Ian is the VP of Advanced Analytics at Highmark Health, where his group form a center of expertise for all things data science and sophisticated analytical techniques. That includes our MLOps framework (including ethical AI), developing new capabilities for novel use cases, building predictive analytics and machine learning models, next best action selection, behavioral engineering, evaluation of interventions, analytics enablement, natural language processing, coordinating our analytic product portfolio, and transition of our analytics to the cloud. As an integrated financing and delivery system, we have the privilege of working on uses cases for both the payor and provider-side and combining the two in a way we call “blended health”.
