Big Data Applications in Healthcare Administration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The healthcare industry has a growing record of using big data-related technologies such as data analytics, internet of things, and machine learning, especially in the clinical areas. However, healthcare institutions must also perform all of the administrative processes just as any other organization. Thus, like many other industries, healthcare has begun to apply these same technologies to improve their understanding of these internal operations and use them to make better decisions and run a more effective operation. This study takes a structured literature review approach to describe the current state of this literature and identify the major themes and priorities of both the research community and the healthcare industry as a whole. The contribution made by this study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the state of the literature to use as a foundation for the future research opportunities noted in the paper.
