With the electronic health record adoption rates rising and the push for a personalized and interactive approach to medicine becomes more prevalent, there is an opportunity for our healthcare system to transform from an inefficient machine into a well-oiled producer of actionable, meaningful information.  And this opportunity begins at the point of patient data capture.  Currently, it’s estimated that if “healthcare big data” is leveraged effectively, it could create $300 billion in value every year.
