The subjects of "big data" and "predictive analytics" will certainly continue to be a center-stage conversation in healthcare in 2014, but I predict the core of this conversation among many consultants, academic institutions and industry innovators will be answering the following: How will we secure the talent needed to translate big data? The concept of big data has little to do with answering the traditional database query: What data is needed to answer this question? Far beyond an installed technology solution to rapidly query terabytes or even petabytes of data, the potentially game-changing aspect of big data is deciphering whether there is an interesting and unexpected pattern in combined data sets that might be actionable. To accomplish making sense of this multidimensional data, we will need more talent in computer and data science fields, partnered with experts in research and clinical informatics who possess a clear understanding of the story behind the source data and its integrity for later use in downstream metrics and analytics - whether they be descriptive, predictive or prescriptive in nature. - Vicky A.
