Healthcare: We all have a stake in its transformation

Consumerism, social and mobile apps, federal mandates, competition and new partnerships are all influencing healthcare transformation. The industry must move toward integrated systems of care that enable holistic views of the patient in the context of the population, socio-economic status, and individual traits and behaviors. Big data facilitates the capture and analysis of information from an increasing variety of sources, structured and unstructured, from medical records, electronic monitoring and other devices. It fuels cooperation among payers, providers, researchers and, with a holistic view of the individual, big data can enable new ways of delivering care.
