Help doctors save time. Take part in the analytical tournament for students


Are you interested in issues related to analytics and Big Data? Do you see your future in these promising areas? You have the opportunity to demonstrate your skills and at the same time help the National Cancer Institute to automate the entire complex process of processing medical notes.

Doctors waste time every day unnecessarily filling in data in the health information systems (HIS), and they could use it in a completely different way - by accepting more patients or extending the time of a patient's visit to the clinic.

According to experts, including doctors, the situation can be changed by using advanced analytical solutions based on fast data processing mechanisms, which are already implemented in healthcare services in the West.
