Healthcare service industry generates data in abundance in the form of physician notes, pathology reports, and so on, but the correct interpretation of this data is critical for providing actionable insights that will lead to better care.Big Data refers to a large amount of data that is being generated around the world at an unprecedented rate. The data set in question is huge in size and complexity, rendering traditional data management techniques inefficient for processing.

The use of predictive analytics can provide healthcare organizations with valuable insights to improve their existing business models and increase their profitability.

Evidence-based medicine is acting as one of the major catalysts for this transformation. Big Data analytics provides a comprehensive view of a patient's health condition and is offering ways to organize future vision, thereby enhancing outcomes. In the coming years, not only will patients, hospitals, and insurance companies benefit from this innovation, but the healthcare field will undergo a vast improvement. The core for this transformation is healthcare analytics, which will leave a vast impact on the healthcare sector by providing solutions that are automated, cost-effective, and highly efficient.
