Analytics

The growth in medical records presents an opportunity for healthcare providers to improve the quality of care and identify operational efficiencies. To gain a full understanding of the intelligence locked within EHR databases, healthcare providers need to use analytics and big data solutions that are designed to identify trends. The intelligence gained is considered essential to management of healthcare as payers are moving to replace fee-for-service with value-based payment models. Analytics will also play an important role in the delivery of precision medicine, as discoveries in genomics and drug interactions open new treatment paradigms.
