SAS Global Forum 2016 just ended, but we are already looking ahead to 2017. We are in the planning stages for papers and presentations and would like your input. What topics would you like to see covered next year? Please be as specific as possible. This conference is for YOU, so we want to ensure the presentations hit the mark.

Hi!  I'd be really interested in data mining health care datasets - specifically, looking at questions like patient having multiple surgeries for the same condition, materials costing analysis for surgical procedures (for example, when Suture A is used with Dressing A, patient goes home 4 hours sooner).  Our hospital is small(ish) so we don't have a huge amount of data, but they are spread over multiple databases / platforms (about 12 different databases).  Please let me know if you would like any further information 🙂
