The last decade has seen huge advances in the amount of data we routinely generate and collect in pretty much everything we do, as well as our ability to use technology to analyze and understand it. The intersection of these trends is what we call “Big Data” and it is helping businesses in every industry to become more efficient and productive.
Beyond improving profits and cutting down on wasted overhead, Big Data in healthcare is being used to predict epidemics, cure disease, improve quality of life and avoid preventable deaths. With the world’s population increasing and everyone living longer, models of treatment delivery are rapidly changing, and many of the decisions behind those changes are being driven by data. The drive now is to understand as much about patients as possible, as early in their life as possible. By leveraging a wide range of big data capabilities to deliver clinical and financial benefits, both healthcare providers and payers are treating data as a strategic asset and putting processes and systems in place that help healthcare professionals improve decision-making and drive actionable results.
