Data is the oil (or some say nuclear power) in this new industrial revolution, and analytics is the combustion engine that brings out the potential in data to deliver powerful insights.
In a seminar focused on the implications and real-life applications of leveraging data in healthcare, two hospital pharmacists will be sharing their experiences and insights on how data analytics can play a massive role in improving the health of the individual and also of the population. They will be touching on issues such as the future prospects of using data in healthcare, importance of domain knowledge and technical expertise, and how one can get started in the field of data analytics
