In the days before computers, doctors sometimes used trial and error to treat their patients.
Try one approach; if you don’t see improvement in a few days, try something else. Inexact, for sure, but physicians relied on their training and intuition to restore their patients’ health.
The equation changed with the advent of computers, and the sophisticated software that analyzes data. Today, data is central to treating disease, improving overall quality of life for patients and improving efficiency of the global healthcare system. Guesswork is becoming more rare.
