Healthcare Analytics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Ancient understanding of biology, physiology, and medicine was built upon observations of how the body reacted to external stimuli. This indirect approach of documenting and studying the body’s reactions was available long before the body’s internal mechanisms were understood. While medical advances since that time have been truly astounding, nothing has changed the central fact that the study of medicine and the related study of healthcare must begin with careful observation, followed by the collection, consideration, and analysis of the data drawn from those observations. This age-old approach remains the key to current scientific method and practice.
