What if we could help democratize medicine by offering a healthcare clinic in rural Kentucky access to the same technology and information as the leading hospital in New York City? What if healthcare providers around the world could more easily collaborate, pooling their research to help find a cure for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and other rare diseases?
The OSIC Data Repository is attempting to do just that.
Technology and healthcare are becoming increasingly interconnected, with cloud adoption, data sharing and analytics poised to help reshape the future of the healthcare industry.
We recently participated in a webcast with PwC and Microsoft that uses the OSIC Data Repository as an example to discuss how digital and cloud technologies are forging a new path to manage rare diseases.
As we have often said, when you bring together great minds and good people, you create compound effects on progress. More than 122 respiratory, radiology, pulmonology, machine learning, hardware and software experts contributed their invaluable knowledge to help us create the OSIC Data Repository.
