Today, making use of big data is becoming mainstream 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.
In this white paper, Professor Sawa, of Teikyo University Medical Information ...System Research Center, explains the current state of big data utilization in the Japanese healthcare industry focusing on these three specific aspects: data, technology, and science. This paper also examines solutions provided by Microsoft and Intel that support big data's underlying technologies.
We hope this white paper will assist healthcare professionals who are considering how to leverage big data by providing guidance on gathering relevant information and evaluating the deployment of a big data system.
