The use of “big data” has the potential to improve both the delivery of care and the health and wellness of individuals. During this interactive policy forum, we explored the promise, challenges, and policies that are critical to encouraging innovation in improving health and health care through the use of big data. Two key policy areas were examined in detail: (1) the role of standards in aggregating and effectively using large, disparate data sets and (2) addressing concerns about privacy and security.

This policy forum is part of a broader 2013 “Innovation Economy” series of roundtable and public forums convened in parallel by the Aspen Institute and the Bipartisan Policy Center, in collaboration with Intel. Through this set of forums, we will explore the far-reaching implications of the “information revolution” (i.e. growing utility of big data), centering on the potential of this growing trend to empower individuals and transform industries across three industries: health care, energy, and homeland security. Key insights across three similar forums convened by BPC—focused on health care, energy and homeland security—will be compared and assessed in a final paper to be published by the Bipartisan Policy Center later this year.
