The Healthcare Industry, like most other industries, uses a vast amount of data that comes from multiple sources such as electronic health records, data from equipment being used etc. Data analytics in healthcare helps healthcare providers, patients, and public health authorities take data-driven decisions to achieve better patient outcomes.
Managing the humongous quantum of data, and also ensuring it adheres to Government regulations, is essential to provide value-based care to the patients. Data Analytics ensures the healthcare providers meet the unique needs of the patients by offering them tailored services based on the data. A large percentage of what affects the health outcome of patients includes factors such as health history, socio-economic conditions, habits and behaviours, lifestyle, and so on. To improve the outcome, these factors are studied and analyzed so early interventions can be arranged for providing the right healthcare.
