Many industries use big data to learn about their customers and tailor their products or services accordingly. In health care, big data sources include patient medical records, hospital records, medical exam results and information collected by healthcare testing machines. Health IT Analytics brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “How to Create a Healthcare Data Culture.”
With a strong integration of biomedical and healthcare data, modern healthcare organizations can possibly revolutionize medical therapies and personalized medicine.
Data analytics are necessary for this to happen, but transitioning from paper to digital for data collection and sharing is only part of the equation. It requires a culture shift in the organization as well.
During the pandemic, this information became all the more valuable. Real-world data helped inform leaders about anything from high-risk patient populations to the impact of measures like social distancing.
Making data accessible is the first step. Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
