Big Data, Little Data, My Data

Big Data, Little Data, My Data – Our First Trend Week

Big Data, Little Data, My Data


The advancements in data collection have risen exponentially over the last few years, revealing a world of possibilities in the quantified self, health care and data analytics. From sequencing our DNA, to wearables, to tracking our every step we are looking at a radical shift in health care.

The question we are exploring this week at the Center for Innovation is: How will this data improve, or change, health care? We are going to dig into the differences between the quantified self and the qualified self. We'll look through the importance of the analytics of data to deliver better outcomes, and many other areas of focus around the changing landscape of data and health care.

We would love for you to share your thoughts with us as well. What do you think big data will change for patients? Will the "little data" of our own trackable data change behaviors? Will "my data" empower patients to better health and interactions with their providers?

Send us an email to with the subject "Trend Week" and we'll share it with our online community, and keep this conversation going throughout the 1st Quarter of 2015.

For inspiration, here is Eric Dishman, founding member of Intel’s Digital Health Group, speaking at Transform 2014:
