The Role of Data Lakes in Healthcare

According to information technology research and advisory company Gartner, there is a market shift towards hybrid approaches to data management, as companies look to solve complex challenges with a mix of alternative and traditional deployments.

Healthcare providers and health plans are asking the question, “Do we need an enterprise data warehouse, a data lake, or both as part of our overall data architecture?” This question is top of mind with healthcare executives who are challenged to improve medical outcomes for patients, drive patient and member engagement, and bend the cost curve.
