Using Big Data Analytics to Optimize Clinical Care Pathways
This work discusses the role of “Big Data” analytics to unlock insights about actions for optimal care outcomes. This research identifies three key challenges in using patient clinical data for quality and outcomes improvement; showcases how Big Data analytics techniques are applied to effectively use multi-modal patient data; and reviews three care scenarios, including hospital admissions, that can be mapped and optimized using data-driven insights.
