A Pill Can’t Help Contain Cost
How does one contain costs when payments are tied to medical codes. And every division of every company in every state that you service, sings from a different hymnal. It is very easy to miss information if you are not looking for it. And it requires a boatload of analyst to find that dozen, or so, unusual or negative pieces of information from the billions of transactions that move thru your systems. And as good as they are, things fall thru the cracks. In the healthcare industry, mistakes are costly, data needs to be defendable. Come listen to how Paxata has helped.

Natural Networks: A New Way to Design and Manage Provider Networks

There is evidence that when providers collaborate in the care of patients they achieve both better cost and better quality outcomes.  Currently there are no tools available to identify and leverage existing collaboration among providers to deliver greater value to health plan members through lower costs and/or better quality. With Natural Networks™, we aim to change that. 

Learn how we are applying graph analytics to identify existing clusters of provider collaboration and evaluate their performance to help inform provider network design (whether for the increasing trend towards high performance networks (HPNs), or next generation accountable care organizations (ACOs)) and network management (whether by designing centers of excellence (CoEs), or helping identify best practice).

Never Trust the RoboDocs! (Or Should You?)
Robots may never completely replace doctors and nurses, but machine learning is nevertheless transforming the healthcare industry by improving diagnostics and predicting outcomes. But while healthcare is all about trust, machine learning models often are black boxes – which makes it inherently difficult to trust them. How do patients and doctors know that they can trust predictions from a model that they cannot understand? 

Transparency in machine learning models is critical in high stakes decisions, like those made every day in healthcare. This presentation will cover all important phases of data science including the ingestion of data, the cleaning and blending of data sets, finding the best models for the task, validating the quality of those models, and finally putting them into production. We will demonstrate, how analysts can achieve highly accurate models in a way that allows others to understand the results of their work.  In particular, we will create a predictive model and validate its correctness without writing a single line of code and in an hour instead of weeks or months.

Person Centered Analytics: Integrating health and human services data to drive strategy, improve outcomes, and build an analytics system
The Department of Human Services has been building an analytics system (both from a cultural and technical perspective) to support the integration of health and human services programs and data around the improvement of individual health outcomes. This system relies on combining claims and health outcome data from all of the State of MN and Federal public medical assistance programs (Medicaid, Medicare, Minnesota Care….) with program utilization data from the other human services systems we oversee (such as the cash and food assistance programs, child protection and welfare, child care….).  The goal is to have a health and human services system that is driven by analytics in order to improve service delivery, public accountability, and population outcomes.

Patient-Generated Data and Precision Medicine
Data science is rapidly growing in many industries, including healthcare. However, the amount of healthcare information available for longitudinal research is often relatively small, with only sporadic data being available for any single patient. For example, information within the electronic health record (EHR) is typically obtained at large time intervals (usually hours or days), and nearly no data are captured from patients between healthcare encounters.

In this session, Dr. Schulz will describe the benefits of incorporating patient-generated data into clinical care and translational research. He will also describe how other large data sets can be combined with this information to advance precision medicine. From a technical perspective, this session will describe how Yale New Haven Health has worked to collect patient-generated data and integrate provider-generated data, such as genomics and continuous patient monitoring, into their data science platform.

Big Data, Big Opportunities: The Case for Managed Care Organizations Publishing Their Insights
Managed care organizations (MCOs) have vast amounts of data from myriad sources about the real-worldhealth care and the costs of services for the millions of customers whose health and wellbeing they helpserve. MCOs also have large data analytic operations by which to generate clinical and business insights.In this presentation, we advocate that MCOs take the next step of publishing in peer reviewed journals theprojects they undertake, not only to advance the standing of the organization, but to improve the state ofhealth services science.

We describe our own efforts at Cigna to disseminate this sort of information,which involved contracting with a medical writer. We also describe how one of several resultingpublications, specifically focused on treating opiate use disorder, started with an initial research questionand lead to benefit design considerations and care management decisions.

