Big Data


The term “Big Data” means the access to, and more importantly, analysis of huge sets of data created by medical providers and devices while treating patients. The end goal is to use the huge sets of data to gain insights into patient care and the human body with statistical analysis. Companies like SAS, Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and Dell all make technologies that allow massive sets of data to be managed and analyzed for insights to improve health.
