to monetize externally.

Traditionally data marts have been developed to create application views. That concept is still valid, but the technology options have greatly expanded. You should now consider Indexes and APIs an effective delivery channel. I’m going to present some architecture, processes and technology that you can use to surface your data in a cost effective and high performing way. This will allow you to enable discovery and self-service of your data with governance, authorization and entitlement enforcement.

Room 302 - Query Your Raw Snowflake Data Lake With No Data Prep
A common design paradigm for a Data Lake is to ingest data into a “raw” zone with as little schema definition as possible. Often this involves landing the data in a semi-structured format, preferring a schema-on-read approach versus a schema-on-write. But when data scientists need to access this semi-structured data, it typically must be passed through a number of parsing and data prep jobs to make the data usable. In this session, I’ll demonstrate how you can use the features of Snowflake to implement the design pattern of schema-on-read, ingest semi-structured data into your Data Lake using a variety of techniques, and query your raw Data Lake zone with no parsing or data prep.

Room 205 - Privacy Law 2.0: Why data privacy law in America will never be the same
Outside of a few federally regulated industries, Data Privacy Law in the United States has historically been extraordinarily limited. Businesses have had nearly carte blanche to collect and use data about people in just about any way. Although this has led to the development of extraordinary platforms that turn data about people into real value, there is a growing sense that businesses are not trustworthy stewards of personal data. ON the heels of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect, California has enacted a groundbreaking new data protection law. Many other states and the federal government are also considering enacting their own laws that combine prominent features of the GDPR and California’s law. In this presentation, Berger will explain why GDPR and California’s laws are so different from the status quo, provide insight into the common features of laws that other states and the federal government are considering, and help participants understand how to continue to use data in innovative ways even as privacy laws tighten.

Room 303 - Accelerating Innovation in Healthcare through Simulated EHR data
Research and insights require data. Traditionally, life science and medical device companies have relied on real-world data, but numerous challenges exist in gathering, cleansing ad deidentifying that data before it can be used. We will discuss how simulated data reduces these challenges, mitigates PHI/PPI risks and may accelerate your digital transformation. Learn how we developed a process to simulate clinical data at a massive scale and recently generated a complete simulation of the US population with over 815 billion records.

Grand Ballroom 2 - Tackling the Big Data Challenges and Opportunities Present in Healthcare Innovation
The challenges associated with effective application of big data in healthcare is significant. The healthcare industry lags many of the other industries in adoption of advanced computational techniques and data sets are often kept in silos and not shared across researchers, organizations or decision makers. And while the technical challenges may be obvious, the political and collaborative barriers to implementing big data solutions are often undiscovered. Within Indiana, organizations and institutions have a history of coming together to help solve big problems. The Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI) is working to tackle health challenges related to cardio metabolic disease using resources and stimulating collaborations here in the state and beyond. This panel will explore these challenges and opportunities from multiple organizational viewpoints (industrial, institute, and academic), governance (security, privacy, and legal), and technical (data integration and analysis) and highlight the notable accomplishments that break down these barriers and drive collaborative innovation. These collaborations have already resulted in a scientific manuscript published in the special “Medicine in the Digital Age”
