Medical breakthroughs require advanced IT infrastructure

Healthcare organizations are waging battles against cancer, diabetes and heart disease while also struggling to beat the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the fact all of these illnesses have different symptoms and causes they all have something in common. Big Data is being fed into models that can find potential treatment and cures.

Big Data for Better Health

Big data is an essential tool used to monitor and protect public health. Medical data is collected from millions of people, anonymized, and then pooled together for a basis of analysis.  The abundance of massive amounts of data makes it possible to reach statistically significant findings based on algorithmic models that can predict which populations are at risk for certain ailments.    

There are several examples of how the US is leveraging big data to improve the quality of healthcare. The National Institutes of Health in the United States (NIH) is monitoring over a million people, including collecting genetic information, biological samples, and other information about their medical condition to prevent and improve treatment of diseases.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is developing models to identify groups in the population that are at risk of obesity, thus allowing medical intervention at an early age. The US Army Veterans Medical Database has used big data to identify that diabetics are at a higher risk of developing mental illness than other populations.

Medical data is more abundant for research due to advances in Internet of Medical Technologies (IoMT). Most devices are connected to computer networks to collect and transmit medical data. Typically, medical devices that monitor patients, perform lab tests, or capture medical images, upload results to the a centralized datacenter for analysis.  In addition, more and more people are equipped with wearables to monitor their heart rates, sugar levels, UVA exposure and more.  As a result healthcare data is projected to grow faster than in manufacturing, financial services, or media with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36 percent through 2025.
