Big Data & Analytics
Digital Edition, June 13, 2013
Necessity is breeding innovation in the health care analytics market as providers and payers, under enormous cost and quality pressures, are adopting analytics tools at an increasingly rapid pace to identify and eliminate the financial and cost inefficiencies that continue to plaque the industry.

Two feature-length stories in this supplement will examine the behind-the-scenes efforts at creating an environment where art and science can both be brought to bear to create value-based health care, where information can drive the decisions of all those involved in delivering the best, safest care at the lowest cost possible.
