Healthcare is in the midst of a massive transformation. That’s according to Amar Gurivireddygari, chief data and analytics officer at Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI). Gurivireddygari says the emergence of big data – the use of analytics to drive innovation - is helping to improve lives and save people money.

A big part of that transformation in healthcare is consumerism. This concept reflects advancements in technology that allow BCBSRI members to use data to ask questions, and make informed decisions to manage their own healthcare in the same way you would compare prices and features when shopping for a car.
