We need to know this first. If our health system sets an example to the world. This is a long term effort and the return of many efforts. When we say digital health, Turkey has set an example to the world with its excellent work, and implemented its measures. Managing any healthcare and data is the result of great efforts. Turkey has proved its success in health tourism. Its success has been supported and appreciated by the people of the world. As a very common example we can prove that there are many They come to our country from developed countries and try to get health care. Our country has achieved many benefits in the field of health, but these benefits have not been achieved. It is still effective. “

“Personalization of information is also important for improving the quality of healthcare. Creating a field where genetic information and digitization come together requires group intelligence, not individual intelligence. Team intelligence comes with team leadership and management. Those who fail to become a team fall behind in this race. “It’s very important. Being a team also ensures efficient use of resources. The use of resources is important for health as it is in all cases. It is a separate science to be able to grow resources properly.
We have launched a scientific research project on artificial intelligence. We presented this project, called Computational Psychiatry, to more than 10,000 members worldwide at the Congress of the American Psychiatric Association last year. When we enter the digital world, it used to be said that data is everything. Data is not everything, in fact everything is data. Even pen hold information. We are in a digital-based universe. The philosophy of the material universe has changed. The interpretation of material philosophy is not satisfied. There was talk of an energy-based universe, and now there is talk of a digital-based universe. Digital resources are very important. He who can manage digital resources also rules the world.

The Ministry of Health is an example to the world,” Tarhan said. Succeeded. Covid-19 was a serious crisis, but initially digitized. We were able to manage it.
