THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON BIOMEDICAL DATA INTEGRATION AND DISCOVERY (BMDID 2016)
ISWC2016 Workshop
October 17-21,2016 Kobe, Japan

Introduction
Addressing healthcare needs of patients around the world requires a diverse approach and collaborative effort as awareness, costs and benefits are quite ambiguous. Driving an awareness to link what treatments drive and optimize patient health and safety is paramount and difficult - unless you are approaching it semantically. Many of the social tools used today are global such that data collection through social media is quite popular. The linking of such broad information to gather and unveil the ambiguity of costs and benefits is the first step towards awareness - the first step. The next step is the hard and costly part of the problem - the design of a medicinal treatment that will positively impact the patients and their families lives in a cost effective manner. We are fortunate to live in 2016 - where science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is advancing quite rapidly. The problems that society has tackled are impressive indeed - however the challenge of data overload is paramount.
