Leverage Healthcare Big Data for a Better Care Environment
The Changing Data Landscape
The increasing digitization of healthcare information is opening new possibilities for providers and payers to enhance the quality of care, improve healthcare outcomes, and reduce costs. Technology advances, regulatory mandates, and government incentives have accelerated the move from paper to digital health records. With information in digital form, healthcare organizations can use available tools and technologies to analyze that information and generate valuable insights.
Bringing together disparate data silos from within an organization can help increase the value of those analyses. The integration of electronic health records (EHRs), medical claims, videos, medical images, scanned documents, and physicians’ notes enables organizations to create a rich, 360-degree view of each patient. Incorporating external sources of data is also key. Integrating social, demographic, environmental, and behavioral information relating to patients allows organizations to discover new correlations that might otherwise have remained hidden.
