IBM Uses #BigData To Predict Outbreaks Of Dengue Fever And #Malaria

IBM Uses #BigData To Predict Outbreaks Of Dengue Fever And #Malaria | HEALTHCARE REVOLUTIONS eDIGEST | Scoop.it

IBM has teamed up with university researchers to use big data and analytics to predict the outbreak of deadly diseases such as Dengue fever and Malaria.

The research is aimed at understanding the spread of diseases in real-time in order to better deploy public health resources to combat the spread of infectious diseases


But rather than just predicting the spread of a disease, the researchers are applying analytics from large data sets to see how changes in rainfall, temperature, and even soil acidity can dramatically affect the populations of wild animals and insects that carry the infectious diseases. They’re also merging that information with other data, like airport and highway traffic, to further understand outbreaks.

3 UNUSED INTERACTIVE APPLICATION FOR HEALTHCARE

3 UNUSED INTERACTIVE APPLICATION FOR HEALTHCARE | HEALTHCARE REVOLUTIONS eDIGEST | Scoop.it

It’s a fairly common practice for bloggers and other media types to tell stories that reflect the BEST uses for technology in vertical applications.

 

Two areas of desperate need of innovation are higher education and healthcare. Which may be surprising, being as they are leaders in innovation output.

 

But both have failed to innovate (enough anyhow) their customer facing processes. Both have deployed various forms of digital signage and interactive solutions to facilitate satisfaction, but I’m not so sure those case studies do or should warrant much attention.

 

For storytelling context I will leverage my recent prescription filling debacle.  I was extremely frustrated and the 1980’s technology being used for this process was alarming to say the least.

 

Let’s start with simply getting my doctor to approve the prescription (which he wrote). At 4:18 PM on Tuesday I went to CVS and asked them to fill it. Because I had missed my last fill, they had to…get this…FAX a request to the doctor. I was informed to return in the morning, but I was candidly told that I may want to call the doctor myself, to “motivate him” to take action.

 

Being as I was feverishly preparing for a 3 day vacation and had a workload above my eyeballs, I failed to make that ANALOG motivational call to the doctor. When I returned to CVS that evening, they sadly reported that no action had been taken. There’s one whole day gone.

 

Now on Thursday I call the doctor’s office. I am told  - after extracting it from them – that the doctor denied my prescription because it has been more than 365 days since my last visit.

 

I don’t recall signing that agreement – especially not for a non-narcotic medication. I debated the doctor’s office, not the doctor, for nearly an hour, to no avail. It is now Thursday afternoon and I am on my way to the airport. At this point I get a call from my local CVS with “great news, your prescription has been approved!”

 

Well, too bad I am on my way to catch a flight. I ask them to transfer it to a location near the airport. But the pharma-tech wants me to tell her which CVS that is – remember I am driving and on my cell – a crime in the state of California. She is standing on her feet over a PC, AND is an employee of CVS.

 

I give her some approximate target coordinates. She tells me that there are two CVS’s on a street that is about 22 miles long and runs through about 6 cities. But she can not tell me which is nearest to the international airport I am in en route to. So I select one out of a hat and ask her to transfer. The drive from my office to the airport is nearly an hour, and the exact address slips my mind. I couldn’t possibly give direction, talk on phone, and take notes all while driving.

 

So I of course arrive at the “wrong one.” I inform their team of my needs and which store is my local pharmacist. But the stare of confusion I get in return was priceless. All 4 techs completely freeze, and have no idea how to solve this riddle.

 

Super Stephen back to the rescue! I hop on the phone, tell my pharmacist where I arrived. But now I am brokering a conversation between two stores because its against pharmacy law to use a patients cell phone. Eventually, with me as the translator, they arrive at this solution: FAX. Ha Ha Ha.

 

At this point my blood is boiling and I pace the aisles looking for a fever reducer.

 

After about another 20 minutes, 3 failed faxes, two phone calls, and a partridge in a pear tree, they did eventually fill my prescription. And I did make my flight. So no harm no foul, right?

WHY BIG DATA, HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS REQUIRE KEY PARTNERSHIPS?

WHY BIG DATA, HEALTHCARE ANALYTICS REQUIRE KEY PARTNERSHIPS? | HEALTHCARE REVOLUTIONS eDIGEST | Scoop.it
In order for healthcare organizations and providers to transition from reactive to proactive care, they will need to rely on new and emerging health IT tools that allow them to predict patient outcomes and provide intervention where necessary. This optimism for big data and healthcare analytics, however, is met by uncertainty as hospitals and physicians grapple with how to implement these solutions into their clinical workflows.

