“Every century, a new technology – steam power, electricity, atomic energy, or microprocessors – has swept away the old world with the vision for a new one. Today, we seem to be entering the era of Big Data.” — Michael Coren

It’s 2013, and the phrase “Big Data” has officially entered our vernacular in a big way. In the book The Human Face of Big Data, it is defined as “…an extraordinary knowledge revolution that’s sweeping, almost invisibly, through business, academia, government, health care and everyday life.” It’s a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications.

So what does that have to do with your practice? Everything! Information these days has escalated to overwhelming levels and stems from a greater array of sources. Harnessed in the right way, all this data, especially when it’s driven by your revenue cycle management process that impacts the financial health of your practice, can actually leave physicians with more control, not less.

According to Wikipedia, “What is considered ‘big data’ varies depending on the capabilities of the organization managing the set, and on the capabilities of the applications that are traditionally used to process and analyze the data set in its domain.”
