Big data has changed the way we manage, analyze, and leverage data across industries. One of the most notable areas where data analytics is making big changes is healthcare.
In fact, healthcare analytics has the potential to reduce costs of treatment, predict outbreaks of epidemics, avoid preventable diseases, and improve the quality of life in general. The average human lifespan is increasing across the world population, which poses new challenges to today’s treatment delivery methods. Health professionals, just like business entrepreneurs, are capable of collecting massive amounts of data and look for the best strategies to use these numbers.
