Health Informatics: Healthcare Data and Analytics
CSC Big Data and Analytics solutions can help healthcare and life sciences organizations that are under pressure to improve patient outcomes and enhance population health – while reducing costs.
Following years of investment in the meaningful use of electronic health records (EHR), healthcare organizations are looking to leverage these assets to accelerate key business and clinical transformations.
Big Data provides new methods to merge traditional structured data with unstructured internal and external data sources to provide rapid, valuable insights for improving organizational performance and population health not previously possible. Organizations can provide better care by combining public life sciences data and clinical trial data to refine diagnosis and treatment protocols.
While it is widely expected that big data and analytics will make a major contribution to healthcare over the next 20 years, it is far from clear exactly how healthcare and life sciences organizations should engage. Many healthcare organizations already have the data they need locked inside EHR systems. However, they lack the foundation practices and capabilities to extract knowledge and insight from this raw data, and integrate those insights into business processes. The challenge is to find solutions that deliver rapid benefit.
CSC provides business process, data science, and platform consulting services – offered as packaged services using best-of-breed technologies and a robust repeatable platform.
CSC leverages its technology independence to offer the building blocks of big data, ranging from an easily repeatable big data platform to full-scale, as-a-Service industry-specific solutions across the shape-transform-manage life cycle. These services help healthcare and life sciences organizations develop effective and actionable insights not previously possible or cost-effective.
Big Data and Analytics for Healthcare
Many CIOs are fully aware that their staff spends more time managing the status quo, gathering and reporting on data, instead of performing valuable analysis of that information.
The Information Age was supposed to help you accelerate decision making. Has it?
Business intelligence and analytics in their newest form represent a significant change in the way data is used in business.

Health Informatics is at the intersection of information science, computer science and healthcare and deals with the resources, devices and methods to optimize the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of information in health and biomedicine.
CSC combines deep healthcare and life sciences domain knowledge, with an unrivalled understanding of next-generation big data and analytics techniques. We’ve helped some of the world’s leading healthcare organizations leverage big data and analytics to achieve their business objectives.
Examples of our experience and domain expertise include:
- CSC helped Cytolon AG develop an innovative big data search platform to fight against cancer. CordMatch, an Internet-based donor matching system, uses big data techniques and a unique matching algorithm to compare millions of cell codes quickly to find cord blood matches from across the world for cancer patients in need of a stem cell transplant.
- We worked with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System, which protects the nation's health by monitoring disease trends, quickly identifying and tracking infectious disease outbreaks, and thwarting bioterrorism attacks.
- We are the only Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) provider with extensive expertise across the entire healthcare continuum, including payers, providers, public health, integrity and life sciences. We leverage this depth of experience to develop holistic MMIS solutions.
- Health Information Exchange: CSC’s experience includes leading the development of the New England Health EDI Network (NEHEN) and the creation of a quality data warehouse for the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative.
