Can Machine Learning Tame Healthcare’s Big Data?

Big data is both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that if we use it well, it will tell us important things we don’t know about patient care processes, clinical improvement, outcomes and more. The curse is that if we don’t use it, we’ve got a very expensive and labor-hungry boondoggle on our hands.

But there may be hope for progress. One article I read today suggests that another technology may hold the key to unlocking these blessings — that machine learning may be the tool which lets us harvest the big data fields. The piece, whose writer, oddly enough, was cited only as “Mauricio,” lead cloud expert at Cloudwards.net, argues that machine learning is “the most effective way to excavate buried patterns in the chunks of unstructured data.” While I am an HIT observer rather than techie, what limited tech knowledge I possess suggests that machine learning is going to play an important role in the future of taming big data in healthcare.
