    Presentation: The Myths and Truths about AI
    Rado Kotorov
    It is no question that AI can deliver value. And yet, according to Gartner, more than 85% of projects will fail. Failure happens when you undertake an AI initiative based on hype and myths. We will demystify this for you and give you road-maps to success.

    Presentation: Healthcare Price Transparency data challenges
    Paul Boal
    Healthcare costs in the United States account for 18% of the GDP and climbing. More than half of all bankruptcies are attributed at least in part to unexpected medical expenses. What individual patients and insurance companies pay for the same service at the same hospital can vary by many multiples. The healthcare industry has some of the least understood economics, but that’s beginning to change. Beginning with new regulations for hospitals in January 2021 and continuing with follow-on regulations for health insurance carriers in 2022 and 2023, federal regulations are requiring transparency in the pricing of healthcare service fees, insurance premiums, and coverage. The implementation of these first regulations has been a data engineer’s worst nightmare! No standards. No consistent data model or domains. No governance. As usual, “there’s gold in them-thar hills,” though. In this session, we’ll discuss what some in the industry are doing to standardize this data, the insights they’re gaining, and the impact they’re having on reducing the cost of healthcare for all.

    11:45-12:00
