Unleash the Data show

Sep 5, 2018

According to CMS Administrator Seema Verma, "We're at the beginning of what I call the digital health revolution, where we have all of this data that's in a digital format within the doctor's office and we have the ability to take that information and unleash it." Those of us at Health Matters who work in a doctor’s office or begging Ms. Verma not to unleash it just yet. We discuss the failure of IBM’s Watson to make a measurable impact in cancer care, six predictions from 1961 regarding healthcare, and the side effects of Ambien.
