Big data refers to a collection of data that cannot be processed in a timely manner using traditional database applications. Big data analytics examines large amounts of data to uncover hidden patterns, correlations and other insights. With today’s technology, it’s possible to analyze your data and get answers from it almost immediately – an effort that’s slower and less efficient with more traditional business intelligence solutions.In the health-care and pharmaceutical industries, data growth is generated from several sources; including Healthcare the R&D process itself, retailers, patients, and caregivers. Effectively utilizing these data will help pharmaceutical and healthcare companies better identify new potential drug candidates and develop them into effective, approved and reimbursed medicines more quickly.By digitizing, combining and effectively using big data, healthcare organizations ranging from single-physician offices and multi-provider groups to large hospital networks and accountable care organizations stand to realize significant benefits.The emergence of big data, as well as advancements in data science approaches and technology, is providing pharmaceutical companies with an opportunity to gain novel insights that can enhance and accelerate drug development.It will increasingly help government health agencies, payers, and providers to make decisions about such issues as drug discovery, patient access, and marketing.
