Data and efficiency in science and medicine

September's theme explores how professionals are using smart technology to make data-driven decisions

This month, Elsevier Connect is exploring “data and efficiency in science and medicine.” Today's science and health professionals have access to more information and data than ever before. This poses a challenge: they need to filter this information to find the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. And they need to do this quickly.

In this series, we will look into how they are using smart technology to make decisions to solve problems and ultimately advance their profession.

We open this series with a story about how petroleum engineers are using an online tool to develop safer and more environmentally friendly extraction processes.

Throughout the month, we will post more stories on this theme, updating this page with the links.
