Breaking Through the Disease Barrier

Breaking Through the Disease Barrier

Our healthcare systems are broken. Doctors are capable of treating diseases but they are missing where their core focus should be: the patients as human beings. Doctor and computer engineer Nasrin Hafezparast suggests we put people first and use big data to predict a better future.

Nasrin is the Co-founder and technology lead at Outcomes Based Healthcare (OBH), a London based organization supporting health systems to deliver better outcomes for people. Nasrin has qualified in Computer Science and Medicine, both at University College London, and went on to practice medicine as a doctor in London. Working within the healthcare system, Nasrin discovered there were opportunities to improve how we care for patients. Being entrepreneurial at heart, she also started a couple of technology companies, giving rise to her passion to enable innovative technology solutions to face the challenges in healthcare. Nasrin believes in empowering people to understand their health through rapidly emerging big data and technology. Today, she is driving the strategy to support a shift towards a more personalized, data driven healthcare system.
