Data analysis firm says it has been working on the ‘biggest data project’ in history
SIPRI, a data analytics firm based in New York, says it’s working on “the biggest data project in history” after the US government announced it would begin releasing data on people’s health information to the public.
The company said its data analysis platform, called HealthData, was used to analyse data for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other public agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
“We’re building the largest data project that exists,” said Michael Orenstein, SIPRI’s CEO.
“This project will be a boon to public health and research across the country.
It will help the nation and the world learn about how we are all connected, how we use data to shape health, and ultimately, how to make the most of our collective digital resources to create healthier and more sustainable lives.”
The company has used the HealthData platform to create a huge database of health information from over 100 million individuals.
The first phase of the project is now complete, and it’s expected to be finished by 2020.
HealthData, which has a database of more than 400 million individual health records, is being built using a new type of data called data analytics.
“In the past few years, the health data industry has exploded,” Orensteinsaid.
“For the first time ever, we are bringing this massive, high-quality data set to the people who care about their health.”
HealthData is a data analysis tool which analyses and analyzes the data gathered through data sources such as health-care providers, health insurance providers, and employers.
“It’s not a database that has been created by a doctor,” Oresin said.
“We are going to build it for the people.”
“We’ll build it to the highest quality level possible, and we’re working on that.”‘
It’s a tremendous challenge’The company, which is based in Manhattan, is based on the premise that data should be used for good, rather than to provide profit.
“The most important thing for us is that it’s a challenge that we’re willing to take on, and not just a big project,” Oreinsaid, who also founded the company with his brother Michael, said.
The project will have a tremendous impact on health care, Orenststein said.
“If we can understand the whole process from the beginning, we can build a better system.”
“It can have a huge impact on the health care system,” he added.SIPRI uses a number of different techniques to analyse health information, from the collection of genetic information, to the analysis of social network information.
“Data analysis is an important part of our job, and this is our biggest data experiment to date,” Orexin said, “and we are working with the data team in the NIH, and in the CDC to help make it a reality.”
“This is a tremendous feat, and I’m excited to see it grow,” he said.
