The exponential growth of medical data in the U.S is the result, in part, of the national commitment to health IT and electronic medical records, support among doctors for evidence-based medicine and demands from consumers that their personal data help inform their care. But our ability to collect data has outpaced our ability to generate new intelligence from the data. How are companies and institutions making sense of big data to arrive at better outcomes across the health system? How is the business sector leveraging healthcare data to improve employee health and their bottom line? How do doctors and patients take advantage of the data to improve results?

The Atlantic hosted a town hall event, convening a group of entrepreneurs, doctors, researchers, business leaders and patient advocates to discuss what truly data-driven health care will look like — and how it could lead to a healthier population and economy.
