Healthcare is complex and expensive. Data analytics, particularly big data analytics, is a topic of great interest in the modern world for business and industry due to quintillion bytes of data that is created every day. Specifically, healthcare data is one of the most complex and is also one of the largest data producers in the industry. The amount of data being produced every day in healthcare is simply enormous to process and scale.

The aim of this Special issue is to look at various aspects of healthcare data challenges, and how big data analytics can help address the problems in healthcare domain. It will contain papers on both the theoretical and the practical applications. We invite and encourage authors to design and develop solutions and recommendations that can overcome difficulties and limitations such as in data processing, data integration, and data mining, to produce meaningful healthcare analytics. Data visualization is another area of exploration to deliver clear and intuitive analytics to healthcare recipients such as patients, providers and payers. Interactive dashboards can highlight key insights from clinical, financial, and operational metrics that are derived from big data analytics. Big data analytics can mine through data to timely produce patient recommendations and alerts.

Healthcare still remains a domain with enormous potential for data analytics and exploration. We sincerely hope that this special issue will help researchers, academics and professionals highlight and discuss the common challenges and inspire advancements using big data solutions. We also hope it will allow the research community to seek an improved understanding of big data implementation in healthcare.
