Advanced Practices and Innovative Tools:
Using Big Data to Improve Outcomes for Patients, Families and Providers

Recent years have seen significant growth in the amount of health-related data we generate and collect, as well as our ability to use technology to analyze and understand information. The intersection of these trends, Big Data, is helping behavioral healthcare professionals to not only improve treatment for patients and families, but also foster meaningful collaboration with peers in the field.

Across two days in Denver, Colorado, the 8th Annual Eating Recovery Center Foundation Conference will explore practical applications of Big Data to advance prevention, detection, treatment and patient outcomes for eating and related disorders. Esteemed experts and emerging thought leaders in behavioral healthcare, as well as pioneers of Big Data-informed treatment, will discuss ideas worth spreading and future directions in eating disorder treatment across several formats, including general sessions, panel sessions and small-group breakout sessions.

Overarching topics of discussion include:
  • Emerging technologies in treatment, including apps, mobile devices, wearable technology and social media
  • Real-world case studies underscoring the role of data in demonstrating treatment efficacy 
  • Meta-analysis of significant research studies to distill practical applications for professionals
  • Candid conversations with pioneers of Big Data-informed treatment
