Hadoop, HBase, and Healthcare

A session at Strata New York 2012

Wednesday 24th October, 2012

4:10pm to 4:50pm (EST)

A person’s health records are often fragmented across many institutions, making it difficult or impossible to assemble a complete picture to support the best possible care. With one third of acute care in the United States supported by Cerner systems, we are leveraging technologies such as Hadoop, HBase, Storm, and SOLR to assemble and analyze medical records with unprecedented breadth.

This talk will cover the following areas:

  • A technique for a continuously rolling, realtime Map/Reduce using HBase and Storm, which includes handling data that is incomplete and arriving in an unexpected order
  • Leveraging that system to pre-compute views into health records, index it in SOLR, and detect and alert clinicians of medical issues in near real time.
  • Using Map/Reduce to create new knowledge from this broad set of health data
