Big Data in the Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Industry: 2017 – 2030 – key market drivers, challenges, investment potential, application areas and value chain

Big Data investments in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry will account for nearly $4 Billion in 2017 alone. Led by a plethora of business opportunities for healthcare providers, insurers, payers, government agencies, pharmaceutical companies and other stakeholders, these investments are further expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 15% over the next three years.

The big data in the healthcare and pharmaceutical market is projected to register substantial growth over the forecast period (from 2017 to 2030). The term big data refers to data sets that can store a large amount of data. It differs from a common relational database. Big data is less expensive and has a minimal structure. In the healthcare industry, some research and academic institutions have started experimenting with big data. These institutes are also using it in some advanced research projects.

One of the latest trends in big data in the healthcare sector includes real-time patient monitoring. Various healthcare facilities focus on providing more proactive patient care by constantly monitoring them for vital signs. This data can be analyzed in real-time and then alerts can be sent to caregivers so that they are instantly informed about any changes in patient conditions. Wearable devices and sensors provide the opportunity for care providers to interact with their patients in innovative ways, making healthcare more persistent and convenient.

Another future trend in healthcare big data includes reducing waste, abuse, and fraud. All of these are the key contributors toward increasing overall healthcare costs across the globe. However, big data analytics can be a breakthrough for fraud, waste, and abuse in the healthcare industry. For example, UnitedHealthcare Inc. shifted to a predictive modeling environment that is based on Hadoop big data platform. It can recognize wrong claims in a systematic way and generate huge returns on their advanced big data technology.
