IoT in Health Podcast S.1 Ep.8 Healthy Nevada Project

By

On this episode of the monthly IoT in Health Podcast, Ken Briodagh sits down with Jim Metcalf, Chief Data Scientist, Healthy Nevada Project, to talk about his work and how the project is working to improve population health in Nevada through tracking genetic mutations through Healthcare IoT. Researchers, doctors and data scientists from the Renown Institute for Health Innovation are using SAS (News - Alert) analytics to surface population health risks from medical records as well as patient variables such as gender, age, and personal or family health history. The platform uses advanced analytic techniques like machine learning to model public health risks ranging from disease and illness to the effects of environmental factors like air and water quality.
