Data Analytics for Health Care

Health data analytics classify into four types — descriptive, predictive, prescriptive and discovery.

Descriptive Analytics

This data provides information about what has occurred. It reports concrete statistics and displays them in an easy-to-digest way, such as how many patients sought medical treatment during the previous month and the average patient waiting time. Health technology research is useful in resource planning or identifying opportunities for improvement.

Predictive Analytics

This data forecasts the probability of an event occurring. For health care professionals, leveraging this information requires up-to-date figures and robust interoperability that centralizes data and enhances access. Health care data analysts who incorporate such solutions see better decision-making and proactive care opportunities sooner.

Prescriptive Analytics
This information is about the future beyond just predicting a potential event — it provides actionable insights to manage what comes next. Such data is a powerful tool for initiatives like preventing the spread of infection by identifying vulnerable patients or commonalities in care that could lead to outbreaks.

Discovery Analytics
With discovery analytics, health care professionals can better assess potential next steps. This strategy uses sophisticated applications to analyze data that improves patient care, such as developing alternative treatments and new medications. Clinicians can test theories against the data to predict outcomes, which may help quicken new solutions.

Benefits of Using Data Analytics in Health Care Organizations

Advantages to collecting and analyzing health data include:

Disease Prediction

Software applications detect critical patterns to quickly and precisely identify high-risk patients. These methods allow medical professionals to use more proactive treatments and preventive patient care methods.

More Complete Patient Health Records

Robust technology can integrate data from the Internet of Things (IoT) for more insights into patient health. For example, professionals can analyze information from fitness devices to deliver more personalized patient care.

Decision Support

Real-time insights combined with analysis of historical data help clinicians make more informed care decisions. This ability is especially valuable for health professionals treating complex conditions and working in high-stress atmospheres.
