Topic:Data and its use in health care
Health care data is traditionally used for billing and science purposes. Data is often collected specifically to be used in academic science. Data that is generated by electronic medical records can be used also as big data for population health. The more structured data one has, the more it can be used as a tool for enterprise resource planning. Automatic segmenting of patient groups to different care paths, automated reminders and automated rule engine generated steering of patients in the paths will increase in near future. This steering will take place by communication using apps or even simple sms-messages and that will result to better efficiency, but also better customer (patient) experience.

Syringomyelia is characterised by fluid filled cavities forming in the spinal cord. Untreated, syrinxes can cause progressive neurological deterioration and deformity. Theories abound regarding the pathophysiology, but none fully explain this enigmatic condition. Treatment of the syrinx should be directed at the cause, which can sometimes be challenging to identify. There are many controversies in this area, but a logical approach to the assessment and management of these patients is possible.
