The 2nd Annual Big Data Health Science Case Competition (BDHSC) will be held virtually between January 29-31, 2021 before the University of South Carolina’s National Big Data Health Science Conference, scheduled for February 5-6, 2021. The BDHSC Competition is intended to provide enthusiastic teams of graduate and senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the analysis of big datasets in healthcare.
This year’s challenge will focus on solving the inappropriate use of healthcare using a data analytics approach. Each participating team will analyze the case and datasets. During this period, the teams must identify the most prominent issues and develop a strategy to address key issues to help healthcare organizations achieve their goals of reducing inappropriate care utilization. Team members will work together to present their methods, analyses, and results at the Big Data Health Science Center Case Competition, virtually. A panel of industry and academic experts will judge the presentations based on each team’s use of full analytics tools/processes, from framing the problem to data use, model building, innovation and communicating the solutions to decision-makers.
Cash prizes are: $3,000 First Prize, $2,000 Second Prize, and $1,000 Third Prize
Deadline: Team registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until January 22, 2021, or, until 30 teams have registered (the maximum number of teams they can accommodate).
