From Analytics to Insights: Addressing the Translation Gap


The proliferation of open-source technology, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence tools has given way to a surge in scalable "big data" solutions. However, automated analyses performed by new and seasoned data scientists often yield results without insights. This presentation reveals some of the reasons this often occurs, along with three examples of overcoming this translation gap from different industries (healthcare, financial services, and higher education).


Dr. Jackson brings 10 years of blending data science and behavioral science to solve challenging problems, primarily in healthcare and financial services. Currently, Jerrold is Director of Analytic Operations at Remedy Partners, a value-based care company in the healthcare payments space. Prior to Remedy, Dr. Jackson was Data Scientist for Aliya Financial Technologies, where he and his team built and deployed advanced analytic models to predict derogatory financial events, along with analytics to support risk management. Prior to Aliya, Jerrold was Director of Data Analytics for Emory University, working at the intersection of data and strategy and consulting to University executive leadership. Jerrold currently maintains an Adjunct Assistant Professor position at Emory University and a Faculty Affiliate role at New York University. In prior years, Dr. Jackson co-founded a health IT startup in Manhattan that uses mobile technology to target medication adherence among people with chronic asthma, and has held prior Research Scientist roles in New York City, where he also worked as a psychotherapist for 6 years. Jerrold holds a PhD from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he was a National Institutes of Health (NIH) predoctoral fellow. He also completed a NIH postdoctoral fellowship at Emory University, Masters in Social Work from Florida State University, and completed the first year of an Executive MBA at Emory’s Goizueta Business School.
