IJIMAI 2018 - Special Issue on Big Data and e-health - Vol. 4 Issue 7

Year: 2018, Vol: 4, Number: 7         application/pdf icon

Data are becoming increasingly important in health management. Just think of the advantages that could derive from monitoring the vital signs of any person and their symptoms turning them into an online platform that, upon proper authorization, doctors could access at any time and from any place. This is just an example of the kind of transformation processes that health management is undergoing.

In this improvement of health services triggered by new technologies, Big Data is playing a prominent role. The benefits derived from Big Data are becoming a reality in health fields as diverse as: medical services, synthesis of data from medical histories and clinical analysis, management of health centers, hospital administration, distribution of material (especially relevant to specific epidemic needs), detection and prevention of possible side effects of drugs and treatments, scientific documentation (generation, storage and exploitation), medical research, fight against cancer or Pandemic prevention.

Big Data allows integrating structured and unstructured data effectively. Where Big Data can bring more value is in the analysis of unstructured data, in which there is more knowledge to be discovered and exploited. In addition to all this, there is data coming from social networks and those generated by the Internet of things; devices, sensors, medical instruments, fitness equipment, ...

But the important thing is not to have a lot of data, but the fact that Big Data tools contribute to the design and implementation of efficient processes that help us carry out health care policies based not only on the available data, but also on their interpretation and understanding. This is how it can effectively contribute to improving health care, saving lives, expanding access to health systems and optimizing costs. In this regard, the important role played by Big Data in genomic research and genome sequencing should be mentioned.

This special issue is designed with the primary objective of showing what we have just pointed out: the diversity of fields where big data is used and consequently, how it is increasingly gaining importance as a tool for analysis and research in the field of healing. In this sense there are papers related to the following topics: re-using electronic health records with artificial intelligence, big data analytics solution for intelligent healthcare management, development of a predictive model for successful induction of labour, big data and the efficient management of outpatient visits, development of injury prevention policies following a big data approach, generating big data sets from knowledge-based decision support systems to pursue value-based healthcare, the use of administrative records of health information both for diagnoses and patients, and an analysis of the European public health system model and the corresponding healthcare and management-related information systems, the challenges that these health systems are currently facing, and the possible contributions of big data solutions to this field.

IJIMAI 2017 - Special Issue on 3D Medicine and Artificial Intelligence - Vol. 4 Issue 5

Year: 2017, Vol: 4, Number: 5         application/pdf icon

Although Medicine has always been considered a Health Science, today it is not possible to obviate its relationship with other disciplines as Humanities and Basic Sciences. Doctors from everywhere and everyday work with the most sophisticated technology are trying to make their profession more accurate and precise, taking in consideration, at the same time, the human part of their daily labour.

In this volume of the Journal, we will try to explore the relation between different medical specialities, basic science and engineering. In fact, modern Medicine requires the participation of these professionals who are involved with doctors in multidisciplinary teams. In this sense, Medical Engineering, is a new degree that is offered in a vast number of Universities along the world.

This relationship between Medicine and Sciences can be found in any medical speciality so that, our aim in this volume, is to show different examples of doctors working together with other scientifics in any area of Medical sciences.

The volume consists on twelve papers. Each paper explores a particular area of this multidisciplinary approach.

IJIMAI 2016 - Special Issue on Big Data and AI - Vol. 3 Issue 6

Year: 2016, Vol: 3, Number: 6         application/pdf icon

Digital information has redefined the way in which both public and private organizations are faced with the use of data to improve decision making. The importance of Big Data lies in the huge amount of data generated every day, especially following the emergence of online social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc.) and the exponential growth of devices such as smartphones, smartwatches and other wearables, sensor networks, etc. as well as the possibility of taking into account increasingly updated and more varied information for decision making.

With proper Big Data analysis we can spot trends, get models from historical data for predicting future events or extract patterns from user behaviour, and thus be able to tailor services to the needs of users in a better way.

Using Big Data is becoming widespread among organizations of all kinds. It is a fact that large companies, start-ups, government agencies and non-governmental organizations are gradually being encouraged to use microdata generated by digital devices to operate more efficiently. When these microdata are aggregated they turn into massive amounts of data which require specialized tools and skills to be managed.

The challenge organizations are facing is that the increasing amount of data is too large or too unstructured to be managed and analysed with traditional methods. Think of the data derived from the sequence of clicks from the Web, social media content - tweets, blogs, Facebook wall postings (Facebook alone accounts for more than 1 billion active users generating social interaction content. Google processes on average over 53 thousand search queries per second, making it over 4.6 billion in a single day) - or radio frequency identification systems, which generate up to a thousand times more data than conventional barcode systems (12 million RFID tags – used to capture data and track movement of objects in physical world – had been sold in by 2011. By 2021, it is estimated that that number will have risen to 209 billion. Walmart manages more than 1 million customer transactions per hour). In the World 10.000 payment card transactions are recorded every second. The amount of data transferred over mobile networks increased by 81% to 1.5 Exabyte per month between 2012 and 2014. More than 5 billion people make phone calls, send text messages and surf the Internet with mobile phones. Every day they send 340 million tweets (4.000 per second!). To date they’ve generated 2.5 trillion bytes of data. However, very little of this information is in the form of rows and columns of traditional databases.
