We are seeing more and more discussions about ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS and the possibilities of more efficient, more cost effective, and more accurate medicine / health care delivery; we are seeing statements like the one in a recent "Information Week" blog:
"As electronic medical records become the norm, researchers across many areas of medical research are hoping that the availability of vast data sets and the use of big data techniques like machine learning will unlock new discoveries that might lead to cures."

What do you think?
