Giving physicians more say in how to incorporate technology into their work is good for patients, and the field.
 
Denise Silber's insight:

Article I noticed thanks to Berci. But this observation of physician potential to improve the health system through better tools they conceive is something we've been participating in at Doctors 2.0 & You. Every year, we get great physician-created tools AND also patient created tools. They are at the heart of innovation.

La problématique du big data, on le gère depuis longtemps en R&D, et même si le nombre de données à traiter devient de plus en plus important et que le besoin d'outils de traitement et de gestion des données est incontestable, mais les outils technologiques permettant de répondre à cette problématique vont-ils vraiment révolutionner et catalyser les avancées scientifiques... Rien n'est moins sûr, plus de données c'est plus de certitudes statistiques, plus de chances de comprendre les phénomènes étudiés mais c'est également plus de complexité à gérer !!!
