The evolution of sensors, smart phones, medical devices, and wearables all collecting and uploading information in real-time has led to the rapid accumulation of health-related data, or Big Data. The sheer volume, velocity, and variety of the data being collected poses challenges for harnessing and ensuring its validity to benefit both the macro, population-level health and the micro, evidence-based precision medicine. Join Dr. Eric Louie, Chief Medical Officer, and Jessica Baker, Associate, as they discuss changes in healthcare data over time and how to overcome human biases, curate meaningful data sets, and better inform actionable decisions in the healthcare setting.
Your team is serious about ensuring database performance at scale. But legacy NoSQL technology could be eroding the impact of your achievements.
Following best practices for efficient data modeling, query optimization and observability is fundamental. But their power can be limited – or enhanced – by specific database capabilities. Often-overlooked database innovations can serve as a force multiplier, paving a much smoother path to speed at scale (e.g., millions of read/write operations and millisecond P99 response).
It’s not always about the numbers; it’s more about how you present them in an easily understandable way. Not everything can go into a pie chart, and not everything looks right in a line graph. That’s why it’s crucial to know the best principles of data visualization.
