Big Data, Anonymization and Secondary Uses of Data**The use of big data analytics in healthcare is proliferating as large data sets of patient data are increasingly analyzed to enhance patient care, facilitate the development of life-changing therapies, and ultimately improve public health. Companies across all industries are also leveraging big data analytics to enhance their products and services, improve marketing efforts, and prevent fraud and abuse of their services. Although big data offers substantial societal and public health benefits, complex privacy and regulatory challenges must be thoroughly evaluated when analyzing aggregated purchasing behavior, consumer online activity, or medical information for secondary uses. This interactive session will offer practical tips to ensure the legal and ethical use of big data, including reviewing anonymization/de-identification methodologies, information security measures, and contractual best practices. Based on their experiences with healthcare big data initiatives, the panelists will engage the audience in a discussion of best practices and the implications across all industries.
