The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR®), held its annual black-tie gala May 4, 2016, this time to discuss the growing trend of big data and its impact on health, science, and medicine. More than 400 guests gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington D.C., to join the conversation. Read more.
ABOUT: Revolutionizing Healthcare & Research Through Data
Patients are generating more data than ever before. Utilizing this data to improve patient care has been an ongoing topic of discussion in the health care community – but how do we move from conversation to personalized care?
How clinical data is combined with patient-generated data will redefine clinical outcomes and advance treatment decisions, particularly for women. Information from genomic testing, electronic medical records, and health technology applications is creating a virtual clearinghouse of data. Researchers will be able harness this data to facilitate more efficient and productive models of treatment and delivery, resulting in more personalized and targeted treatment and therapies.
Join us at SWHR’s Gala on May 4th, as we examine how data can be used to transform medicine from bench to bedside.
Proceeds from the event will benefit SWHR’s science, advocacy and educational programs, aimed to ensure that women’s health remains a national priority. More information coming soon.
