Live from FEI 2013: Big Sexy data & the Transformation of American Healthcare

Kevin Fickenscher, AMIA, spoke today at FEI Wellness on the forces that are precipitating change in healthcare.

"Vision is the art of seeing invisible." - Jonathan Swift

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." - Marcel Proust

Data will be the driver for large scale change.

"Change is the price of survival" - Sir Winston Churchill

Areas to Watch:
Knowledge creation
Diagnostic Diffusion

Embrace the future and huddle.
