Democratizing Data with the Clover Transform Framework

Chris Hartfield | Clover Health


Clover cleans, normalizes, and aggregates data from a variety of healthcare systems, a vast domain of enormous complexity. But having engineers write all the data transforms for all this data is not sustainable.

Clover has developed the “Clover Transform Framework” to enable people throughout the organization to write data transforms with documentation, monitoring, and testing built in. In this talk we'll discuss the balance between democratizing data while ensuring data quality, lineage, and control. We'll also cover some the extensions we've made since the initial release like machine learning and clinical submissions.
