Healthcare is perhaps one of the most data-intensive industries. The main sources where the data is getting generated is by, medical care providers, public and private payers, ancillary service providers and healthcare consumers. The challenge with data is not about the storage and access, but in making this data usable.

Big Data is big and it is getting even bigger in the healthcare industry. Almost every other healthcare publication and research talk about "Big Data" and its growing impact on the industry. Big Data provides the opportunity to healthcare industry for a paradigm shift; instead of thinking from the patient level up, there is now sufficient data to look at the entire population to extrapolate what will happen to any person. Big Data makes the transition to authentic data-driven healthcare easier by permitting health care professionals to improve the standard of care based on millions of cases.

Whilst Big Data has transformed much of healthcare industry but with the enormous information, sharing and analysis has yet to generate substantial benefits within healthcare. This creates an opportunity for many organizations to enter into an already growing market. A leading consulting firm estimates that US healthcare industry can save up to $300 billion per year with Big Data. Almost 90% of the CEOs in healthcare companies are exploring the ways to manage data in a useful way.

Big Data is already changing the way business decisions are made - and it’s still early in the game. Nevertheless, because Big Data exceeds the capacity and capabilities of conventional storage, reporting and analytics systems, it calls for new problem-solving approaches. With the convergence of powerful computing, advanced database technologies, wireless data, mobility and social networking, organizations can bring together and process Big Data in many profitable ways.

The global healthcare analytics market is estimated at USD 8.61 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 36.06 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 22.25% during the forecast period.

This research report focuses on the opportunities, major development and trends in healthcare IT. It evaluates the needs, challenges and advantages of healthcare organization and how these challenges can be addressed with Big Data.

Data in healthcare is anticipated to grow exponentially in the coming years and will be way above the capability of the traditional methods of data management and data analytics. Additionally, healthcare reimbursement models are moving; meaningful use and pay for performance are coming out as critical new factors in today’s healthcare environment. It is enormously important for healthcare organizations to obtain the available tools, infrastructures and techniques to leverage this vast amount of data efficiently or they may face the risk losing possibly millions of dollars in revenue and profits.

The main solutions providers in the space are Epic, Meditech, Cerner and Mckesson. Microsoft is very active in information lifecycle management. Medispan and Truven are active in clinical support system. One of the analyst from team member said, ""If healthcare organizations see IT transformation as an issue entirely for the CIO, they will fail. organizations will only truly profit from Big Data if they look beyond the silos and share information which is correct, timely and useful. The information has to be on time and useful irrespective of the profile of the user - whether they be managers trying to forecast demand for services or clinicians needing actionable insight in the emergency room"".

The market is driven by federal mandates, personalized medicine and the expansion of the Internet of Things. Increasing government initiatives, pressure to cut healthcare costs, new technological advancement such as mHealth, Internet of Things and wearables are some other factors driving the growth of the Big Data in healthcare market across the care continuum.

Other technologies that are anticipated to see good growth over the next few years consist of EHR market, patient engagement technologies and predictive analytics tools.

Regionally, North America has the biggest share in the pie of global Big Data in healthcare market, whereas Asia-Pacific has appeared as the fastest growing region.
