On the first day of SXSW Interactive, former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a powerful message to a captivated crowd. He was in Austin to announce his foundation's new cancer initiative. The enthusiasm of the audience was reflective of a highly healthcare-centric SXSW. The trade show, interactive programs and keynote addresses by folds like IBM boss Ginni Rometty and Johnson and Johnson chief exec Alex Gorsky had a common message: data will transform healthcare.
Allow me to channel Biden, who declared war on cancer through his original Cancer Moonshot back in 2016: Every healthcare company, large and small, has their part to play to make incredible advances possible.
