The sheer amount of health data generated by individual patients is already becoming overwhelming for many healthcare organisations. With the potential of wearable technologies and the growing trend of consumers tracking their own health information, the explosion of big data in healthcare isn’t soon to slow down.

Finding effective ways to aggregate, analyse and prioritise patient data for improved care delivery falls on today’s healthcare IT leaders.
