Big data and public health systems: Issues and opportunities

This 2018 article published in International Journal of Interactive Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence sees Rosas and Carnicero provide their professional take—from their experience with the Spanish and other European public health system—on the benefits and challenges of implementing big data management solutions in the world of health care. After citing numbers on public and private health expenditures in relation to population, as well as reviewing literature on the subject of bid data in healthcare, the authors provide insight into some of the data systems, how they’re used, and what challenges their implementation pose. They conclude that “the implementation of big data must be one of the main instruments for change in the current health system model, changing it into one with improved effectiveness and efficiency, taking into account both healthcare and economic outcomes of health services.”
