Big data is an abstract term. Big Data has been attributed as having “transformative potential” in healthcare systems, with benefits across the entire pathway of care delivery for all stakeholders. Linkage of previously separated data sets and their analysis using appropriate Big Data analytics offer new ways to accelerate research and to identify the right treatment for individual patients (personalized medicine). Access to large data sets gives a more comprehensive picture of patients, allows patient-related outcomes to be measured more accurately, and supports decision-makers in shaping healthcare systems.
Big data in blood cancer research that is what the HARMONY Alliance is about.
We have created 3 videos for a broader audience. In a short animated manner, we aim to explain what HARMONY is, its reason for being and how to understand what making use of big data analytics could mean for patients with Hematologic Malignancies (HM). In addition data quality, safety, and privacy are addressed.
