Congress All about data 2014Print this page
Info30 Jan Fonteinpatio, UMCG, Groningen
In and around the healthcare industry there has been a lot of talk about "big data" — very large sets of complex data that become difficult to process using database management tools. Big data is emerging in the industry because hospitals and health systems are collecting large amounts of data on patients every single day. The data comes for a variety of settings — clinical, billing, scheduling and so on. Unfortunately, in the past, a lot of that data was not leveraged to make patient care and hospital operations better. Recently though, there has been a shift to change that.
