The term Big Data is an elusive term with a definition that is not commonly agreed upon. According to a recent definition, the term would encompass any data that is around a petabyte (1015 bytes) or more in size. In health informatics research, Big Data of this size is quite rare. Nevertheless, data used for health informatics research can be considered Big Data in terms of their richness of clinical information and complex structure and may represent an important source of information relevant to the clinical decision-making in real-world patient settings.

Abstract

The term Big Data is an elusive term with a definition that is not commonly agreed upon. According to a recent definition, the term would encompass any data that is around a petabyte (1015 bytes) or more in size. In health informatics research, Big Data of this size is quite rare. Nevertheless, data used for health informatics research can be considered Big Data in terms of their richness of clinical information and complex structure and may represent an important source of information relevant to the clinical decision-making in real-world patient settings.
