Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Sharing health information such that the status quo is disrupted, and all stakeholders have access is difficult. Misaligned incentives, incompatible technology systems, and even a lack of common nomenclature makes this a huge challenge. Successful data sharing empowers researchers, data scientists, citizen scientists, patients, and clinicians. This panel explores novel ways to gather and share data for the benefit of people.
