I believe one more technology that can be useful for medicine is Artificial Intelligence (https://qubit-labs.com/artificial-intelligence-future-happening-now/). While big data is used to store information about patients and their health issues, AI is able to analyze tons of data accroding to a set algorythm and provide humans with accurate results. It would have taken human months to read such piles of documents. Moreover, if you set AI right it can aslo suggest diagnosis to doctors taking into account symptoms of a patient. This technique was already tested in 2014 https://www.wired.com/2014/06/ai-healthcare/.

@vincentemcgrath, you are correct. Artificial intelligence can help us in so many ways. Here’s what our CIO had to say about it recently: http://medcitynews.com/2017/02/mayo-clinic-cio-ai-stuff-really-real/ And a story that tells you about one of our efforts in developing ‘sniffers’ – complex algorithms (aka artificial intelligence) that can aggregate multiple data sources/points and ‘sniff’ out health issues before a health care provider might be able to put the pieces together. https://advancingthescience.mayo.edu/discussion/sepsis-and-shock-response-team/
