ANALYZING BIG VOLUME MEDICAL DATA: CURRENT PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS
Rena T. Gasımova

Big Data is becoming a promising area in the field of healthcare. It is used to improve the results of the analysis of large volumes of data sets and to reduce the costs. Increase in data volume and demand for ad hoc analysis of data created one of the biggest problems of Big Data called Big Data analysis. The article deals with actual problems of a large analysis of data generated in the field of health, and explores the main characteristics of the data. At the same time, it defines the various opportunities, advantages and characteristics of the data in the area of health, and provides a number of recommendations (pp.63-72).

Keywords: data warehouse, big data, big data analytics, biometric data, evidence-based medicine, genomic analytics, MapReduce, Hadoop
