Big Data analysis
-Module 6 Discussion
-Module 7 Assignment
After reviewing this Module’s Lesson content, choose 1 specific nursing practice topic that can benefit from big data analysis (can use one from the article or come up with one of your own). You are the Chief Nursing Officer at a healthcare (including insurance), public health, or educational organization. You are the only nurse on the Leadership Team alongside other hospital administrators (the Chief Financial Officer, Chief Informatics Officer, and the medical director), data analysts, and risk management. Leadership knows that a new approach to the topic is necessary, but a specific plan has not been decided on. You need to make an evidence- based proposal about how the organization should approach your topic. Remember, everyone at the table is going to have a vote on the proposal, so you need to show risks and benefits not only for nursing but for medicine, finance, and informatics as well.
Using the topic you chose, compose a plan for this topic based on what you learned from an analysis of Big Data research about this topic. Note: when searching for papers to include in this assignment make sure to search “big data” AND [topic] to find relevant papers.
