The field of data analytics has progressed signficantly over the last few years. The usefulness of data analytics in healthcare cannot be denied. Big data analysis has been shown to be useful in guiding healthcare resource management, optimising system and improving quality of care. It also plays an extremely important role in tracking performance of the healthcare services. However, the process of data collection, gathering and subsequent analysis is unique to individual sectors. Even though many systems in healthcare are now digitalised, the challenges in acquiring useful information, interpreting and comparing them remains challenging. In this talk we will explore the issues of "utilising big data" from our perspective.
