Are you available on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at noon (PDT)? If so, book your calendar to attend the upcoming event, “Improving Health in the Era of Ubiquitous Information: The Role of Health Policy.”
The digital era has made information about health universally available. At the same time, a major shift in computing has enabled deep measurement and analysis across the spectrum of human biology and clinical information.
The new frontier, however, is the ability to characterize people and their interactions in the “real world.” The multidimensional integration of this information promises to unleash powerful approaches to risk assessment and intervention, particularly for common, chronic diseases in which everyday life choices have major impact. The limiting factors in using ubiquitous information for health benefit are no longer technological, but cultural and social.
