HealthTech Analytics Startup Tag.bio Launches at Health 2.0 Annual Fall Conference

Tag.bio Co-Founders Tom Covington and Jesse Paquette to demonstrate the company's ground-breaking analytics software during leading Health care Technology Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Tag.bio, a startup that enables healthtech professionals to perform do-it-yourself data science, today announced their participation in the upcoming Health 2.0 Launch Session, at the Annual Fall Conference. During Health 2.0, which showcases new and leading technologies in health care, Tag.bio will demonstrate the speed and accuracy of the company's unique technology.

"As a data scientist, I know firsthand that the process of using data scientists to answer questions for end users is slow. In the best case, it takes hours-to-days to return a result, and oftentimes it ends up taking weeks and even months in the organizations we're working with," said Jesse Paquette, co-founder and Chief Science Officer of Tag.bio. "Our software platform allows a physician or scientist to do an analysis in seconds to find data patterns, while utilizing their expertise, intelligence and curiosity to drive insightful discoveries. The statistics and descriptive language returned provides answers that are clear and actionable."

The Tag.bio software platform automates and accelerates the process of analyzing large datasets down to seconds. With the company's software, a doctor at UCSF, one of the country's top 5 hospitals, has the ability to perform a complex query on a precise patient cohort, producing immediate answers about outcomes, lengths of stay, and activity cost summaries, in the same value-improvement meeting where the question arose.

"This year the Health 2.0 Conference will showcase a wide array of health care technologies that will continue to shape the outlook for U.S. and global providers, physicians and patients," said Matthew Holt, co-founder and co-chairman of the Health 2.0 Conference. "Health 2.0 is an excellent platform for the Tag.bio team to launch the company's technology."

"Tag.bio was founded to answer the question, 'how much time would data scientists save and how much value could be unlocked if end users didn't have to wait for someone else to answer their data-related questions for them?" said Tom Covington, co-founder and CEO of Tag.bio. "The Tag.bio software platform automates what was previously a weeks-to-months' long process down to seconds, giving healthtech professionals the ability to use their own skills to find answers in large datasets. We could not be more excited to partner with the Health 2.0 team to demonstrate our platform."
