EMRs alone collect huge amounts of data. Most of that data is collected for recreational purposes” according to Brent James of Intermountain Healthcare. Further Paul S. Bradley shares his views on use of big data in present. He says “Clinical data sources can commonly be extracted from electronic health records, hemodynamic systems, medication administration records, laboratory and information systems, and other various sources. These data elements include patient demographics and visit (account) level information including progress notes, problems, medication, and vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, and laboratory data.”[1]Thus in this way, big data comes into play in healthcare benefitting the system.

This data varies from the basic billing data to new digital data. As Jared Crapo says that “Discretely codified billing and clinical transactions are well suited for relational data models.
