Predictive analytics refers to the use of statistics and modeling techniques to make predictions about future outcomes and performance. By looking at current and historical data patterns, the technology determines if those patterns are likely to emerge again. This can be applied to any line of business – financial, manufacturing, healthcare, etc. This interesting information came to us from CIO Insight in their article, “How is Predictive Analytics Used in Healthcare?

The expanding physical distance between the patient and their care provider has only increased the need for strong data practices in the healthcare sector in order to make smarter predictions about what care is needed and how it can proactively be provided. Predictive analytics is currently used across the healthcare industry and data analytics use cases continue to multiply in patient care.

Making data accessible is something we know a little about. Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy.
