Why Facebook and Google Missed the Boat on Healthcare: Lessons Learned from Silicon Valley

The frenzy in healthcare as in every other industry is around the power of Big Data. Yet in healthcare most if not all of the data we have been trying to dissect has been tethered to the healthcare delivery system. As the race ensues to create the truly engaged consumer, the solution ultimately lies in the ability to understand trends, preferences, profiles of people in their daily lives and the lifestyle they lead around health. Google , Facebook, Apple have defined the dictionaries of our interests, likes and dislikes but why not health? Have they missed the opportunity?

In this webcast talk Dr. Sreedhar Potarazu (Dr P), Fox News Contributor, Acclaimed Author and Nationally Recognized Expert on Big Data and Healthcare, tells the story never told on the next "Big THING" in healthcare and the lessons learned from Silicon Valley and why it has not conquered healthcare. Don’t miss this informative presentation.
