Table 1: Cost, Quality & Chronic Care (Moderator: Lawrence D. Brown)

    regimen exist?

Table 2: Big Data (Moderator: Federico Lega)

  • Methods in Medicine – is it necessary to measure complexity in order to model what we see?
  • Is big data useful for all challenges we are facing? If so, how do we integrate results and navigate the jungle in research and practice?

Table 3: From Solo-Practice to Connected Enterprises – How Do We Manage?
(Moderator: Theo B.C. Poiesz)
