Value In Health features TRANSPERS papers and commentary on assessing the value of precision medicine and other Big Data technologies
The world has entered the "Information Age" for health care. In this world, everything is connected and the integration of "Big Data" - characterized by high velocity, volume, and variety - is increasingly important. Yet this growth in technologies must be integrated into a health care system that is undergoing fundamental change. A commentary and series of papers by TRANSPERS collaborators and other authors (organized by TRANSPERS Director Kathryn Phillips) offers insights into these trends and their implications for assessing value. The papers incorporate a wide range of perspectives - patients, providers, health care systems, society - but they all focus on the overarching issue of how to appropriately consider and assess the value of new technologies.
