The advancement of technologies such as artificial intelligence and big data promises to revolutionize the field of healthcare. From improving diagnostic accuracy to personalizing patient care, big data and analytics will transform the way healthcare is delivered around the world and will shape the future of medicine. Thus, this organization seeks to bring together students from all disciplines who have a keen interest in this incredibly innovative field. We hope to provide an environment for collaboration between students who have different backgrounds in data science, medicine, business, and other fields to explore and develop new ideas that can be applied to the world of health care. As the field of healthcare analytics and AI in medicine continues to grow immensely, our organization will serve as a platform to enable students to become the next generation of leaders in this transformative field.
