Health analytics (HA) is used in healthcare systems for effective decision making, management and planning of healthcare and related activities. However, user resistances, unique position of medical data content and structure (including heterogeneous and unstructured data) and impromptu HA projects have held up the progress in HA applications. Notably, the accuracy of outcomes depends on the skills and the domain knowledge of the data analyst working on the healthcare data. Success of HA…

Methodologies for designing healthcare analytics solutions: A literature analysis
Analysis identified that various methodologies have been used for developing analytics solutions, such as prototyping, traditional software engineering, agile approaches and others, but despite its clear advantages, few show the use of design science.
Designing a Process Model for Health Analytic Projects
The health analytic (HA) process model presented in this paper is developed to conduct HA projects in an orderly manner instead of approaching them in an ad-hoc manner and will assist novice users in learning the best practices to analytics very easily.
Unified Structured Framework for mHealth Analytics: Building an Open and Collaborative Community
This study proposes a Unified Structured Framework for mHealth Analytics (USF-mHA) as an open process model that can be adopted in mHealth apps and provides a standardised guideline for m health developers to integrate analytics components with open standards for various stakeholders.
