The Health Data Consortium Mission
This year’s Health Datapalooza saw conversations and keynotes that inspired and challenged us. The work is far from done, and we have a lot to do in the year ahead to catapult this movement forward. Here’s a short recap of what happened, in case you missed any of it.
It’s hard to hide from the data – obesity is a growing and global challenge we must collectively fight. Today, the adult obesity rate in England is almost 25 percent and projected to affect 60 percent of adult men and 50 percent of women by 2050. Over one-third of U.S. adults are obese. The data on childhood obesity in both nations are also quite dismal. To chip away at the problem, we need a collaborative effort to find creative, data-driven solutions within and beyond the traditional health care community. Developers (yes, you!) we need your innovative solutions to save lives in both nations!
We would all like to think that what we’re working on will have a lasting impact when we’re gone. George Thomas’ legacy endures, as a collaborator, enterprise architect and data science innovator. Bernadette Hyland, now founder and CEO of GeoHealth.US, first met George when he served as the Chief Data Architect in the Office of the CIO at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 2010, when they were both working on projects to publish high-quality, open government data.
