Abstract

Healthcare providers treat a plethora of conditions associated with the human body for a patient to achieve optimal healthiness. However, aspects of a patients' entire wellbeing can often be overlooked, which leads to issues such as drug interactions, missed diagnoses, and other gaps in care. Healthcare can benefit from implementing better data management and integration to improve data analysis, which could bridge gaps in care. This chapter will explain data analysis and data integration, why they are pertinent in the healthcare system, and their associated rewards and challenges. After analyzing these healthcare facets, this chapter will conclude with a proposal for healthcare providers to leverage technology for patients' general wellbeing and a healthier population.
