Sample text

The so-called Big players and Big Tech companies are developing a multitude of mobile platforms which rely upon health or well-being data11. In the United States, the number of partnerships between Apple and American hospitals focused upon this type of data platform does not stop multiplying across the territory. Value creation in the spread and provision of digital interfaces and the flows through these operators will both promote and ensure that further fruit is borne from the “data” within the digital health ecosystem.

That is to say that each process develops its own baseline that participates in the overall system without ever entirely understanding the latter. This is a continuous and constant learning process which never stops that creates an imperfect but useful knowledge, a little like the human brain. An algorithm which is constructed during an inductive approach may be designed according to a certain purpose; which is to say its “products”. For example, the graphs achieved by this algorithm based on analyzed data have a practical application.

Moreover, Big Data improves danger or risk recognition and, if possible, prevents it. Thus, beyond the concept of forward-looking, the objectiveis to define what the risk is or what represents a potential danger, so as to apply in real-time both a clinical scheme and modified behavior. We can cite the example of the American actress Angelina Jolie who successively in May 2013 underwent a double mastectomy, then in March 2015 ovary and fallopian tube removal, having learned, after genome sequencing, that she was carrying a mutation in the gene BRCA1, leading to a risk of greater than 90% of developing a cancer in the following ten years.
