Predictive Healthcare Speaker Series

Sharing lessons and perspectives on successfully implementing and integrating predictive healthcare solutions

As interest in applying the tools of data science to clinical and operational healthcare problems increases, the success of the solutions will depend on much more than the performance of a particular algorithm.

The Penn Medicine Predictive Healthcare speaker series aims to bring together a wide array of players from across the institution who have a stake in the successful operationalization of data science solutions in health care. The topics will encompass separate disciplines that come together to deliver these solutions, including:

  • Computer science
  • AI/machine learning
  • Human factors and human computer interaction
  • Real-time and big data architectures
  • Process improvement
  • Clinical/medical research
  • We hope that this speaker series and discussion forum will foster collaboration and an exchange of ideas to deliver effective predictive solutions in healthcare.
