As I work on my new book, Noise!! Until the 2016 Election Results Are Known, The Health Debate Is Mostly Noise, two articles came to my attention:
Two, “Will Feeding Watson $3 Billion Worth of Healthcare Data Improve Its Decisions “? by Ross Koppel, PhD and Frank Meissner, MD in The Health Care Blog, February 24. Koppel is a senior fellow at the Leonard Davis School of Economics (Wharton) and Meissner is a cardiologist in El Paso, Texas. The two ask whether IBM’s purchase of Truven Health Analytics, and payer and patient data at the Cleveland Clinic’s “Explory’s” and Phytel, a software company, will improve health care.
