re: Think Small Data Before Big Data, Healthcare Gurus Argue
I think all you have to do is look at many of the successful Medicare Advantage organizations in the current market to understand that even small data elements can have significant impacts. For example, the usage of at home scales and case managers to treat CHF with amazing outcomes. While "big data" is definitely useful it takes "big resources". Both are definitely needed in the market place.
