New O'Reilly Strata Rx Conference Makes Health Data Work--Call for Proposals Open


Sebastopol, CA—May 18, 2012—How many doctors do you see, and how many different medical records in separate systems do you have? Multiply that by billions for an idea of the deluge of data threatening to overwhelm healthcare today. If we could combine and analyze it right, this bountiful data would produce healthcare solutions that achieve better patient outcomes at lower costs. The new O'Reilly Strata Rx Conference seeks to advance healthcare's use of big data so it improves treatment effectiveness and efficiency. The call for proposals has opened for Strata Rx, which happens October 16-17, 2012, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.

Strata Rx seeks solutions across traditional industry boundaries, and we invite experts in diverse areas of data and healthcare to participate. Chairs Colin Hill and Julie Steele request proposals on topics including, but in no way limited to:

  • Comparative Effectiveness Research and Health Economics
  • Data and Analytics
  • Drug Discovery
  • Evidence-based Care
  • Patient Engagement
  • Personalized Medicine
  • Public Policy
  • Value-based Reimbursement

Submit your proposal by June 7, 2012. Early registration opens in July.
