ICD-10 Monitor: Talk Ten Tuesday – Big Data
ICD-10 Monitor’s Talk Ten Tuesday interviews this week included Maria Bounos, RN, CPC-H, who discussed “big data,” one of the latest hot topics in the health care information technology industry. The phrase “big data” often refers to a large volume of information that is waiting to be analyzed, providing an opportunity to uncover hidden patterns or correlations.
