The Future of Healthcare Infrastructure
Every country requires a national infrastructure for health care. This infrastructure must serve many needs and many individuals. In addition to providing a backbone for medical information and demographic information across populations, the infrastructure must index the nation’s health, using twenty-first century technologies to solve twenty-first century problems. The interactions with individuals will generate measurements of populations, as the input for massive data mining on large-scale supercomputers, to discover cohort-specific maximal quality at minimal cost. These information technologies will gather the data necessary to support healthcare infrastructure for viable healthcare, health and well-being.
