This case study looks at how a healthcare alliance of more than 2,700 hospitals and 90,000 additional healthcare facilities enhanced data sharing and analytics through big data technology. The solution aggregated clinical, financial and operational data, benchmarked it and analyzed performance—all in a near real-time way. As a result, participating hospitals cut spending by $2.85 billion through the reduction of unnecessary procedures, readmissions, ER visits and hospital acquired health conditions.
