Big Data and Analytics to Support Disease Prevention!!
Hello, I want to learn about big data and analytics, how they support disease prevention. It is very interesting and may prove to be potentially advantageous if it really serves the purpose as they claim. Please put your thoughts on this.
@gul The technological revolution keeps going, and the amount of healthcare data accumulated in recent years is astonishing. The massive arrays of data (anonymized) can be used for figuring out medical patterns and trends, allowing scientists to discover new correlations between demographics, ecology, economy, and many other factors on the one hand and health conditions of the population on the other. When a sufficient amount is available to scientists, data can be processed as Big Data; it can be fed into AI or machine-learning algorithms to be analyzed and interpreted and provide humanity with medical insights that have never been accessible before. Such analytics offer opportunities for chronic disease prevention and long-term treatment plans. Big data can also help in pandemic prevention, including a brilliant idea of fighting COVID-19 with the help of analytics. Of course, you don’t need to have data of millions of patients to obtain some helpful conclusions. The most widespread healthcare software allowing for data accumulation and analytics is an electronic health record (EHR) system. Such medical software solutions are available to almost any healthcare provider or organization in the USA, and one can be built with the help of TATEEDA.
