Data Day is an opportunity for people who need data to connect with people who have data. Last year, more than 90 people came to: hear more than 20 ignite presentations; join six “unconference” sessions; participate in the Data Dream competition; and learn about new data that lead to the launch of our Health data User Group (HUG).

This year will bring the return of IGNITE presentations and the Data Dream contest. NEW will be the addition of some skill-building workshops, posters, and a focus on finding “bright spots” in the data. A “bright spot” is more than just a positive finding. The idea of bright spots comes from an approach pioneered in international public health and is often used in quality improvement programs in health care and other areas. It’s an intentional effort to use data to identify “positive deviance” and to learn from that to replicate and spread success.

At Data Day 2018, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from:

  • Mayor Tom Barrett