Network Analytics for Narcotic Safety Initiatives
The opioid epidemic – which is the rapid increase in the use of opioid drugs in US is considered the worst drug crisis in America. It is estimated that every day 91 Americans die due to opioid overdose. The government and various health care organizations are coming together to tackle this huge problem. Health care plans are designing various programs to help reduce the opioid overutilization. Analytics plays a key role in the identification of fraud and abuse and also monitoring the utilization. In this talk, we talk about the Opioid epidemic, what health plans are doing to address it, and how advanced analytics such as network analytics are used as tools to aid this process.

Using the Patient’s Voice to Bring Big Data to Life
We are in the midst of a trend where growth in electronic medical records and claims systems — together with advances in computing power — has led to the creation of large data assets that are an important source of information about clinical events and their associated costs and utilization.At the same time this data explosion is occurring, there is great momentum in the area of patient centeredness, with important advancements in the science and technology used for capturing reliable information directly from patients. 

However, it is rare for patient-centered data to be represented at scale in the leading big data assets. Are we relying too much on integrated claims and electronic medical record data as the evidence base for answering our questions about health and healthcare?  Will these claims and clinical data sources advance or limit our progress toward a patient-centered approach to delivering care and evaluating outcomes?

This presentation will address the confluence of patient-centeredness and big data, and explore how Optum is meeting the needs of our partners to bring together the voice of the patient with our data-driven solutions.

Analyzing the Patient Care Continuum: 99M patients, Hadoop and Spotfire
Managing patient outcomes is becoming business critical for care providers, payers and the medtech industry. Registries are difficult and expensive to build but needed for true patient reported outcomes analysis. Before large investments are made we need to analyze a proxy of the opportunity to see if it makes sense to build these. This presentation will cover using deidentified complete longitudinal patient  data on 99 million patients over the course of 8 years, leveraging Hadoop for storage, Impala for querying and Spotfire for advanced slice and dice reporting. This process allows queries to go from many hours of processing to minutes and democratizes data and analytics.

EHR in Medical Research, From a Tower of Babel to Coherent Real World Evidence
Data scientists and technologies have made notable progress towards overcoming the initial barriers to utilizing electronic medical record (EMR) data for the purposes of medical research.  However, inherent features of EMR data provide further hurdles for researchers attempting to draw valid inferences. This presentation will describe barriers and solutions to generating coherent real world evidence from EMR data with an applied example assessing cardiovascular risks associated with hypoglycemia. 

The discussion will focus on epidemiological methods to address ambiguous observation periods (duration and completeness of data), algorithm building (including special considerations for natural language processing of the free text clinical notes), and quantitative analysis (including analytic considerations for bias and confounding).

Innovation Networks and Regional Competitiveness in Med Tech / Biotech
Human capital is a critical resource in advanced technology. The ability of a region to compete on a global scale is dependent on a highly skilled labor supply. Innovation networks are a "force multiplier" for converting technical expertise into enterprise value. We can identify and quantify innovation networks using graph theory.

In this session, we'll use patent analytics to evaluate collaborative innovation in the U.S. med tech / biotech space from a regional perspective. Regional planners and economic developers can use this perspective to promote and improve regional competitiveness. Corporate planners and leaders can apply this perspective at the enterprise level to improve performance and increase enterprise value.

As a related concept, we'll explore the relevance of this approach for the Amazon site search that is currently challenging regional planners across the continent to differentiate the potential value of their locations.

Representation Learning and Healthcare
Healthcare costs are predicted to become unsustainable, and yet we as a human society aspire to have perfect healthcare for everyone. Can artificial intelligence come to the rescue? Can computer systems make accurate predictions of human health, and suggest preventative and therapeutic measures to manage the burden of disease in a reliable and cheap manner? How would an artificially intelligent system that can make meaningful decisions, like say the personalized health plan for an individual, be designed? Do the internet of things and machine learning techniques have any role in creating this AI? 

