There are few (if any) industries that can be transformed by artificial intelligence to the degree that healthcare can.

Data in existence is not standardized, highly fragmented and is stored in incompatible legacy platforms. The technology exists, so why is healthcare so far behind other sectors in utilizing existing technology and what needs to be done to catch up?
