Big Decisions, Big Data

January 14, 2016

Epidemico’s VP of Client Delivery, Dr. Sumiko Mekaru, was recently invited to be a panelist at the World Bank Group’s Big Decisions, Big Data: Using Big Data to Drive System Performance conference in Washington D.C on January 11th, 2016. The forum highlighted advances in data collection and analysis technology.

Sumiko shared some of our favorite big data solutions that improve population health analytics and surveillance, namely HealthMap, MedWatcher Social, and StreetRx. When it comes to addressing the challenges that accompany big data, our innovative tools support cost-effective surveillance of large and noisy data sources, offering insights in otherwise data-poor environments.
