Health Data Science

The U.S. ranks 37th out of developed economies in life expectancy and other measures of healthcare, while by far outspending other countries on per-capita healthcare costs. We spend 18% of GDP on healthcare, while other countries on average spend on the order of 10 % of GDP.

We Spend a lot of money on treatments that don't work, because we have poor understanding at best of what will and won't work. We need a new healthcare system. We are on the verge of that new system now. We don't have it yet, but we can see it around the corner.

Patient Data Science is designing and developing tools to help physicians, patients and insurer to make cost effective decisions.
