The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports: “Big data is already being used in healthcare delivery to help build a ‘learning’ healthcare system where effective practices are identified from clinical data and then disseminated back to providers. It is being used to improve business sales and marketing, education delivery, national security, and law enforcement. It is even being used to improve traffic congestion, emergency response, and energy efficiency. These efforts merely scratch the surface of possibility.
