Its an exciting time to be in healthcare and medicine – technology is bringing so much innovation and opportunity to improve the delivery, quality and reduce the cost of healthcare. Much remains to be done
At our our recent DellWorld conference we captured insights into this exciting future
As Dr. Jai Menon vice president and chief research officer for Dell Research Data said data may well be the oil of the 21st Century and in healthcare this is especially true as we see an explosion of insights and data into our health, clinical status, genome, biome and beyond
We finished sequencing the first human genome in 2003
and things have only accelerated from there with sequencing now taking less than 24 hours and costing less than $1,000
Just this one area is going to add huge amounts of data that needs to be turned into knowledge as I shared in this presentation to the Austin Healthcare Thinktank Roundtable
But even before we get to that point there are so many opportunities emerging into our daily lives to improve the service and the healthcare delivery system. Telehealth or Telemedicine is a clear winner and the regulatory and reimbursement systems seem to be catching up (details in this presentation form Connected Health).
Integrating the data and providing intelligence and insights from the mass of data that is sweeping over healthcare will be important but as we gather more our understanding improves expect this area to accelerate with deeper more meaningful insights tied closely to the ability to integrate the data from multiple (and importantly non-traditional sources).
To get a sense of the opportunities and changes coming watch the video compilation form the conference below:
Its a great time to be in healthcare as we open new doors to knowledge with the data
