The Innovation Economy: Information Revolution Transforming Health Care Through Big Data

Bipartisan Policy Center and Intel host interactive policy forum exploring the opportunities, challenges, and policies critical to encouraging innovation in health care through the use of big data

WASHINGTON, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and Intel Corporation invite you to an interactive policy forum exploring the opportunities, challenges and policies critical to encouraging innovation in health and health care, specifically focusing on how to effectively use large, disparate data sets and addressing concerns about privacy and security.  

This policy forum is part of the 2013 Innovation Economy series of roundtable and public forums convened in partnership with Intel, exploring the vital role of innovation in sustaining and building upon U.S. competitiveness in the global economy. This series will specifically address how the "information revolution" (i.e. growing utility of big data), has the potential to transform three industries: health care, energy and homeland security. BPC will release a paper later this year based on insights drawn from these three forums.
