At Dana–Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, one of the best cancer treatment and research centers in the world, for example, over 90% of the patients come from the Boston region. But 90% of cancer patients are diagnosed and treated in a hospital that is not a cancer center. So, one question that concerns the CEO of Dana–Farber is: how can we use technology to make sure that everything they know at Dana–Farber can be made available in community hospitals around the world? “It’s about capturing the knowledge using AI and sharing it around the world, wherever it may be needed. We are in a fantastic time and place to do great things.”
