Interesting article with 2 recommendations for Healthcare Providers & Payers in leveraging big data technologies:
1. Manage patient data holistically, and in new, innovative ways.
This is exactly what Informatics Corporation of America is doing through their industry leading Health Information Exchange. By powering this exchange with MarkLogic's enterprise-hardened NoSQL database technology, ICA is able to provide a holistic view of the patient across all delivery networks.
2. Combine data into huge analytical data sets that exist on cloud computing providers, providing universal open access.
This continues the discussion of the available technologies which can now combine ALL data: diagnostic, treatment, and outcome data into a single, searchable repository (i.e. MarkLogic 6). Analysts can combine this data, better understand factors of quality of care, and keep healthcare costs low. Low healthcare costs = healthy Americans; this inverse relationship should be the most obvious and striking point to motivate both providers and payers to adopt a big data strategy that focuses on lowering costs. Whereas lower costs leads to healthier citizens, it also leads to higher margins.
The next generation of technologies is here: technologies that can manage vast amounts of unstructured, strucutred, and poly-structured data, all from the same platform; technologies that can maintain performance, speed, and scale under constant ingest and high frequency queries; technologies that work better, enable innovation, and do so for much, much cheaper.