The world today has machine learning systems and artificially intelligent systems taking over the burden of making some critical decisions. Self-driving cars; algorithms that automatically classify digital text information; automatically categorize and tag photographs; identify fraud in banking software; invest financial assets automatically; etc. are all examples of somewhat intelligent systems aiding humans in making decisions that would otherwise take manual examination of a large amount of data. But can algorithms be trained to see even more complex patterns in data, that typically only humans have been able to? Can we train algorithms that take on real risk, like prescribing a treatment plan to a person? 

The most cutting-edge work in AI today is happening in a field called representation learning. The genesis of this sub-field of AI and machine learning work, has been inspired from cognitive neuroscience, and how the human brain manages to make many complex decisions quite effortlessly, and with only about 20 watts of power. A datacenter running machine learning algorithms consumes several kilowatts of power. 

This talk will give a background in representation learning. Why learning representations of raw data could boost the performance of traditional neural networks in accomplishing complex pattern-matching and decision-making tasks. We will talk about how such representations could be generated from raw-data streams and how they would enable semi-supervised and reinforcement-learning (learning from experience), in neural networks. Finally, we will look at how such techniques could be applied to processing data common in the healthcare industry and what types of outcomes could we hope to achieve.

Novel Approaches to the Study of Heart Failure Using Medical Records
Heart failure (HF) is the #1 cause of hospitalization in the US. Yet HF can be tough to study, with many recent trials stopping early without results, or completed with suspect data, making conclusions impossible. Recent successful trials in HF required thousands of patients, and took more than 5 years to complete. While Real-World Evidence (RWE) research using claims data is possible for some diseases, HF is too heterogeneous, and requires a more complete picture from an electronic health record (EHR). With recent advances, aggregated EHR may be mature enough to be considered as alternative to prospective trials. 

We describe our efforts to simulate a ‘virtual trial’ in a selected HF cohort with one such aggregated EHR data set. Our team used data from diagnoses, procedures, labs, medications, and other information extracted from clinician notes. We first applied medical guideline definitions, then worked through scenarios to adjust for missing data. I will describe our results with multiple methods to simulate a clinical trial, and characterize potential applications for other areas of study.

The Science of Sweet Dreams: Predicting Sleep Efficiency from Wearable Device Data

Sleep research is a translational science field, and can greatly benefit from improved computational technologies.  Automated, robust, interpretable, and high-fidelity models are vital to its success. The pervasive adoption of wearable devices provides a unique opportunity.  Wearable devices monitor a user for an extended period of time and can generate a large amount of data. The current sleep analysis processes are manual and unable to scale, creating a bottleneck for sleep research. Automation allows for immediate analysis on large-scale clinical trials, and provides a platform for affordable widespread population screening of sleep disorders. Particularly for population screening, it is critical that the methods and knowledge extracted are generalizable and thus robust to noise and variance amongst sub-populations.  For example, teenagers follow very different sleep patterns compared to the elderly. Moreover, sleep experts use software tools such as ActiLife to manually annotate datasets.  This leaves the data interpretation prone to human error.

This talk presents a translational science approach to human health through sleep analysis, creating novel state-of-the-art computer science algorithms to empower clinicians and patients alike. We introduce the basics of sleep science, highlighting the computing challenges in the field, and proposing computational solutions to improve the sleep science process. By providing tools for sleep and activity behavior analysis, clinical decision- makers can deliver improved and informed healthcare.  Moreover, this research also empowers patients from a quantified-self perspective, by conveying real-time recommendations to optimize productivity and improve quality of life.

Emerging Technologies Bring Unlimited Potential Insights – How Do We Get Unlimited Value from These Insights Without Incurring Unlimited Costs?
In modern analytical ecosystems, the analytics and data science development challenges begin with data discovery end with unclear vision on how to operationalize the outcomes. An inordinate amount of time is spent on the up-front activities of data identification, capture and curation, delaying the time to analytic development.

This session will share best practices for accelerating the time to analysis and model development while establishing a foundation to enable a smooth transition to an operationalized solution. Included will be maximising the value of enterprise data while enabling more agile integration of new, undiscovered kinds of data at the speed of data generation.

