Session Abstract – PMWC 2018 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Traditional data silos too often slow down the scientific progress. To benefit from a data-driven healthcare approach we need to make data accessible, manageable, and interpretable. This requires data standardization and overcoming interoperability issues, a major focus of this session.
