The Professional Computer Science (COMPUTER) and Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMB) chapters of the IEEE Panama Section, sponsored by the City of Knowledge Foundation and the University of Panama, invite you to the series of conferences "Big Data in the medical sector", which will be held on Tuesday, May 30 at the Auditorium of the School of English at the University of Panama.

Objective: Getting to know the advances in Panama in matters of Big Data and Health.

As Sarah Chan would say "data saves lives". When an administration has historical data on the public health of a country, it improves the life expectancy of the population. This implies the need to manipulate large volumes of data, which must be transformed into useful information. When working with information from patients, diseases, medical centers and others, it is necessary to use modern methods to add value to the data. This is where Big Data comes in as the state-of-the-art technology that allows it to be manipulated to produce improved medical care and intelligent decision-making in patient diagnosis and treatment.
