Big Data in Health Workshop

Collaborative Success

Supported by the University of Chicago's Big Ideas Generator (BIG), the Center for Health Administration Studies (CHAS) was proud to co-host, along with the Computation Institute (CI), a workshop for primarily UChicago faculty researchers to assemble and discuss the numerous "big data" investigative projects occurring on campus currently and potentially create new collaborative connections.

Large complex data sets relevant to advancing knowledge of health policy and services are increasingly available through open access regulations and data sharing agreements. Data science and big data analytics are needed to develop the computational tools necessary to address emerging scientific questions. Inviting researchers who focus upon these services, science and policies, is our attempt to collectively gather their expertise into a focused mission towards improved health outcomes for the community.

Video of presentations or photos from the workshop will be hosted on our videos page and our photo galleries, respectively, once available.
