The Age of Big Data Analytics in Health Care has Arrived
Rationale for PALc
Large and small enterprises are collecting, storing, analyzing and using patient data to redefine health care. They are assuming the patient voice.
As the voice of the patient, these enterprises are defining quality, value, equity and improvement.
Yet, when artificial intelligence programs are designed without the insightful perspective of patient advocates the resulting treatment pathways and policies may subordinate patient centricity.
Patient advocacy organizations lacking access to big data analytics may risk loss of relevance in health care decision making and policy formation – PALc can strengthen the patient voice in discussions about access, value frameworks, clinical standards, community programs, and public policies.
