This session will demonstrate the potential of Big Data Technologies to radically improve the quality and accessibility of the healthcare system and discuss steps that need to be taken towards this goal.
To improve the productivity of the healthcare sector, it is necessary to reduce cost while maintaining or improving the quality of care provided.
The fastest, least costly and most effective way to achieve this, is to use the knowledge that is hiding within the already existing large amounts of generated medical data.
