    The protected health information of deidentified individuals may not be private after researchers used machine-learning techniques to reidentify the health data of some children and adults. The findings could signal a need for legislation that protects and ensures the privacy of people’s health data.

    “The findings of this study suggests that current practices for deidentifying physical activity data are insufficient for privacy and that deidentification should aggregate the physical activity data of many people to ensure individuals’ privacy,” a study published in JAMA said. The study was authored by Liangyuan Na, a graduate student researcher for the Operations Research Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, et al.

    for Healthcare Professionals

    health data viz

    Kathy Rowell and her team put on some great events at the Consortium! 

    Here's one you should not miss, at her own office at HealthDataViz. 

    This is a full-day workshop ... see below for details.

    As you can see from the photos above, we put the fun back in 

    FUNdamentals of Data Analysis and Statistics!

    And why shouldn't this one-day workshop be fun? It's for healthcare 

    professionals, not healthcare statisticians!

    Most of all, it's about learning how to use the kind of fundamental 

    statistics encountered by health and healthcare professionals 

    every day (sometimes twice a day).

    And it even includes a special segment with Claire Kelley, 

    a guest lecturer from American Institutes for Research

    who will be discussing Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.

    September 19, 2018 | Wellesley, MA. Featuring a special segment with Claire Kelley, 

    guest lecturer from American Institutes for Researchwho will be discussing 

    Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, this effective one-day workshop will 

    cover exploratory, confirmatory, and qualitative data analysis, and their use with 

    the fundamental statistics healthcare professionals encounter every day. 

    The workshop will enable you to understand about how your data was developed; 

    confer both the ability and the confidence to challenge it when necessary; 

    and give you the skills to interpret it correctly and present it in a 

    clear and compelling way.
