bulk,

I suggest you read some of my posts here with my opinion of data science. It's a misnomer.

Most of the people who claim to do it would not know science if it bit them in the derriere. We have too much data and too little knowledge, so we delude ourselves that the former is a substitute for the latter. That is an illusion that reminds me of the guy who is looking for lost keys not where he lost them, but where there is light.

We would probably have a better HC system if doctors stuck to medicine.

I think that data errors are something that is going to need to be delth with, I mean we have all seen doctors handwriting. So its going to happen.

@dbdebunker, what medical doctors started to pick up some data science skills?

@Maryam, that sounds like a very interesting solution mixing big data with crowd sourcing of resources.

I hope data experts aren't treated like this. Giving someone a bunch of findings will not be guaranteed results or patterns.

Nobody using the data has a clue about its sources, inclusion or exclusion, how it was collected, what it means and how should be interpreted. That requires more and better doctors and that is precisely what we don't produce.

They do get read only access but they will also update with the visit and any medicines prescribed and whether the prescription was filled.

@Maryam that does sound handy. I guess the Walgreen's system gets read-only access to insurance information similar to Intuit's Mint and it's access to banking account information.

Tinym Walgreens has a database that can access a patient's medical records via their health plan. Thy can see their prescriptions, tests, visits etc. very much a time saver and a health protector for someone visiting the minute clinic. It can also reduce drug shopping.
