How do we make care better and more effective for each individual patient?
For Joshua Denny, MD, MS, FACMI, Professor in the Departments of Biomedical Informatics and Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, the key to answering this question is in large patient populations and the data sets from them. These are pivotal in creating individualized care and finding insights that will improve care, by researching disease pattern based on phenotype data.
Why informatics? So, we can make impersonal data, personal.
