Essential Big Data Strategies for Healthcare

The Affordable Care Act is driving fundamental changes in healthcare providers’ operating models. Transitioning from fee-for-service to pay-for-performance means that providers are now more than ever incentivized to reduce hospital readmissions, increase patient satisfaction scores, and deliver value-based care.

The fuel that powers these objectives is data. However, extracting the necessary clinical, operational, and patient data has proved to be a significant hurdle to cross for most providers.
