There are few places where information is more crucial than in the healthcare industry, where data, and misuse of it, can literally mean the difference between life and death.

As a matter of fact, healthcare data is flowing from everywhere: social media/web data, machine2machine data, transactional data, biometric data, genomic data, human-generated data… Just imagine what you would be possible if you could set up interoperability between data flows to deliver a unique, collaborative flow enabling live analytic learning in various areas.

Here are great areas where data tech can rock healthcare:

Care coordination would be made possible with tools allowing to clean, aggregate, and transform data from numerous health IT systems.

– In a healthcare market where Value-Based Care is the dominant paradigm, service value will be maximized by building highly specific services that transform raw data into solutions for fraud detection, staffing optimization, physician profiling, customer and employee churn reduction, predictive maintenance, no-show forecasting, and much more.

– Data use will also optimize clinical care, improve patient safety, and expand the potential for precision medicine, health care providers are sure to deliver better care.

– Finally, a great data platform can help any healthcare player to develop health knowledge and awareness, in strengthening consumer engagement, developing advanced population health strategies, and favoring open transparency.
