Is Big Data a Hero
in Health Care?

T

HERE IS AN UNSEEN
but cr itic al impact that
technology plays in every
patient interaction. Within
the hospital setting, predictive analytics
help decide many aspects of
patient care, from ensuring
compliance with state and
federal laws, budgeting for
staffing levels, finding and
flagging drug interactions,
tracking drug diversion,
interfacing interactive
wearable medical devices, making
well-timed business investments, tracking
patients' vital signs, researching medical
breakthroughs, managing costs of care
and even the way in which nutritional
and laundry services are delivered at
the patient's bedside. A careful balance
of information and privacy is needed to
provide next-generation care.

DATA SECURITY

Preapproved guests enter a large, nondescript building,
with limited signage, in a nondescript part of Roanoke city. The exact
location is on a need-to-know basis. Razor wire fencing is on one side of
the building. Cameras capture every move from the parking lot to inside
the front door. Guests, including Carilion employees, are required to
bring a valid government ID to gain access into the building.
Once inside the enormous building, a receptionist and security guard
greet visitors in a small atrium. This is intentional. The Carilion
security officer assists guests by scanning a government ID into
a machine not unlike the passport scanners found in airports.
According to Keith Perry, Chief Information Officer of
Carilion Clinic, over 50 security checks are performed
instantly from a government ID, including federal
and state law enforcement watch lists, as well as
compliance issues with programs such as those
with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS).
W ith an enor mous amount of
data shared among internal and
external partners, Perry explains
