DataCare: Big data analytics solution for intelligent healthcare management
In this 2018 paper published in the International Journal of Interactive Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence , Baldominos et al. present DataCare, a scalable healthcare data management solution built on a big data architecture to improve healthcare performance, including patient outcomes. Designed to provide "a complete architecture to retrieve data from sensors installed in the healthcare center, process and analyze it, and finally obtain relevant information, which is displayed in a user-friendly dashboard," the researchers explain the architecture and how it was evaluated in a real-life facility in Madrid, Spain. They also explain how key performance indicators are affected and how the system could be improved in the future.
