This post is the second in a series on the Internet of Things (IoT), a topic we've never really focused on in past blog posts. While the first discussed the applications of IoT in supply chain management, this one will focus specifically on its applicability to healthcare. (As many of our readers know, we’re particularly interested in advanced analytics, IoT, Big Data and similar topics as they relate to expanding the healthcare industry and helping to tackle some of the many deeply ingrained problems the industry faces.)
Many people aren't yet aware that the healthcare space is the perfect industry for leveraging prescriptive analytics. To mix it up a bit, we've chosen to present 10 use cases for prescriptive analytics in healthcare in infographic form. Please feel free to share this among your friends, colleagues and social network!
The healthcare system of the future will be one where continuous improvements in patient experience andoperational efficiency are informed by data and decisions that are directed by prescriptive analytics. To achieve continuous improvement and drive optimization of healthcare value, we have to shift analytics from monitoring and reporting of what has happened, to using analytics to make decisions.
