Big Data Strategy
Alison at LexisNexis Risk Solutions we are actively engaged in using the open source HPCC Systems data intensive compute platform along with the massive LexisNexis Public Data Social Graph to tackle everything from fraud waste and abuse, drug seeking behavior, provider collusion to disease management and community healthcare interventions. We have invested in analytics that help map the social context of events through trusted relationships to create better understanding of the big picture that surrounds each healthcare event, patient, provider, business, assets and more. For an interesting case study visit:

Re: Due North Analytics
Thanks for sharing Due North's story. This slideshow was meant to only encapsulate a few of the many stories out there -- and there'll be many more to come in the months and years ahead. There are many startups entering this space right now, in part because there's quite a lot of investment capital floating around. Investors are bullish on this market -- and rightly so, IMHO. Whenever I see news stories trumpeting the results of multiple studies across many years, I realize the power of analytics (and perhaps big data) was behind those findings. And this is only the beginning.

Due North Analytics
We totally understand the importance of Big Data for the healthcare industry. We started our company knowing that we could help Healthcare institutions do three things. 1 Predict potential rates, so they can predict the fluctuation of symptoms and plan accordingly with staffing, equipment and insurance rates. 2. Predict patient trends so that you can understand what diseases they may be vulnerable to in the future. 3. Determine the effectiveness of medication. Knowing what is working and not working could save patients and insurance companies a lot of money. Even though we are a start up we believe our technology is at the forefront of the industry. Check out, Due North so you can learn more about our company and Join forces with our team for enhanced, affordable, high quality reporting, modeling, and analytics.
