Overview

How big will the data get? This year we may collect more data about the human body than in all the history of medicine so far. But it often seems that this coursing circulatory system of medical data is clogged and clotted. Is all this information serving patients and helping doctors, or leaving the healthcare system drowning and confused?

Help is on the way. At the 2014 Healthcare Summit, the world’s most influential healthcare event featuring the top leaders in the industry, we will showcase several examples of how the production and analysis of new kinds of data are changing patient care, leading to new treatments, and saving money. Join us on December 3 and 4 to get smart about the big and little data that will shape the future of medicine. Our goal: to get from data to wisdom in a day.
