Big Data Analytics has a wide variety of applications in healthcare.
Predictive analytics can help improve overall hospital quality, the quality of services provided, and the safety of patients. Vulnerable patients are susceptible to infections
and other critical crisis events and it is difficult for hospital staff to predict these.
By using a bedside medical device, smart algorithms can be used to create insights which allows hospital
staff to provide customized care for each patient.
Reducing Preventable Hospital Readmissions
One goal of hospitals is to avoid a preventable readmission within 30 days. Using smart algorithms
that can analyze a patient’s electronic health record (EHR) data, it is possible to reduce hospitable readmissions.
Such systems use parameters from EHR data thereby giving the best care to the patient the first time so that they don’t
need to be readmitted.
