Event description

Description

Join the Institute for Informatics at Washington University in St. Louis for our second annual scientific symposium, Precision Health: Patients to Populations.

Advances in healthcare research and delivery are rapidly creating a new paradigm in which data-driven approaches will not only produce improvements in the care patients receive, but also enable the promotion of wellness beyond the hospital and clinic. Across a spectrum from artificial intelligence to genotyping to sensors and wearable technologies to electronic health record systems, we stand at critical inflection point, where data can be used not only to measure, but to intervene and improve outcomes for patients, their families, and their communities.
