Today, making use of big data has become a norm in various industries and business sectors. The healthcare industry is no exception. In particular, medical facilities, which generate and process huge volumes of medical information and medical device data, have been accelerating big data utilization.
As technology evolves and electronic data becomes more complex, digital medical record management and analysis becomes a challenge. In order to discover patterns and make relevant predictions based on large data sets, researchers and medical professionals must find new methods to analyze and extract relevant health information.With the effective use of big data, healthcare organizations ranging from single-physician offices and multi-provider groups to large hospital networks and accountable care organizations stand to realize significant benefits. Potential benefits include detecting diseases at earlier stages when they can be treated more easily and effectively; managing specific individual and population health and detecting health care fraud more quickly and efficiently.
