After a successful presentation on “Constancy and Change in the Diabetes Therapeutic Area: Modeling Patient Outcomes Through Cloud-Based Analytics” at The PBIRG 2017 Annual General Meeting “Gaining The Edge,” Phoenix will present a poster of the material at “X Marks The Spot: The Tip of the Iceberg” October 2-4, 2017.
“Our presentation advocates for a cloud-based approach to analytics and insights computing– it can be described as “data democratization”. In our case this entails staging large datasets on the cloud and then using R to access and reshape the data. R can also be used to perform all the analytics, visualize the uncovered relationships and even dashboard the critical indicator variables. We provide a detailed discussion of staging, cleaning and reshaping the Optum data using the R dplyr libraries. ”
