Big Data and Data Analytics

Data is at the forefront of decision making, however traditional data management processes are struggling to cope with the emergence of big data. New sources of information, the variety of data available and the speed with which it is created has changed the very landscape of data management.

Case Studies

National Health Service (NHS) Calculating Quality Reporting Service

General Dynamics IT is supporting the UK Department of Health to develop the new Calculating Quality Reporting Service (CQRS) solution for calculating healthcare quality measures and performance-based payments for General Practitioners (GPs). The CQRS implementation will bring the NHS to the forefront in pay-for-performance practices and will provide the NHS with a more flexible solution that calculates GP achievements and payments.

Chronic Condition Data Warehouse (CCW)

General Dynamics IT supports the Chronic Condition Data Warehouse (CCW), the national Medicare and Medicaid research database. The CCW contains more than 11 years of data on beneficiary enrollment, administrative claims, prescription drug events and assessments as well as other types of related data. These longitudinal data are linked, by beneficiary, across the continuum of care, making Medicare and Medicaid data more readily available and easier to use. The CCW provides a comprehensive data source for Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) and a variety of studies, including those examining small populations and relatively rare events.
