Synopsis: Cognitive Computing and Big Data Analytics

The healthcare industry is focused on providing a healthier future to patients through better care delivery, improved quality and better access to care. The healthcare industry has been overloaded with data coming from various sources like wearables, health monitors, doctors, patients, insurance companies, hospital ERP systems, EMRs, etc. Traditional and advanced analytics have been used by healthcare providers to mine and analyse the data to understand the patients better. However, the constraints of traditional analytics methods limits the use of data to its full extent, thus forming a performance gap. This gap can be filled by cognitive computive with its power to complement traditional analytics.
