Dr. David Samadi discusses how electronic medical records (EMR) are improving the healthcare process, and the role that computers, such as IBM's "Watson", will one day play in helping in diagnosis and treatment.

Watson, developed by IBM and made famous for its role as a contestant on Jeopardy!, is a super-computer that is designed to process large amounts of data and generate answers to questions when provided information in standard human language. It's believed that one day computational and reasoning abilities like Watson's will be able to assist in the diagnosis of medical conditions and provide treatment options for patients.
