Monetizing Healthcare Data – The Challenges and Opportunities

7th October 2021 11am - 12pm ET Webinar

What to expect?

Join Neudata, LeapYear, and a panel of industry experts as they discuss the challenges and opportunities of monetizing a sensitive healthcare data set.

We all know that healthcare data contains important information about patterns in disease, care and therapy. We also know that this data is sensitive, subject to both HIPAA and an overall ethical need to care for the people and information in this data set.

On the 7th October we will be tackling subjects such as:

  • Why there is a need to monetize this data?
  • Why there is a need to use this data set on the buy-side?
  • What can be done to achieve the need to both protect and use this type of data?

We’ll further expand on the subject matter through use case examples and insights provided by our Gold sponsor LeapYear.
