Working Group: Health Information Management
In the area of healthcare, big data sharing and analysis can aid in the identification and treatment of diseases as well as predicting epidemics. 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 use of cloud computing allows for big data analytics and collaboration, but with the use of cloud computing come the challenges associated with security and regulatory compliance. This paper will look at big data and some use cases for big data in healthcare, the impact of big data on healthcare, regulatory requirements for Protected Health Information (PHI) in the cloud, and securing PHI in the cloud.
