Healthcare in the world’s most developed country US, someone asked me is it cost-effective? You know the answer, no, it’s one of the most expensive commodity in the US. US ranks 1st when it comes to per patient spending, yet the World Health Report 2000, Health Systems: Improving Performance, ranked US health care system 37th in the world when gauged on the parameter of patient outcomes.

Health Data Analytics and clinical terminology systems like SNOMED CT by Prof. Supten Sarbadhikari, @supten

Healthcare, with its inherent complexity, deals with large volumes of data coming in. Well designed and used EMRs (Electronic Medical Records) can collect huge amounts of data.

How Healthcare is becoming B2C with the help of Interoperability by Ritika Jain @ritikajain192 and Vakku Chethalan
