Health Care & Data Management
The collection of data serves not only doctors, but patients, insurance providers and many others serving in the health care industry. The idea of collecting data is as old as medical care itself. Doctors and nurses wrote in their journals, updated patient charts, took notes, and documented their processes. That information is now all digital, which creates a data set that is easier to access and share.
A lot of information is being collected from patients these days. Without proper data management, no one would be able to access or decipher the information they need to properly treat their patients.
