Yi-Ling Lin: SOA Predictive Analytics Program Prepares You for Health Care’s Future
Yi-Ling Lin, FSA, MAAA, FCA, started the SOA’s Predictive Analytics Certificate Program to keep pace with the impact big data and predictive modeling is having on the health care industry. Now a principal at Terry Group, she combines her business knowledge with her predictive analytics skills.
It’s no surprise that data plays a critical role in the health care industry. “There is a lot of data from various sources, and the skills that you learn in the predictive analytics course prepares you to handle massive amounts of data,” says Yi-Ling. “It goes from the nuts and bolts of receiving data and putting it together to the modelling and what you do with it after.” The result: She is able to detect which models and data points can solve business challenges and deliver better health services.
