SDS - Surgical Data Science
A great article appeared from a group of renowned expert about a new field: Surgical Data Science. (SDS: Enabling next-generation surgery 2016)
"Future advances in surgical care increasingly require a close partnership between caregivers, patients, technology, and information systems. As part of the move towards personalized medicine, interventional care will more and more transform from an artisanal craft based on physicians’ individual experiences, preferences and traditions to a discipline that relies on objective decision-making based on large-scale data from heterogeneous sources."
SDS has the promise to solve many of our urging issues in CIS. We will keep following this thread.
