Can predictive analytics diagnose a person before they become a patient? Can you apply a mathematical formula to millions of data sets and prevent your quarterback from ever throwing out his arm?
The opportunities are limitless in applying big data analytics in the health and sports industries. Today, data science is starting to be used to not only to help patients and athletes live longer and healthier lives, it’s also enabling them to play an active role in their health plan.
On Tuesday, December 8, SAP will host its Spotlight Tour in New York City. At the event, participants can learn how the latest technological advances have transformed two of the world’s biggest industries – healthcare and sports – making them more personal, predictive and preventative.
The event promises to deliver:
Significant announcement of SAP’s commitment to personalized medicine. With 30% of the world’s data coming from the healthcare sector alone, the opportunities are endless. Thought leadership in healthcare to share how they are making a difference in individual lives: the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and Stanford University School of Medicine.
Engaging conversations with a panel of sports heavyweights, including participants from the New York Giants, Stanford Health, Under Armour and University of Notre Dame, among others, about how the Internet of Things and big data analytics are enabling athletes from high school to college to the professional level train wiser, live healthier, predict and prevent injuries, and perform at their very best.
An expert panels run from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET at Chelsea Piers, located at 23rd street and Hudson River Park. SAP will offer a networking lunch just after and showcase demos until 2:00 p.m. ET.

Dr. Stacy T. Sims, MSc, PhD, has contributed to the environmental exercise physiology and sports nutrition field for more than 15 years as both an athlete and a scientist. The chief research officer/co-founder of Osmo Hydration, Dr. Sims served an exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist in the human performance lab at Stanford University from 2007-2012 where she specialized in sex differences of environmental and nutritional considerations for recovery and performance. Her personal interest in sex differences and performance has been the precedence of her academic and consulting career, always looking at true physiology to apply innovative solutions in the sport nutrition world.
Not only an elite athlete herself, Dr. Sims has extensive experience working with athletes at all levels: from beginning recreational athletes to the Olympians and Tour de France-caliber cyclists. In 2012 she left her full time academic position at Stanford to become a mom, launch a start-up (Osmo Hydration ) and start her own consultancy practice – all to disseminate science into real world applications for athletes, coaches, educators, and colleagues.
