The pandemic has exposed many failures, cracks and weaknesses in financial, education and healthcare systems over the past year and a half. It has also opened up opportunities to use technology to fix those issues. GCN brought this interesting topic to us in their article, “How data, analytics and AI power public health.”

Big data and analytics technologies are being used in the public health sector like never before. Artificial intelligence (AI) has proven invaluable for processing the vast amounts of data collected and has powered everything from tracking the initial spread of the outbreak to helping researchers quickly analyze and interpret huge amounts of data to come up with a vaccine.

What does this mean going forward? AI and big data will certainly be vital to analyzing vaccine efficacy, identifying breakthrough case trends and more. 

However, even beyond the pandemic, emerging technologies have proven ways of sharing data to improve the efficiency of healthcare and literally save lives.

Making data accessible is something we know a little about. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
