Public releases of government weather and geo-location data are driving innovation and investment across the technology sector. Recent public releases of government health care data are creating a massive market opportunity for innovators and startups, with potential to dwarf the disruption created by public weather and geolocation data. RowdMap, Inc. and others have filed Freedom of Information Act requests and the government agencies have delivered. CMS has made historic data releases including the largest data set of doctors and hospitals in history to support identifying provider practice patterns with national and regional benchmarks in order to transition the delivery of care to value based payments. https://www.cms.gov/Newsroom/MediaReleaseDatabase/Press-releases/2015-Press-releases-items/2015-06-01.html
Joshua Rosenthal, PhD will deliver a keynote address, entitled, “More than a Disruptive Fad: How to Create Market Value and Avoid Obsolescence with Government Health Data.” This keynote address will focus on how to use public health care data to create and innovate around products, services and businesses across consumerism and consumer-directed health care as well as Business to Business (B2B) businesses in government markets and value-based medical economic models. The keynote address will also explore the perils of failing to incorporate or understand the impact of these new and powerfully disruptive data sources for traditional companies focused on amortizing investments in legacy systems and business models.
“Aneesh Chopra and Todd Park are icons, and, as Chief Technology Officers of the United States, each recognized the truly transformative power of public health care data for the US health care delivery system. Now, it's up to us to deliver on that potential, the promise of creating market value and public and social good through open innovation to a degree that dwarfs the impact of open weather and geolocation data we’ve seen in other verticals,” said Joshua Rosenthal, Chief Scientific Officer, RowdMap, Inc. “Open innovation and disruption grounded in public data is an open door to pure play technology companies, whether startups or status quos, to get into the health care space, to avoid the pitfalls of legacy black boxes and to make an immediate and marked impact.”
