IS 590PD Practical Health Data Analytics

This course provides hands-on experience with practical data analysis. Datasets will be drawn from the health sector and will include structured, unstructured, social media, and geospatial data. Students will work in teams to refine the project question, identify the appropriate analytical methods, obtain any necessary supplemental data from online sources, perform the analysis, visualize the results, and present the project to stakeholders. Teams will be assigned based on analytical skill-level from basic statistics to advanced machine learning. Students should have taken an introduction to statistics class, but no prior experience in the health domain is required.
