Here at Neo4j, we're excited that Fred Trotter will be delivering a keynote at GraphConnect San Francisco! His talk, Hacking Healthcare with Neo4j, will cover his recent efforts with the open data set DocGraph. Here is an abstract of his talk:

Hacking Healthcare requires a really good model of the healthcare system. DocGraph is a graph of how healthcare providers collaborate in the United States, and it is probably the largest named graph available to the public. It is a nightmare to work with in SQL.  It only becomes pliable when modeled and stored as graph data.

Learn more about DocGraph by reading this article or check out their website DocGraph.org.

Earlier this summer, he wrote an awesome article titled " Moving to the Open Health-care Graph" on the need for the healthcare industry to shift towards using a network graph approach to better model the healthcare system. Click here to read that article.

Fred frequently blogs, including his recent post on " Doctors vs. Data" on O'Reilly's Strata Blog, and he regularly tweets from his account: @fredtrotter. His biography is available on his website FredTrotter.com.
