Can data make healthy? Of course!
Is collecting and analyzing big data a good way to support health research? Prof. Christiane Woopen, Executive Director of ceres Institute, explains why the answer is, basically, "yes."
In the health-care sector – and especially in that sector – we shouldn't be trying to slow things down; we should be doing everything possible to move them forward. In Germany, by the way, it's really high time for us to be picking up the pace.
Digitalization and health
“Digitization is going to profoundly affect and change all areas of our lives – in fact, it's already doing that. And we can't slow it or stop it – nor should we even be trying to do so, in my opinion. We should be working to guide and structure it.“
Big data for health
