In this session we will extend the discussions that occurred during Fall 2016 CAC meeting on "Healthca re Analytics as a Service" to determining ways to stimulate cross-site interactions. Each of our facul ty investigators from the three sites has unique strengths, specialty areas, and technical perspectives. During this discussion session they will bring these together to identify synergistic research thrusts that no subset of them could do alone. Discussions will include identifying the stakeholders outside the center and brainstorm on innovative industry-research partnership opportunities that could address curr ent and developing challenges in healthcare.
