A new survey by NewVantage Partners shows that a solid 77 percent of health care executives are ramping up their investments in big data analytics and artificial intelligence, HealthITAnalytics reports.
The survey also found, however, that roughly 80 percent of key players in data analytics reported complications with adopting big data analytics and AI. According to the report, 92.5 percent cited both cultural and organizational resistance as significant hurdles.
“Healthcare firms are well represented this year — a sharp uptick from previous years,” the survey states. “These are businesses that are undergoing rapid transformation — data rich, but often less data-mature.”
Representing some 65 companies, the survey posted a higher participation rate which it says “highlights the rising priority of big data and AI within healthcare, and the increasing data maturity of healthcare firms.”
