Amount of healthcare data generated annually
A zettabyte is a trillion gigabytes (also expressed as 1021 or
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes). This is how much data the healthcare
industry is accumulating every year. And it’s expected to double every two years.
While this holds much promise for patients of all types, it’s also a significant
challenge for healthcare IT professionals to analyze and make actionable.
