2014: The Year of Healthcare Big Data
By Daniel Piekarz
Daniel Piekarz, VP of Life Sciences Business Development at DataArt, shares the 2014 trends with the Electronic Health Reporter.
“The life sciences industry will be defined in 2014 by the growing market demand to apply newly developed technology, including big data analysis, to healthcare and medical device practices… Over the next year, trends that reflect newly available technology will start to develop. The adoption of healthcare big data technology will become a major theme, just as it has in several other industries… Tied to the big data trend is the emergence of personal healthcare data aided by physicians’ adoption of EHR technology… Aside from [that], the industry’s response to the FDA’s newly released guidance for cyber security management in medical devices will be another big theme in 2014.”
