Watch Now: Big Data – Secrets to a Better Healthcare Future
Harlan Krumholz, M.D., a cardiologist, healthcare scientist and professor of medicine at Yale University, was featured at Baptist Health South Florida’s Speaker Series: Thought Leaders in Medicine. He talked about the roles data and useful information can have in revolutionizing the healthcare system. Dr. Krumholz outlined his vision of using data as an “inexhaustible source of knowledge” to fuel a healthcare system that enables informed choices and ultimately, better outcomes. He encouraged event attendees, composed largely of non-medical guests, to become “enthusiasts” for creating “alternative paths leading to the revolution of the healthcare system.”
Dr. Krumholz is a passionate advocate for transforming medicine into an information science that can provide personalized, effective and efficient care.
“Patients are experts in themselves and can sometimes more clearly see the changes medicine needs,” he said. “By bringing together information from patients’ experiences with medical tools and support, we’ll be able to create the next generation of healthcare.”
Dr. Krumholz is an internationally renowned thought leader and visionary in the science of medicine. The founder and director of the Yale-New Haven Hospital Center for Outcomes Research & Evaluation (CORE), he holds the “distinguished scientist” honor from the American Heart Association and is the author of more than 800 academic papers and two books: The Expert Guide to Beating Heart Disease: What You Absolutely Must Know, and No Ifs, Ands, or Butts: Smoker’s Guide to Quitting.
Brian E. Keeley, president and chief executive officer of Baptist Health South Florida said he hopes The Speaker Series “sparks important dialogue that we hope will help propel our industry forward and make a lasting, positive impact on the community.” The series is made possible through the generosity of Al and Janie Nahmad.
