The healthcare industry is currently attempting to restructure itself. The guiding principle of this restructuring: the acquisition and employment of what is known as "Big Data." Big Data consists of the enormous datasets that flow daily from manufacturers, healthcare providers, regulatory bodies, scientists and others. It is a broad term for any collection of information so vast and complex that it can't be handled with traditional data-processing tools.
There is considerable discussion of Big Data in many industries. The healthcare industry is one of the industries in which applications of the concept are arising. Big Data in Healthcare examines selected current and future applications of Big Data within the healthcare ecosystem.
In the healthcare field, multiple sources of data may be available, including:
Big Data in Healthcare looks at contributions and applications in the following healthcare segments:
Information Technology (IT) companies participating in in vitro diagnostics (IVD) are diverse and show great ingenuity. In IVD, there has been a proliferation of software options to capture and analyze data from multiplexed, signature panel, mass spectroscopy, arrays and biochip platform molecular acid tests, among others. IVD companies are moving from a device-driven approach to a total systems suite of services approach with a data management focus, illustrated via partnerships with Google, Apple, IBM Watson and other IT companies. Selected applications of Big Data discussed within the report fall into the subsegments of molecular diagnostics, microbiology and virology, histology and cytology, digital imaging, mass spectrometry, and clinical chemistry.
Precision or personalized medicine applications of Big Data are discussed within the report. Big Data will be essential to unlocking precision medicine. By combining tissue data, genomics, and clinical outcomes, doctors will be able to better match therapies with patients.
Big Data in Healthcare also presents information on the following Big Data developments:
Company profiles within the report look at Big Data players. Big Data players, defined broadly for the purposes of the report, are companies or organizations involved with healthcare analytics processes in some form, whether gathering healthcare data, either in an unstructured or a structured (as in an EHR platform) way; structuring healthcare data; or applying healthcare data, as is most often the case in precision medicine applications. The companies profiled include:
The information presented in this report is the result of data gathered from government reports, company product literature and other corporate brochures and documents, as well as information found in the scientific and trade press.
