Conference ‘Demonstrating Results of Big Data initiatives in Healthcare’

- 22nd January 2018

Are you a clinical researcher or a medical practitioner interested in the application of future technologies in your field? Are you a decision maker in the healthcare domain interested in seeing results of big data analytics projects and initiatives?  

This conference is for you. The AEGLE project organizes the clustering conference ‘Demonstrating Results of Big Data initiatives in Healthcare’. The conference will take place on May 17th & 18th 2018 at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

During this conference national and European initiatives and start-ups who develop big data solutions in healthcare will demonstrate their work to potential users. Participants will present problems faced in current care and demonstrate how their big data solutions address these problems.

Technical aspects are merely one of the barriers for successful adoption of big data analytics in clinical practice. Other issues that these initiatives face are ethical and legal challenges, the cost-effectiveness of the solutions, usability and standardization. Therefore, attendees will also present how they have addressed these challenges in their initiative.
