Harnessing big data for health equity through a comprehensive public database and data collection framework.
Cameron Sabet et al. NPJ Digit Med 2023 5 (1) 91

We examine the reasons behind the delayed adoption of big data for healthcare equity, recent efforts embracing big data tools, and methods to maximize potential without overburdening physicians. We additionally propose a public database for anonymized patient data, introducing diverse metrics and equitable data collection strategies, providing valuable insights for policymakers and health systems to better serve communities.

Medicine and health of 21st Century: Not just a high biotech-driven solution.
Assidi Mourad et al. NPJ genomic medicine 2022 11 (1) 67

Although the potential of biotechnology is motivating, we should not lose sight of approaches that may not seem as glamorous but can have large impacts on the healthcare of many and across disparate population groups. A balanced approach of “omics and big data” solution in contemporary health systems along with a large scale, simpler, and suitable strategies should be defined with expectations properly managed.

Integrating Internet multisource big data to predict the occurrence and development of COVID-19 cryptic transmission.
Gao Chengcheng et al. NPJ digital medicine 2022 10 (1) 161

With the recent prevalence of COVID-19, cryptic transmission is worthy of attention and research. Early perception of the occurrence and development risk of cryptic transmission is an important part of controlling the spread of COVID-19. Previous relevant studies have limited data sources, and no effective analysis has been carried out on the occurrence and development of cryptic transmission. Hence, we collect Internet multisource big data (including retrieval, migration, and media data) and propose comprehensive and relative application strategies to eliminate the impact of national and media data.

Big data and AI in pandemic preparedness
The Lancet Summit: October 27-28, 2022

Managing COVID-19 and infectious disease is a global priority over the next few decades. Clinical and research communities are committed to reviewing the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a key part has been the unprecedented use and rapid scale of technology. This conference will allow diverse stakeholders to discuss opportunities for new pandemic warning systems based on modelling approaches using AI; advances in real-world surveillance and tracking of disease spread; AI for drug screening and rapid diagnostics; and advances in remote treatment and telehealth.
