IQPC’S Big Data - Implications and Opportunities for Healthcare Summit lays pathway for healthcare industry to realize integration of a fully operational centralized ‘database’ for healthcare professionals.

August 27 to 29, 2012 in Boston

Medical professionals, radiologists and IT professionals are moving toward integrating ‘centralized databases’ in their practices and hospitals with 2012 set to be a “boom year” for big data.

Healthcare IQ, a division of IQPC, announces the Big Data – Implications and Opportunities for Healthcare Summit, to be held August 27 to 29, 2012 in Boston, MA.

Medical professionals, radiologists and IT professionals are moving toward integrating ‘centralized databases’ in their practices and hospitals with 2012 set to be a “boom year” for big data.

Since 2004, the technology that would enable healthcare professionals to transmit mass volumes of information, imagery and big data on a global scale has been an unrealized strategic tool. A lack of standardization and interoperability with the available solutions as well the burden of compliance with privacy laws and policy have made integration of a fully operational database for healthcare professionals difficult to achieve. Technology applications are not yet bridging the gap between concept and solution.

The industry is set for change as medical schools, radiologists and healthcare professionals push for separate centralized databases to provide a more efficient way to transfer imagery. Several information technology companies are pushing to be the major messaging standard and solution providers are jostling to be the major security and IT platform providers that healthcare facilities and medical schools use.

With much work to be done to integrate a fully operational database, the IQPC Big Data – Implications and Opportunities for Healthcare Summit brings together healthcare industry leaders and innovative thought leaders who will provide insights and solutions on:

  •     complying with HIPAA privacy and security policies for ways to benefit both patients and healthcare organizations
  •     understanding industry standardization and interoperability of databases through radiology use and implementation initiatives
  •     avoiding costly integration of new software that is later not compatible with other centralized databases
  •     leveraging Big Data to boost performance and make better management decisions
  •     improving processes and overcome the lack of operational readiness that could hinder physicians and healthcare providers from success
