Survive and Thrive: How Big Data Is Transforming Health Care, Part III

Type 1 diabetes management is hard work, and any misstep could spell disaster. New advances in Big Data could ease the burden.

This is a three-part comic series produced by Symbolia. Click to see part I and part II.

In previous weeks, we met Rutgers University Ph.D. student Maria Qadri and learned about her health quantification research and how diabetes affects her life. Today we dive into the evolution of Type 1 diabetes maintenance technology and its current limitations—it doesn’t operate in real-time and it’s not fully automated, but Big Data could change all of that. Qadri explains the benefits of an experimental artificial pancreas, and how health quantification can make a huge impact on the way we live.
