Vice President, SAP Health Innovation Hub
In recent years, digitalization has progressed in many different areas. Healthcare is one domain where the expectations for improvements driven by large-scale data analysis are especially high. But so far, the benefits brought to patients by big data technology and artificial intelligence have been very limited, with healthcare costs rising constantly and treatment success being unsatisfying in major disease areas. In this talk, we will discuss why the breakthrough of data-driven precision medicine is not happening yet and why sharing healthcare data among different participants in a health system will play a key role in improving healthcare in the future.
