  • 8. Conclusion•  Health care is still in the early days of using big data and analytics models derived from big data tools.•  Many startups are hesitant to invest in this sector, due to the regulatory challenges with HIPAA as well as the degree of fragmentation and the traditionally slow adoption of new technologies.•  These are all barriers to entry, but for those willing to take a risk, the overall business opportunity in health care is strong.
