Question & Answer – Dreaming of Data

Julia Winn, Alessio Signorini, Dan Kogan, Kevin Callahan and Dave Fauth respond to questions about open source data, specific or exploratory data analysis, and analysis tools/scientific computing frameworks.

BetterFit Technologies – Dreaming of Data

Julia Winn demos BetterFit Technologies, which creatively removes patient anonymity from health care.  Automated, adaptive text message communication system stays in touch with patients in-between appointments, and prediction technology allow doctors, patients, and insurers to make personalized and informed decisions about courses of treatment and prescription adjustment.

The Well Woman: Reproductive Health in the 21st Century – BetterFit Technologies Demo

Julie Winn, Founder & CEO of BetterFit Technologies, introduces us to their website which allows women to compare different types of birth control. First women create a profile, which is compared to other women in their database in order to recommend a birth control that might be a better fit to that women’s individual health.

Patients 2.0: BetterFit Technologies

Julia Winn is a recent graduate of Harvard College, where she studied computer science and molecular biology–without needing to cheat! She founded BetterFit Technologies in November of 2011 when she built the first consumer prototype after data-mining nearly 100,000 comments from health discussion forums.

Patient 2.0: The Patient Shark Tank

Patient communities are emerging as key influencers and disrupting the healthcare landscape. They are impacting strategies, policies, and setting the stage for new patient-centric innovations. Patients are now sought after thought leaders influencing the way healthcare systems think about and interact with patients and prodding them to improve the patient experience. Join us as ePatient judges rate new technology exclusively from the patient perspective and innovators build the perspective of patients into the innovations designed to serve them.The ultimate goal is to incorporate the voice of patient into the design, development or enhancement of technology being developed by the healthcare community and move away from the notion: “If you build it they will come”. As each innovator pitches their concept or technology, our patient panelists will ask targeted questions based on their experiences to understand how the innovation uniquely responds to patient needs and how it will reach patients. Patient panelists will score the technology based on the following categories:
– How well does it define and solve a problem?
– Patient User Experience
– Data Handling
– Patient-Centricity/Involvement
– Engagement/retention – Is the patient going to be motivated to use this product/service? How sustainable is this solution?
– Connectivity to other systems and/or healthcare team
