Report of the 12th New Frontiers symposium Big data, better healthcare? - 1 November 20187 November 2018
Examples from the application of deep learning to image reading in pathology and radiology and the application of network medicine to monitor infectious disease outbreaks or collective mood states using twitter data showed the huge potential of big data approaches for building better healthcare.
Report of the 12th New Frontiers symposium Better care, network care? - 2 November 20187 November 2018
No easy answers at this symposium last Friday, only challenges that can be overcome if we succeed in 5 things. First and most radically, put patients in the center of healthcare. Second, start with assessing what the local population needs and not what local professionals have to offer.
