简介
  • The goals of this organization are to establish a pan-governmental big data network and analysis systems, promote data convergence between the government and the private sector, build a public data diagnosis system, improve the laws for the system, produce talented professionals and retrain them, guarantee the privacy and security of personal information, develop big data infrastructure technologies, and develop big data management and analytical technologies.
  • An increasing number and variety of organizations, including healthcare-related companies, are beginning to apply big data to address multiple healthcare challenges, such as supporting research, transforming data to information, and assisting providers to improve patient care.

  • The main purpose of this study is to explore whether the big data can effectively reduce healthcare concerns such as the selection of appropriate treatment paths, improvement of healthcare systems, and so on
  • The big data issue looms large over many healthcare stakeholders in developed and developing countries
  • As most governments and healthcare stakeholders are currently operating big data projects or are in the planning stage, they need a step-by-step approach to setting the right goals and entertaining realistic expectations regarding big data. Their success will depend on the ability to develop technical capabilities to effectively integrate and analyze information—using new technologies (e.g., Hadoop), develop the right support systems, and support effective decision making through analytics [12]
  • By providing an overview of the current state of big data applications in the healthcare environment, this study has explored the current challenges that governments and healthcare stakeholders are facing, and the opportunities presented by big data
  • This paper offers the following observations and insights—for follower countries or healthcare stakeholders-concerning the current state of big data applications in the medical sector
结果
  • As the authors looked at the practical application of big data in the healthcare environment, the authors found that healthcare big data has different attributes and values and poses different challenges compared to the business sector.
  • The purpose of big data management is similar, a better understanding of the problems, the values sought, and the challenges involved differ considerably between business firms and healthcare organizations.
  • Business firms use big data to deal with customers’ needs and behavior patterns, develop unique core competencies, and create innovative products or services, whereas governments and healthcare stakeholders use big data and predictive analytics to search for sustainable solutions to such issues as tracking public health, determining and implementing appropriate treatment paths for patients, supporting clinical improvements, monitoring the safety of healthcare systems, assuring managerial control, and promoting health system accountability
  • By providing an overview of the current state of big data applications in the healthcare environment, this study has explored the current challenges that governments and healthcare stakeholders are facing, and the opportunities presented by big data.
  • This paper offers the following observations and insights—for follower countries or healthcare stakeholders-concerning the current state of big data applications in the medical sector.
结论
  • All big data projects in leading countries’ governments and healthcare industries have similar general common goals, such as the provision of easy and equal access to public services, better citizens’ healthcare services, and the improvement of medical-related concerns.
  • Governments and healthcare stakeholders need to establish an advanced analytics agency, which will be tasked with developing strategies on how big data could be best managed through new technology platforms and analytics as well as how to secure skilled professional staff to use the new tools and techniques.

persons: 10
In the period January–June 2011, one in every five persons was a member of a household experiencing problems in paying its medical bills, while one in four persons was in a family paying medical bills over time. Notably, one in 10 persons was in a family that had medical bills they were unable to pay at all. The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK provides public healthcare to all permanent residents (about 58 million people)
