Data Science, Medicine; Tactics vs. Strategy: the commencement of unclaimed domain

Gazing backward at the history

Looking in history, major innovations like dot com and Microsoft Windows were solutions intended to function as a comprehensive answer to an immediate problem for a shorter period at a much smaller order of magnitude than what we realize today. Such tactical solutions required limited ordinance and covered a smaller but precise scope of utility.

Software technology revolution and change in strategy

Parallel to the advancement of software technology, in particular, the big data at the tantrum of the fiercely competitive market, tactical solutions were step by step overturned and replaced by overemphasized business strategies exclusively focusing on the long term financial success of its organization.

Data science, business strategy and patient care asynchronous forte for conflict of interest

Medicine is a science of variance. The conditions, criteria’s and determinants of the individual’s health are invariably changing. Consequently, one can simply reckon magnitudes and nature of the influence of extracting, utilizing information and statistics to stand preordained decisions. I must utter, yes, it is happening as we speak! Indeed, pertinent to our wellness should we worry how we realize a conclusion?

Strategic shortcut to dominate Competitive market

In a highly competitive market, for those who have the upper hand, the monopoly is just a matter of convenience. After all in the corporate world money is everything, right?!

Tactic and strategy needs to be defined and balanced

Balancing strategy and tactics in healthcare and harnessing them one by one for every patient case is necessary to avoid pitfalls and takeover of unethical cookie cutter corporate medicine. Delivering personalized care requires meticulous long term and ongoing strategic planning that paves the Hippocratic trail while undergoing constant tactical update ensuring every patient receives the most up to date customized medical attention.

Avoiding the bad strategy, promoting productiveness

Decentralization of health information or in the least lawful possession of the data by any individuals is necessary to achieve and maintain sensible security. Giving back to the patients what they are lawfully entitled to will determine how their valuable information is being used and ensure its utility towards their wellbeing, instead of against them by the substance of business monopoly.
