An overview of Big Data applications, benefits, and challenges in healthcare

Apteryx is a software tool that provides healthcare providers with a way to prepare, synthesize, and analyze patient and operation data in-house

Fremont, CA: Information that is too large and complex to be managed by traditional information storage systems is called big data. Data can be captured by medical records, hospital records, medical tests, and personal health monitoring devices like smart watches in the health field.

The use of big data analytics in healthcare allows medical professionals to make better decisions about patient care and resource allocation. Insights from big data can help doctors identify serious illnesses sooner, improving outcomes and reducing costs by providing treatment at an earlier stage.

Apteryx is a software tool that provides healthcare providers with a way to prepare, synthesize, and analyze patient and operation data in-house. It is just one example of how data analytics can improve patient experience and service delivery.

Public health administrators, hospital and clinic managers, researchers, insurance companies, individuals, and so on can use insights from Big Data. In the health field, big data is used in the following ways:

Research in Clinical Medicine

• Identification of individual and community trends in disease research and disease prediction

• Product development that is faster

• Testing and tracking of health outcomes are improved

Initiatives in public health

• A healthcare strategic plan identifies gaps and problem areas based on chronic disease, demographic and geographic data.

• Identifying public health risks earlier and more accurately than traditional methods of tracking and reporting

Services in the healthcare industry

• Automating hospital administrative processes - reducing routine workloads

• Managing staffing and operations by forecasting patient admission trends

Health records should be digitalized

• Individual health data centralization and streamlined patient data sharing

• The ability to mine digital health data from a variety of sources, including tests, scans, doctor reports, patient feedback, and wearable’s

Patient-centered care

• Detecting illnesses early

• Preventing unnecessary doctor's visits

• Experiences of personalized healthcare for patients

• Access to medical records empowers patients

• Telemedicine should be encouraged

The insurance industry

• Fraud detection

• Coverage that is customized

• An analysis of health trends based on predictive analytics

What are the challenges of using big data in healthcare?

Using big data in healthcare poses critical challenges in terms of what kind of data is being collected, how it is being compiled, and who is using it. When Covid-19 first emerged, it was hoped that big data analytics could help fight the virus. However, this did not happen. Several big technology companies provided access to their datasets to public health researchers. However, it became clear early on that the priorities of organizations such as Facebook or location app developers diverged from those of public health professionals impacting the kinds of data collected and its usefulness in tracking transmission trends.

Big data is still a relatively new concept in healthcare. The amount of data generated is enormous, and healthcare providers are still adapting and learning. There are still many healthcare organizations lacking the systems, databases, and skilled gauges to manage them.
