UC San Diego is at the forefront of the "learning health-care system" revolution, finding patterns in health-care and genomic data by using supercomputers and multidisciplinary teams of experts in medicine, informatics, computer science, statistics and engineering. Ohno-Machado describes recent biomedical-informatics advancements and ways in which UC San Diego will lead the path to better health.
