Event organized by Dawn Van Dam (Executive Director of One Million Solutions in Health)
The original I-Study panel wrote: Clearly “big data” software will play a major and enabling role in genomic interpretation. Today, however, the conceptual gap between the technology players and this application area is wide and the pick-up is slow. We call for a series of workshops and public reports between the technology leaders in big data, and each of the study’s 12 sectors, to help close this gap. Overall, this could speed the adoption and value-add of these transformational technologies.
Participants at the I-Study Think Tank were called on to be inspirational and to be inspired by the thought leaders, visionaries and industry luminaries who were present at this event. CHA will publish the group’s recommendations to help jump-start our collective efforts in ‘Big Data for Genomic Healthcare’. We strictly limited the attendance at this Think Tank to senior-level executives from academic, government, not-for-profit and industry organizations. That is, only those who have the ability and the power to ‘take action’ and move their organizations in new directions. Appropriate titles, of course, were: C-level, President, General Manager, Executive Director, Senior VP, Vice President, Senior Director, Board Member, etc.
