Express Scripts Chief Medical Officer, Steve Miller, MD, joined Stanford Professor Russ Altman and Microsoft Research Scientist Eric Horvitz at “The Atlantic Meets the Pacific” conference for a discussion about how using big data can improve the healthcare system.

Dr. Miller highlighted how the Express Scripts predictive models can identify the likelihood of prescription drug abuse and who is most likely to stop taking their medications.

When big data becomes actionable at the point a health decision is made, we can improve health and financial outcomes for patients and clients.
