Generating insight in healthcare by interacting with Big Data sources

Presented by

Stephen Black, Senior Manager, Deloitte on behalf of Tableau Software

About this talk

One of the major barriers to improving healthcare is making sense of the large volume of data involved. We show that a combination of Google's BigQuery and Tableau allows insightful, interactive analysis of English primary care prescribing data – approximately £35bn of NHS spend, £4.5 bn prescriptions issued by 10k GP practices from about 25k drugs). Tableau can allow insights into national trends but also allow interactive drill down to analyse local prescribing patterns for narrow ranges of drugs. We show how interaction even with large datasets greatly improves the impact of analysis on behaviour.
