Abstract

Big-Data has opened up enormous opportunities for a variety of industries. Our ability to process large amounts of data, particularly a plethora of types of data, within a unified processing platform has been extremely useful in pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved from our computational models and how we can apply that to solve real life problems. This paper enumerates the main areas where Big-Data has been applied so far and points out areas within healthcare analytics where the same level of success can be gained through adoption of this technology.
