I profile a bunch of companies in the new book, one of which is Cleveland healthcare Big Data start-up Explorys.

I can think of few industries that can benefit more from Big Data than healthcare. There’s far too much waste and inefficiency in sector responsible for an astonishing one-sixth of the US economy–and growing at twice the rate of inflation.

Of course, there are legitimate privacy and security concerns with making this type of information available. It’s a point that I make in the new book.

That aside for a moment, Big Data is creating what I believe are very interesting jobs. To read more about this, check out this article. I’m quoted in it.
