Businesses are more and more reliant on finding value in their data, while the public and legislators are increasing their scrutiny of the use of consumers’ data. Regulators expect companies to provide timely, complete, and accurate responses to information requests, while retaining and disposing of information in compliance with legal, regulatory, and business requirements. To manage these growing and competing dynamics, no business can these days disregard “Information Governance.” MC Bernstein Data provides Information Governance consulting and management services, focusing on key IG risk and business objectives, including data privacy, defensible disposal, and information security.  Read our interview with the founders here.  To contact Club member, Anna Pappageorge, CBS '99:  anna@bernsteindata.com

Elucid Bioimaging is cost-effectively improving the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease with machine intelligence. Elucid's software, vascuCAP, analyzes CT scans to calculate both a patient’s risk of heart attack (or stroke) & the potential limitation of oxygen delivery to the heart (FFR). vascuCAP’s output allows patients to avoid the millions of unnecessary invasive coronary angiograms over 83% of the time, reduces the overall cost of care by more than 26% over one year ($4000+), predicts risk of infarction over 30% more accurately than the standard of care, and is reimbursed over $950 per use. This unique approach enables us to determine the optimal medical therapy for each patient individually by truly understanding the underlying cause of the disease – atherosclerosis.
