Data scientists in the healthcare industry face some especially tough challenges. Not only do they have to contend with complex regulatory landscapes impacting the data they can work with, but they’re also constrained by some less than modern processes.

75% of medical communication is still delivered by fax. And that’s just one example.

Derrick Higgins, Head of Enterprise Data Science & AI at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, talks to us about the processes his team has put in place to overcome these unique challenges.

In this episode, we cover:

  • The challenges of working in a highly-regulated industry
  • Implementing a continuous code review process
  • Where IT intersects with the data science life cycle
