How What You Do On The Internet Will Improve Health

Dr. Elad Yom-Tov

THE BOOK

Translations to Japanese and Chinese

IN THE PRESS

It reveals both the promise and the pitfalls of [the use of “big data” culled from the Internet for medical research] and—just as notably—their potential perils

Medical research is undergoing radical transformation, but until now we've just scratched the surface of how massive online data can be harnessed to improve health care. Yom-Tov -- who has been a leader in this field -- makes a solid case for why we must and how we can achieve this important objective

Despite the constant headlines of breakthroughs in medical research, they are, in truth, few and far between. The ideas in Elad Yom-Tov's book have the potential to disrupt conventional thinking and make a huge difference to human health.
