Story 6: The Secondary Use of Health Data and Data-driven Innovation in the European Healthcare Industry
A growing number of European Healthcare Systems are embarking on long-term reforms to improve outcomes and foster innovation with the ultimate goal of benefiting patients, while, at the same time, ensuring long-term sustainability of healthcare services provision. An un-locked potential is clearly there, as recent evidence has highlighted that the majority of healthcare providers (59%) has not adopted a Digital Transformation roadmap yet and only the 6% has established a unique roadmap for Digital Transformation and general business strategy. This unexplored potential of the use of Big Data and Analytics (BDA) in healthcare is eliciting a new wave of interest in data-driven value creation, which, in the medium to long run, will enable to reward performance rather than just volume.
To better understand how European health systems are approaching and implementing the use of Big Data and Analytics (BDA) and value-based care (VBHC), the present research features four real-life case studies featuring some of the most significant health systems in Europe. This report illustrates some of the most widespread frameworks and best practices for health data collection, sharing, access and usage in Europe’s healthcare sector today and how these frameworks and practices can be fostered to further benefit the wider community of healthcare providers and users.
