The global healthcare analytics market will continue to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.7% through 2017 according to a report from MarketsandMarkets. Additionally, IDC Health Insights recently published Business Strategy: Analytics Leads Accountable Care Investment Priority, which was based on the results of two IDC surveys. The report  identified that over 50% of the respondents (hospitals and insurers) stated their highest investment priority was advanced analytics. By leveraging analytics we have the potential to dramatically reduce the death rates from predictable and, in many cases, preventable non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
