Turning data into information that can be used to make timely decisions is a challenge that organizations have been facing for many years. In today?s technology age, there is no shortage of data. Organizations have databases that store all varieties of data. The term big data is used because the amount of data systems can generate in this technology era. Decision makers must use various analytical concepts to synthesize and visualize the data. The purpose of this presentation is to propose a clinical and operational data infrastructure to support hospital administrators in making decisions. The final conclusion will suggest methods to identify inherent patterns, correlations, and anomalies which provide valuable insight for healthcare data analysts and executives.
