'Big Data and the Intelligence Community - Lessons for Health Care'

'The recent explosion of health data - driven by increases in clinical, research, payer, and patient-generated data - promises to transform health care by improving care quality and population health and by constraining escalating costs. But substantial obstacles remain. Many of these data are unstructured and the wide variety of taxonomies and formats makes data sharing and integration challenging. The health care industry's legacy data-management technologies require time-consuming and labor-intensive data modeling and cleansing. Moreover, these tools must be designed with a specific set of questions in mind, and adding or transforming variables or incorporating unstructured objects such as images and audio files into data stores can be difficult. Such limitations make it challenging to take advantage of the value of big data. Health care is lagging behind other industries in its approaches to data science in part because it is relatively new to big data.
In an effort to accelerate progress, experts have frequently exhorted health care leaders to learn from commercial data titans such as Amazon, Google, and Netflix. It is less common to hear that health care should emulate the intelligence community, but we believe these agencies have much to teach'

That's just what we need. More commercial spyware.
