The healthcare industry must quickly transform to become data-driven. This change will facilitate increased efficiency while decreasing medical errors and costs. Although early on in the collection and analysis of electronic data, the industry is poised to outstrip all others in terms of velocity, volume, variety and complexity of data. For example, advances in electronic medical records, imaging, and genetic analysis, have all helped to propel healthcare related data in the U.S. alone to over 150 exabytes – much of it being unstructured.
A central barrier to leveraging data in healthcare has been lack of ability to link data from different sources. Even connecting information across electronic medical records has been notoriously difficult, let alone fully understanding the relationships between clinical data, consumer or behavioral data, and claims data. This is particularly important as behavior and environment can have a bigger impact on life than clinic care.
To meet the Big Data needs, Tresata is using a three-pronged approach leveraging our deep domain knowledge, incredible technology leadership, and breakthrough data science.
Tresata’s software has already processed more than 1 trillion rows of data across 1 billion consumers, 100 million small businesses and 1 million corporations. We have successfully automated complex business processes (from entity resolution to risk analysis), introduced the revolutionary ‘segment of one’ customer analytics capability, and trained machines to understand patient behaviors.
