Predictive Analytics in Healthcare

Predictive analytics is designed to alert patient caregivers or providers of the likelihood of health events and outcomes ahead of time. The goal of using predictive analytics in healthcare is to prevent health issues, as well as treat or cure them.

Predictive Analytics in Healthcare

On a broad level, predictive analytics tools assist in improving patient care quality, while reducing costs. More specifically, analytics can be very useful during many points of patient care, including diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. Information stored in areas such as a data warehouse provides historical data. New data elements are then able to establish trends and calculate a prediction of steps for best practices.

New equipment and technologies will change the future of healthcare. This new equipment can provide even more information such as vital signs and weights. In fact, it will even incorporate exercise information into data using watches, external devices, and Bluetooth capability.

Benefits of Predictive Analytics in Healthcare

From a patient perspective, benefits of predictive analytics include improved collaboration between patient and care team and reduced duplication of medical testing.  Other benefits include diagnosis, and unnecessary travel and treatment, resulting in a positive patient experience. For patient care providers, the use of predictive analytics can be particularly helpful in today’s healthcare environment. Predictive modeling can enhance patient care and outcomes, address health issues before they occur, and reduce cost and risk. Not to mention, it improves clinic workflow and greatly assists care providers with achieving success in today’s healthcare environment.
