Reflections on Medical Informatics World

I thought I would share a few items from last month’s Medical Informatics World 2015.  This was my first time attending the event, and I really enjoyed it.  Cambridge Healthtech Institute lined up a great group of topics and speakers that really covered the landscape of informatics.  They recorded my keynote, which can be seen here:

I also delivered a separate talk on enterprise architecture, which I will post separately later.  And I got the opportunity to share the stage with some of my favorite industry speakers during two panel discussions.

My Health Analytics Talk

This past summer, I was fortunate enough to be asked to deliver one of the keynote addresses at the first Health Analytics Symposium conference.  Afterwards, a number of people asked for copies of my materials, which I’m fine to provide except no one ever knows what I said around each slide, and the slides themselves are far from self-explanatory.  So I managed to get a partial recording of my presentation, and have posted it here for those that might be interested.  Note that some of this content will be in my upcoming book on health analytics. More on that later.
