Data and Healthcare: Accelerating Patient Care/Outcomes

HOW DATA IS ADVANCING INDUSTRIES

Data is Advancing Healthcare and Research


Improvements in technology, coupled with the convergence of cutting-edge research and data analytics have created a new opportunity in healthcare. Today’s clinical workloads require storage infrastructure advancements that meet their demands and deliver fast, high-quality patient outcomes. The system must be able to quickly access clinical applications, databases, and EHR/EMR, deliver reports, handle customer billing and claims responses in near real time, and speed access to images and test results for fast patient assessments.

The ability to correlate genomic, clinical or behavioral data with advanced treatment information and research can help deliver precise diagnoses, evaluations, and medicine to patients while possibly identifying future risk factors and diseases.

$9.5B in 2023

The global healthcare Big Data Analytics market is expected to reach $9.5 billion by 20231

$136.8B by 2021

The global IoT healthcare market is expected to reach $136.8 billion by 2021 (12.5% CAGR 2015 to 2021)2

$6.6B by 2021

The global AI in healthcare market is projected to reach $6.6 billion by 2021 (40% growth rate)3

Patient data that was once confined to paper/photographic records is now digital. This means powerful database systems and virtualized IT environments are the norm. Add BYOD, tablets, wearables, telemedicine, care network collaboration, AI, and analytics to the mix, and success comes down to your IT.

ACCELERATE FUTURE DISCOVERIES AND CURES

Healthcare and Research Speed Patient Care and Outcomes with Data


Microscopy images are growing in size as new innovative techniques increase their clarity and resolution. That means more bioimages will need to be centrally stored to not only accelerate treatments, evaluations and diagnostics, but to also learn from these large datasets. Combining storage technologies at the edge and in the core, healthcare and research organizations are investing in solutions that properly index, preserve, and provide access to these large bioimaging files, which are critical for future life sciences discoveries and cures.

LIFE SCIENCES EXPERTS AGREE

Genomic medicine attempts to build individualized strategies for diagnostic or therapeutic decision-making by utilizing patients’ genomic information. Big Data analytics uncovers hidden patterns, unknown correlations, and other insights through examining large-scale various data sets. While integration and manipulation of diverse genomic data and comprehensive electronic health records (EHRs) on a Big Data infrastructure exhibit challenges, they also provide a feasible opportunity to develop an efficient and effective approach to identify clinically actionable genetic variants for individualized diagnosis and therapy.
