Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Technology megatrends such as cloud computing, social networking, and big data analytics exert a positive influence on smart mobile technologies. These trends have boosted the use of smart mobile technologies in healthcare, reducing costs and improving outcomes. Mobile devices will reduce the need for patients to visit hospitals when they need a diagnosis or follow-up check-ups. Healthcare organizations are leveraging mobile health technologies to reduce medical costs and help in effective remote patient monitoring. Also, patients participate in their healthcare decisions through the application of mobile technology. This is generating large volumes of data, which has boosted the use of big data analytics in healthcare. Further, the need to analyze and monitor healthcare information will ultimately fuel spending on big data in the healthcare industry during the forecast period.”
According to the report, healthcare reforms have generated large volumes of medical and commercial data. The real-time analysis of this data offers powerful insights about patient health and helps monitor patients effectively. The growing volumes of data, the processing requirements of large volumes of data, and the need to derive actionable insights are major issues for many healthcare organizations. Big data provides the necessary technologies to process large volumes of data and provide insights to all stakeholders, resulting in better patient care and cost reductions. It helps optimize patient outcomes while reducing costs by providing faster treatment, improving physician performance, avoiding re-admissions, and offering personalized medicine. Patients also play a significant role in reducing healthcare costs by participating in healthcare decisions. All these factors fuel big data spending by healthcare organizations.
Further, the report states that high complexity and cost hinders the adoption of big data in the healthcare industry.
