This week: The Woolcock Institute of Medical Research probes billions of data points to understand why we can’t sleep. Naveego offers data cleansing to help hospitals keep medical records accurate and complete during a pandemic (and at other times too). Plus, a COVID-19 vaccine trial seeks volunteers.
“With Oracle, we don’t have to focus so much on the technical part. We can focus on what’s needed to sleep.”
