Bringing Big Data to Population Health
Dr. Harlan Krumholz joined a group of panelists discussing the impact of big data on the future of medicine during the QCOR 2018 session.
People and Their Data
Efforts to generate knowledge are failing to keep pace with the information needs of health care professionals, policy-makers, administrators and, most importantly, patients. The expense, delay, and gaps inherent in our pursuit of knowledge leave us with far too much ignorance about the trade-offs of risk, benefit and cost for individuals and society. We need new approaches for generation of rich, detailed, longitudinal data that describes people’s journeys through health and disease. One such path involves digital health, in which people are provided access to their digital health data and given opportunities to leverage it in ways that may help them and advance society. In this talk, Dr. Krumholz provided a roadmap describing how such a future may be achieved – and why it may be right around the corner.
