Abstract Monitoring and modeling biomedical, health care and wellness data from individuals and converging data on a population scale have tremendous potential to improve understanding of the transition to the healthy state of human physiology to disease setting. Wellness monitoring devices and companion software applications capable of generating alerts and sharing data with health care providers or social networks are now available. The accessibility and clinical utility of such data for…

Linking Longitudinal Variability in Physiological and Behavioral Data to Disease Processes: Opportunities and Challenges
The opportunities they envision are advances in real-time biomedical and healthcare analytics in the clinical setting that will be driven by technologies that monitor, store, remotely transmit, analyze, and display everyday physiological and behavioral data in both healthy and disease states.
The State of Data in Healthcare: Path Towards Standardization
This work represents an effort at developing a patient-centric framework deemed the Healthcare Data Spectrum (HDS), consisting of six layers that begins with the innermost micro-level omics and macro-level demographic data that directly characterize a patient, and extends at its outermost to aggregate population-level data derived from attributes of care for each individual patient.
Using Electronic Health Records To Generate Phenotypes For Research
Common and emerging electronic phenotyping approaches applied to electronic health records are described, as well as current limitations of both the approaches and the biases associated with these clinically collected data that impact their use in research.
Deep learning for healthcare: review, opportunities and challenges
It is suggested that deep learning approaches could be the vehicle for translating big biomedical data into improved human health and develop holistic and meaningful interpretable architectures to bridge deep learning models and human interpretability.
