Healthcare Case Study
The healthcare industry has constantly faced remarkable changes for decades. There have been a number of factors which have been responsible for this rapid change. These factors include payment models which are extremely value-based, initiatives taken by the government to promote access to excellent care, better involvement of consumers in purchasing decisions of healthcare and above all the digitization of healthcare information. Introduction to such a change has resulted in huge data, mounting results from decision makers for self analysis and the self opinion of the patient. This in return excites the IT organizations of so many insurers and providers.
Sparkflows supports healthcare companies by improving their speed of decision making in the form of data analysts and similar line-of-business users who assist in the ability to prepare, assemble, and analyze data independently, without having the hassle of any coding, any delay or any IT dependency.
Organizations across many industries are using data from many different sources. Performing Analytics and ML across them provides great Business Benefits.
However, very few users are enabled to make use of the Big Data Platforms. Data is not accessible, tools are too complex to use and achieving the end to end from Data Cleaning, Data Analytics, Feature Generation to building and analyzing ML models on these Datasets becomes very hard. This leads to frustration and failure of the Use Cases we set about to solve.
Problem Statement/ Challenges
They want to keep costs in control, and at the same time provide better services. They want to ensure to keep churn under control, better predict their customers diseases and pro-actively handle them.
