Main Discussion post Big data refers to the large volume of structured and unstructured data available to healthcare providers.

The data mining is a necessity in today's health system. With the use of information technology, the health care organization produce and collect a large volume of information daily. The knowledge gained by data mining is used to improve work efficiency and quality of the decisionmaking process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
