On November 4th, 2017, EU commissioner Dr. Vitenyis Andriukatis was in Milan to attend the G7 health forum and led a discussion on the future of health, big data, articial intelligence, and potential benefits to patients.
Big data management represent one of the biggest challenges for modern medicine, in particular the volume, the variety, the velocity of access, the veridicity and the value of the data require new tools and new expertise to help doctors in the diagnosis, management and decision pathway for therapy. National health systems are diversified in Europe rending the interoperability difficult and exchange of data almost impossible. Nevertheless, the access to big data is a must and all countries are facing this issue with sometime innovative solutions.
The meeting was attended by the chair of the ERN coordinators group, Maurizio Scarpa.
