A Million Trials in 5 Minutes: How Monte Carlo Simulations Could Revolutionize Healthcare

By David Friend and Joshua Lefcowitz

When it comes to using data to personalize medicine, Google and a UK hospital group's partnership to build a personalized healthcare app – using 1.6 million health records – is really just the tip of the iceberg.
Big data analytics in healthcare presents endless possibilities.

Using multi-variate statistical analysis and appropriate modeling, healthcare organizations can go beyond binary analysis to show all the possible outcomes of clinical treatment, insurance premium pricing, business valuations and even personalized medicine in near-real time.
