Data-driven Health Care

Harnessing the benefits of analytics
- in patient care and hospital management

A Nordic perspective

What is health care data analytics?

The health care sector is mandated to provide high quality care to every patient in every hospital. Health authorities are compelled to keep health care costs from accelerating and keep improving quality of care, despite aging populations and increasing numbers of chronic patients across the Nordics. In order to meet these pressing needs, public officials, hospital managers and specialized doctors can use advanced analytics to: 

  • Gain insight from data and provide decision support.
  • Evaluate the performance of the health care sector at individual and national level.
  • Use AI capabilities such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, forecasting and optimization to unleash the full potential of data.
  • Improve population health, patient outcome and cost control.


How can you improve health care with advanced analytics? 

The Nordic countries experience a continuous rise in health care costs. This is in part due to more complex demands and potentially avoidable complications. Analytics can help you ensure a focused, high-quality care enabling health care professionals to save patient lives, reduce hospital burden and ensure more patients receive the right treatment.