 

“That’s the part they’re most excited about and frankly that’s where they have the most deficiencies in terms of staff knowledge, tool sets, and capabilities,” says Curt Sellke, Vice President of Analytics at the Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE). “Predictive analytics is new enough for everybody that people are looking for a trusted partner.”To prepare for the move toward predictive analytics, IHIE recently announced a strategic partnership with Predixion Software to develop a solution for accountable care organizations (ACOs) and hospitals in Indiana to reduce preventable readmissions. The partnership brings together two crucial components for healthcare analytics: a rich data set and predictive modeling.According to Sellke, those looking to adopt healthcare analytics face a couple significant challenges. At the top of the list is access to health data.“First and foremost is it’s very hard to sometimes to get at the data you need in order to power your analytics,” he explains. “It is spread across different organizations or so many different silos within an organization, that just aggregating, accumulating, and cleaning it is really a tough thing to do.”Once that data is in hand, the challenge then becomes making that information meaningful (i.e., useful) to providers.“As you begin to generate some of these analyses you begin to see some trends and measures,” observes Sellke, “Can we make that information actionable, so that not only have you identified that something is happening or perhaps is going to happen on the predictive side? What do you do to intervene to make that better? That’s the second part of this.”Addressing these challenges is where establishing key partnerships comes into play and why IHIE is beginning its work on predictive analytics and readmissions with Indiana ACOs and hospitals. “We are starting with the ACOs because right now it would have the minimal impact on current workflows. They are laser focused on readmissions because they have both clinical and financial incentives,” says Sellke.By demonstrating the value of big data and healthcare analytics for ACOs and hospitals, IHIE hopes to build a case for widespread adoption of these tools and services in Indiana and beyond.“That’s why we’ve chosen the ACO side,” Sellke maintains. “That’s kind of the lowest-hanging fruit, and we figure as we roll out something new can we have it gain some traction, gain some favorable results there, and it makes the job of then bringing it out to a broader group even easier because there’s a case study behind it, return of investment kinds work, etc.”And as the value of predictive analytics grows, so too should its applicability to other areas of healthcare, claims Sellke.“Where we’re going to spend our energies over the next three to six months is going into our clinical data repository and sourcing the information that’s necessary to power the model,” he reveals. “There’s a notion that says we would like to be able to be in a position to produce a brand-new model for some specific use case in three- to six-month intervals.”The adoption of intelligent tools is half of the task of the healthcare industry’s shift to wellness. The other is the collaboration of forward-thinking healthcare organizations, providers, and vendors.

BENEFITS OF BIG DATA IN HEALTHCARE

BENEFITS OF BIG DATA IN HEALTHCARE | HEALTHCARE REVOLUTIONS eDIGEST | Scoop.it

 

 

In the week leading up to this year’s MIT Chief Data Officer Information Quality Symposium, SiliconANGLE presented a series previewing the event, themed ‘Big Data Demands Good Data’. Our series focused on presenting a synopsis of some of the important topics scheduled to be covered in Cambridge the following week.

Today we are re-visiting the presentation offered by Dr. David Levine, Vice President of Informatics/Medical Director of Comparative Data and Informatics for United Healthcare. In his session, Levine addressed how the recent and rapid improvements in both data collection and data analytics must be embraced by health administrators in order to affect better patient care.

However, the difference between saying and doing is, at times, difficult to overcome. The mountains of data collected by the healthcare industry require education in the ability to analyze it with the intent of designing better predictive models for both patient care and hospital administration. As mentioned in our preview article, Chris Belmont, CIO at New Orleans’ Ochsner Health System stated, “We have the data points. We just have to do a better job of getting our hands around the data and understanding it better.”

On SiliconANGLEs theCUBE, which live-streamed from the symposium, hosts Dave Vellante and Paul Gillin sat down with Anthony Donofrio, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice-President with Truven Healthcare Analytics, to discuss the future of data collection and data analytics within the healthcare industry, specifically.

Donofrio’s company offers analytic products at all levels in the healthcare industry. He breaks it down to consumers, providers and payers, with each community receiving data analysis for their specific community.
