What: This webinar will introduce big data, an umbrella term used to describe some types of real-world data. Big data can come from health care visits, including information from electronic health records and insurance claims, and it also can come from “non-traditional” sources such as social media and wearable devices. Speakers will provide an overview of big data and describe how big data is used for research.
