Big medical data poses great challenges to life scientists, clinicians, computer scientists, and engineers. In this paper, a group of life scientists, clinicians, computer scientists and engineers sit together to discuss several fundamental issues. First, what are the unique characteristics of big medical data different from those of the other domains? Second, what are the prioritized tasks in clinician research and practices utilizing big medical data? And do we have enough publicly available

Fourth, are there any benchmarks for measuring algorithms and systems for big medical data? Fifth, what are the performance gaps of state-of-the-practice and state-of-the-art systems handling big medical data currently or in future? Finally but not least, are we, life scientists, clinicians, computer scientists and engineers, ready for working together? We believe answering the above issues will help define and shape the landscape of big medical data.
