The Future of Health Data

Here is the poster that I presented at the New England Database Conference 2013, held over at MIT‘s Stata Center in Cambridge, MA. I’ve also excised the abstract for ease of reading (and so that Google will zero in on this page.)

ABSTRACT: Medicine is already becoming more dependent on the medical data contained within the medical record systems mandated by the Recovery Act. Doctors and medical practitioners have begun to shift into a data-based decision-making paradigm. The next great leap that data-driven medicine will take will involve assimilation of proteomic- and genomic-level databases into the medical record system itself. This will enable three key functions: the foundation of data mining/predictive modeling, better patient care via greater depth of knowledge, and the ability to tailor gene-based or protein-specific treatments to the patient. All of this requires massive databases and data-driven enterprises: it can be argued that medicine is becoming a true data-focused field.

    Other FSX Virtual Airlines are based on real airlines, from major carriers to small operators.

    Sub-Genre: Reality Simulation – Person-centered reality simulation games provide the user with the ability to control a
    single, or sometimes a handful, of individual characters. This
    game by Hexacto is simple, straightforward, and fun.
    Still, within each of these types of simulation games,
    certain games tend to rise to the top. If you are looking for a fun way to spend your weekends, aflight simulator games is
    one of the most fun things to have.
