Collaboration Session 1: Modernization of Enterprise Data Governance

Governance is a vital component of any data strategy. Data policies, role definitions, and compliance provide a framework upon which successful data strategies are built. As Big Data, Cloud technologies, and Artificial Intelligence rise to prominence, Enterprise Data Governance must evolve to match. Discuss the changes you anticipate in Data Governance best practices as these technologies rise to the fore, and reflect on the changes that have already occurred.

Collaboration Session 2: Maximizing Data Access

Making data available to the right people, when it’s needed, in the format it’s needed in is one of the most important outcomes of a successful data enterprise. Discuss how data practitioners can best leverage new technologies to maximize non-sensitive data sharing with the public, and increase access to sensitive data while maintaining privacy, security, confidentiality, and respecting the interests of data providers and other stakeholders.

Collaboration Session 3: Shaping Data Strategies to Better Support Decision Making and Accountability

Timely, high quality information is necessary to enable evidence-based decision making, research for improving future policy-making, and providing accountability and transparency. Data strategies provide the policies and standards for using data effectively, making them a critical enabler for these subject areas. Discuss the ways in which data can support these tasks, and how these considerations shape the development of a data strategy.

  • A recap of what was discussed during the Dec 5th 2017 summit and developments post summit
    • Establishment of the ATARC Data Analytics Working Group
    • Project Authorization Request (PAR) acceptance for IEEE regarding shared analytics
  • Discussion on shared data analytics appliques including
    • Introduction to sharing analytics and what the approach entails, why it is needed
    • Potential standards for sharing analytics and portable data models
    • Use cases for facilitation of sharing analytics
    • Potential clinical workflows using shared analytics
    • Potential obstacles to implementation of analytic sharing in clinical ecosystems
