The future of medicine relies on massive collection of real-life data

Health care costs rise as doctors try batches of treatments that don’t work in search of one that does. Meanwhile, drug companies spend billions on developing each drug and increasingly end up with nothing to show for their pains. This is the alarming state of medical science today. Shahid Shah, device developer and system integrator, sees a different paradigm emerging. In this interview at the Open Source convention, Shah talks about how technologies and new ways of working can open up medical research.

Shah will be speaking at Strata Rx in October.
