Healthcare Data Series 3/5: Palantir Foundry and Making Data-Driven Decisions Healthcare
This is the third episode in a series of discussions about healthcare data challenges and data management practices in the US. One thing is clear to everybody: regardless of the efforts, patient data is still scattered around in different organizations.

In the second episode, Phil Lindemann, VP of Business Intelligence at Epic, and Epic’s Clinical Informaticist Dave Little, MD explained a bit more about EPic Cosmos – a database built to enable easier clinical research.
