Transforming HEALTHCARE through Big Data Intensive Technology: Transforming Healtcare with Big Data, Machine Learning and Internet of Things""
Navneet Srivastava, Pratyush Singh
Integrate cutting-edge data-driven technology to improve the quality, reach and effectiveness of preventive healthcare. Use statistical modeling to derive insights and make revolutionary changes in the healthcare industry so that the physical distance between patients and health specialists becomes immaterial. Transforming Healthcare through Big Data Intensive Technology demonstrates how important it is to build collaboration between patients, clinics, businesses, government, and healthcare organizations, with a goal of safe, effective, predictive and efficient patient care.
Topics covered are:
- With the emergence of wearable technology, a person can capture early key indicators from their body without going to a diagnosis center
- Data generated by sensors can be gathered through a connected device either at a centralized location or in the cloud
- Further data will be enriched by non-wearable diagnosis tools available at established diagnostics centers
- A centralized analytics center will mine data using statistical modeling so that best healthcare recommendation can be communicated back to patients
Imagine that you could get optimal preventive health advice on a regular basis without seeking an appointment from your doctor and without disturbing your normal routine. This book describes multiple tangible and intangible benefits that can be enabled by this visionary solution for the healthcare industry.
The future of the healthcare industry requires a comprehensive solution (supported by data-intensive technologies) that makes preventive medication proactive. This allows patients and even healthy people to get recommendations without delay.
