Published by Open Data Institute

Friday Lunchtime Lectures at the Open Data Institute. For our second lecture... Big Data Comes to the NHS The NHS has been challenged to make £20 billion in efficiency savings by 2015. £10 billion a year are spent by the NHS on essential drugs. Often, there’s a choice between a cheap generic medication, or an expensive branded one, so reducing prescribing variation is a priority as a painless way to save money. Big Data specialists, Francine Bennett and Bruce Durling from Mastodon C took us on a journey through their work on Prescribing Analytics and showed how they identified £200m potential savings using 40 million rows of open data from the NHS.
