BIG DATA & HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS: A HIMSS EVENT
BOSTON, Oct. 22-23, 2018
If ever a technology was the opposite of plug-and-play, artificial intelligence is it. Beyond the obvious table stakes – having sound information and a smart data strategy – getting AI right requires a broad array of closely interrelated technologies to work well together. And it demands that each organization be able to tailor its deployments to their own particular needs.
The data literacy part of the equation is hard enough to get right, for instance.
"Very few health systems that I have seen and talked to have figured out their data strategies," said Nevenka Dimitrova, chief technology officer for oncology informatics and genomics at Philips Healthcare, speaking at the HIMSS Precision Medicine Summit this spring.
