Healthcare Big Data in the Cloud
We are living in the information age. There are large and complex data sets generated daily. Data is generated by social media, emails, as well as numerous data sensors. As we become a more digitized society the large data sets present both opportunities and challenges. In the area of healthcare, big data sharing and analysis can aid in the identification and treatment of diseases as well as predicting epidemics. Additionally, big data analytics can aid in predicting healthcare requirements for specific populations with modeling and management of healthcare patterns for predictive analysis. The goal is to collect and analyze as much data about a patient as possible. Data can come from patient records as well as from patient wearable devices. Collection and analysis of data can aid in identifying warning signs of serious illness at an early stage allowing for better treatment options. The challenges with big data are storage capacity, privacy & security, and collaboration.
