Abstract

Healthcare big data streams from multiple information sources at an alarming volume, velocity, and variety. The challenge that faces the healthcare industry is extracting meaningful value from such sources. This chapter investigates the diversity and forms of data in the healthcare sector, reviews the methods used to search and analyze these data throughout the past years, and the use of machine learning and data mining techniques to mine useful knowledge from such data. The chapter will also highlight innovations of particular systems and tools which spot the fine approaches for different healthcare data, raise the standard of care and recap the tools and data collection methods. The authors emphasize some of ethical issues regarding processing these records and some data privacy issues.
