Re: Personal impact
To be honest my own healthcare experience is not much IT related yet. Here in China we still rely heavily on the old system in hospital and the penetration of IT technology, especially the hot one such as big data, is still in its infancy stage. But I do agree with the idea of healthcare IT - improve the care and minimize suffering.
