Latest IPJ focuses on the data revolution in health
The data explosion will change the world. Around this time last year, the United Nations put together a “data revolution advisory group” to inform the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals debate. Its work culminated in a report, “A World that Counts”, which contains examples of how the data revolution is already improving general quality of life. But where does pharmacy stand? The latest International Pharmacy Journal (vol 33;2) focuses on some of data revolution concepts — crowd-sourced data, real-world and real-time data, big data and data mining — as they relate to pharmacy and pharmaceutical scientists.
