Abstract

In recent years, the total amount of medical data collected has grown exponentially, mainly because of the introduction of new medical technologies and the increased use of IT to manage medical health records of patients. These technologies have been introduced not only to provide higher quality of care but also to help solve some of the major healthcare problems in developed countries: the lack of productivity and efficiency, the increasing costs and the relatively low accessibility of the system. Big Data, or the capability to develop, analyze and visualize huge and complex data sets for various research interests and applications, has the promise to radically impact the speed and direction in tackling these problems. Health care field grows tremendously in last few decades. The health care field has generated huge amounts of data that has huge volume, enormous velocity and vast variety. Also it comes from a variety of new sources as hospitals are now tend to implemented electronic health record (EHR) systems. These sources have strained the existing capabilities of existing conventional relational database management systems. In such scenario, Big Data solutions offer to harness these massive, heterogeneous and complex data sets to obtain more meaningful and knowledgeable information. This paper basically studies the impact of implementing the big data solutions on the healthcare field, the potential opportunities, challenges and available platform and tools to implement Big data analytics in health care field.
