It’s all about real-time access to massive amounts of data. 


“Apache Ignite is a distributed, in-memory computing platform,” Akmal said. “In-memory computing allows these companies to evaluate a vast array of proteins and potential treatments for a specific disease much faster than their previous approaches.”


Akmal will also discuss how healthcare cost-management providers use in-memory computing to help healthcare payers manage the cost of care, improve their competitiveness and inspire positive change.


The healthcare industry provides many different challenges for the storage and analysis of massive amounts of data in real-time. This is due to the varying requirements across the industry, such as the increasing use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs), personalized medicine, new patient and provider expectations for real-time insurance systems, and drug discovery, for example.


Apache Ignite can help address many of these challenges by providing the scalability and performance to manage the ever-increasing volume and complexity of healthcare-related data.

Big data analytics in healthcare comes with many challenges, including security, visualization, and a number of data integrity concerns.