Finally, we will explore different facets to simplifying the operationalizing process will be presented, including proven governance frameworks with which to ensure data swamps don’t consume the enterprise, and raising costs and complexity to maintain.

Modeling and Operationalizing Social Determinants of Health
Identifying and managing population risk is fundamental to healthcare organizations that are financially responsible for cost of care. Existing clinical analytics methods to understand future risk in a population primarily rely on historical claims and clinical data. As a result, population health interventions primarily focus on the underlying clinical needs of the population. 

Numerous research organizations posit that between 60-90% of health outcomes are driven by non-clinical factors, but these factors are largely unstudied and unknown at micro-segmented or individual consumer levels. 

Join this session to learn how Carrot Health is applying robust consumer and market data to advanced analytic methods to improve the healthcare market's understanding of the Social Determinants of Health. We will demonstrate how this new level of insight can be used to inform population health initiatives.

What You Need to Know: Privacy, Confidentiality and Transparency in a Data-Driven World
With big data, comes big responsibility. As more organizations adapt data driven approaches, greater awareness is needed in how data should be managed to reduce risk and comply with regulatory standards. It’s a general expectation that sensitive and personal information will be kept private and confidential. It’s also expected that organizations know and understand key policies, regulations, and laws that guide the use of data. These include things such as HIPAA, Safe Harbor, and PCI Standards in the US, and coming soon to Europe, GDPR.  Maintaining information securely, using it appropriately, and ensuring that transparency exists is good business. In this session, we will explore these topics and how we, as responsible data professionals, play a role in applying these themes to managing and providing data.

Utilizing Electronic Health Record for Genetic Research
Geisinger Health system (GHS) is an integrated health care provider located in central and northeastern PA with an established electronic health record (EHR) that captures a median of 14 years of health data. The Geisinger MyCode® initiative started in 2007 as a system-wide biobanking program. Through a collaboration with the Regeneron Genetic Center (the Geisinger-Regeneron DiscovEHR collaboration,) whole exome sequence and genome wide genotype data is available from more than 90,000 MyCode® participants. The integration of genomic and EHR data provides an ideal platform for precision health. Analysis from 50,000 sequenced participants identified more than 4 million rare single nucleotide variants and insertion-deletion events, of which over 176,000 are predicted to result in loss of gene function.

To promote collaboration, we developed an open-access DiscovEHR web browser accessable through discovehrshare.com.  In this browser, variant frequency data is made publicly available to enable allele frequency comparisons with other population-based and biobank resources. In 2015 the MyCode DNA repository became CLIA certified, thus allowing samples to be used for clinical testing. We have also deposited CLIA-confirmed rare variants with clinical relevance from our “Geisinger-76” based on the ACMG 56 genes with additional 20 genes selected by Geisinger as clinically actionable. To date, 4.4% of MyCode participants harbor deleterious variants in these 76 genes and we have begun to return the results to more than 180 of our patients. In conclusion, The GHS MyCode project has created a unique biorepository that enables precision medicine research. For this presentation, I will also present some of the projects currently ongoing in my lab.

Two Use-cases and a Summary: AI in Health for Diabetes and Communicable Disease
A surge in health care data, including electronic health records and medical sensor data, is providing new opportunities to uncover data-driven insights and patterns of disease using machine learning techniques. Sanjay Joshi and Karen Hayrapetyan will present a summary of AI in Health and two separate use cases that could reduce cost and increase care.

The first use case is predicting diabetes hospital readmissions using H2O's gradient boosted trees using the diabetes dataset from 130 US hospitals For the second use case we present a geo-spatial forecasting system for seasonal communicable disease that has the potential to aid public health planning and help reduce the impact of outbreaks, specifically for time-series forecasts of Influenza-like illness (ILI) encounters at county and zip-code levels with increased performance compared to conventional systems that predict ILI incidents at isolated spatial scales
