Abstract

‘Big data’ is defined by ‘7 V’s’: volume (most frequently cited1), velocity, veracity, variety, volatility, validity and value. In healthcare, ‘big data’ is associated with a step-change in the way information is gathered, analysed and used to facilitate disease management and prevention. With greater electronic data capture, there is enthusiasm for increased safety, efficiency and effectiveness in health and social care through, for example, machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence (AI). However, factors maintaining and widening the gap between the promise and the reality need to be addressed.
