Much Hope Placed in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence To Improve Health Care Delivery

Big Data and artificial intelligence are likely to have the greatest impacts on how health care is delivered next year, according to a Silicon Valley Bank survey of 122 founders, executives and investors in health-tech companies. Forty-six percent of respondents went with Big Data; 35% said artificial intelligence.

Piraye Yurttas Beim, is CEO at Celmatix, a fertility enhancement company. “Big data has been integral to our work at Celmatix,” Beim said. “It has empowered physicians to be able to counsel women about their chances of having a baby, based on their relevant personal metrics, and not just their age. It’s an exciting time to be in a field where the pace of innovation continues to increase as both physicians and patients realize the potential of big data and personalized medicine.”
