From Big Data to Myhealth

Data analytics as a tool for human-driven well-being

In recent years there has been much talk about the opportunities offered by big data and artificial intelligence. This is also the case in healthcare, where large amounts of information are collected and stored every day. However, we are only taking the first steps in the smart use of this mass of data.

This publication evaluates how well we currently use data on health and well-being, presenting the experiences and teachings of the Health Analytics Programme (HEAP) pilot project and using practical examples of cases to illustrate how data is already being used in new forms of healthcare services. The HEAP project was a co-operation between Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK), the Pori unit of Tampere University of Technology (TTY) and the eMed laboratory of the Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech).
