How Health IT Big Data Will Improve Patient Outcomes

Big data in healthcare is gaining a lot of attention as the drive to personalized medicine shifts into high gear. Recently, the Bipartisan Policy Center hosted a forum that focused on improving healthcare through the use of big data. We were fortunate to catch up with several thought leaders at the event and find out where the puck is headed with using big data to improve patient care.

In the above video, Sen. Ron Wyden (Ore.), J. Leonard Lichtenfeld, M.D., Deputy Chief Medical Officer, American Cancer Society, and Nirav Shah, MD, MPH, Commissioner of Health, State of New York, share their visions of how big data will impact healthcare going forward and the steps needed to harness the power of information within big data for better patient outcomes. Take a look and let us know what you think.
