Why Should You Care About Big Data?

Big data

We are gearing up for HIMSS 2013 here at Lexmark this week. HIMSS is one of the largest information technology healthcare shows in the country and will be held in New Orleans, March 3 to 7.

The Lexmark healthcare team will be attending the show in full force, so we’ve decided to share some insights into Lexmark’s healthcare specific offerings over the next two weeks. One of the topics we will be talking about is Big Data.

What is Big Data? Big Data is data that is too large, complex and dynamic for any conventional data tools to capture, store, manage and/or analyze.

According to Executive Insight Magazine, $765 billion of the money spent in healthcare annually is essentially wasted and Big Data can help drive down those costs.
