Data is key to providing modern and complex problems and providing services in a timely fashion. However, data is often stored or accessed in ways that are single-use and are difficult to extract.
Earlier this month at a national health information technology conference, the Trump Administration announced an initiative to put patients in charge of their own health care data, improve data interoperability, and encourage data-driven innovation to improve patient health and outcomes.
This afternoon, Peter L. Levin, co-founder and CEO of Amida Technology Solutions, Inc. (Amida), and former CTO at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, will discuss “Modern Data Management: Exploring the Root Problem and Way Forward,” at the first ever Washington Big Data conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
First, what is the GDPR?
The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires organizations to protect the personal data of anyone in the EU.
Amida's summer interns were a smart, talented, and diverse group. Most of them worked full-time and got hands-on experience coding, programming, performing market analyses, and even designing studies to test the usability of our software products. They also learned more broadly about open source data management, data reconciliation, and data transformation.
It seems like everyone talks about BIG DATA these days. A google search on that term gives you 266 million results - far more than any researcher on the concept can review in a meaningful way. There's even a documentary about it.
