Clover Health: Transforming and Analyzing Healthcare Data with Python

To Be Announced


This workshop will give you an introduction to how we use python for testing, analysis, and processing at Clover. This includes a walkthrough of our tech stack along with a dive into two use cases. The first use case is from a Data Science perspective which will go over how we test SQL queries in our data pipeline. This will get into an example of statistical modeling in a particular insurance operations context. The second use case is from a Engineering perspective which will show how we transform nested JSON structures into consumable flat table structures. This will also touch on techniques for processing large amounts of data. Clover uses lots of python tools and libraries which we're happy to discuss. We rely heavily on Postgres as our primary database solution. However, this talk will highlight SQLAlchemy, Jupyter Notebook, pytest, generators, partial functions, and LRU caching. ## Outline/Agenda 1. Speaker Bios 2. Description of Clover as a company 3.
