The global healthcare data related market is analyzed to reach $206 billion in 2020, from $79 billion in 2015, with a 25 percent annual growth rate. According to IBM, more than 16,000 hospitals around the world are collecting data on patients, and 4.9 million patients are using remote monitoring devices. There are 86,400 new data per patient each day. U.S. Library of Congress says that the size of big data in healthcare generated in this way is 370 TB as of 2012.
The current healthcare data market is evolving with ICT technologies utilizing big data, cloud computing, and the internet of things. This has allowed healthcare data exclusively used by existing medical institutions to be used in a more decentralized and compatible manner.
Despite the rapid pace of development, the healthcare big data market now has some limitations.
Although it is very important information, security is weak and data itself is dispersed and fragmented. For this reason, there is also skepticism about whether we can create value with the healthcare big data.
