Latest IPJ focuses on the data revolution in health

To keep up with the latest from FIP, follow us on social media!

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.
