In accordance with prescribing-information recommendations, paliperidone palpitate was changed from a monthly dose to a three-monthly dose in the treatment of veterans with schizophrenia. This study describes and compares treatment patterns, resource usage, and expenditures before and after the transition. Utilizing information from the Veterans Health Administration's electronic health records, this retrospective, longitudinal study VHA. Veterans were included if they were 18 years of age or older, had received one prescription for PP3M, had been enrolled in VHA benefits for 24 months prior to switching to PP3M, had been diagnosed with schizophrenia once, and had been switched to PP3M in accordance with prescribing-information guidelines. Operationalized as no 45-day break in PP1M treatment over the four months before PP3M.

Delivering high-quality healthcare in low- and middle-income nations is severely hampered by inadequate healthcare provider performance. The Health Care Provider Performance Review is a thorough, systematic examination of methods for enhancing the performance of healthcare providers in LMICs [1]. In order to conduct this systematic review, we looked through 58 document inventories for unpublished studies from the 1960s to 2016 as well as electronic databases for published studies [2]. Controlled trials and interrupted time series are acceptable study strategies. Only comparisons between strategy and the control group were included [3]. We demonstrate outcomes for bettering the performance of healthcare providers, expressed as percentages [5]. In terms of absolute percentage-point changes, effect sizes were computed. The median effect size served as the summary metric for each comparison. Big Data is a popular idea across many industries. The aim of this paper was to provide a concise summary of the characteristics, uses, methods of analysis, and difficulties associated with big data in healthcare [6]. Big Data in the healthcare industry has its unique characteristics, including heterogeneity, incompleteness, longevity and timeliness, privacy, and ownership [7]. The storage, processing, and sharing of data to advance health-related research is made more difficult by these aspects [8]. Big Data in healthcare analytical methodologies must be created to address these issues, and legislation governing the use of big data in healthcare must be passed. Application of Big Data analysis could result in better care and lower expenses from the patient's point of view [9]. The Internet, mobile devices, the Internet of Things, social media, biology, finance, and digital medicine have all seen a sharp growth in the amount of data available to researchers, hospitals, and the government, in addition to patients [10]. Big Data refers to both the bulk of the data, as the name suggests, as well as the ability to handle the data quickly and using unique technology and methods. Big Data underwent a series of evolutionary steps after entering the twenty-first century, and software in a suitable environment has been developed. Big Data has grown to a certain extent in terms of both its size and data technology with the expansion of information exchanges. Correlation analysis, clustering analysis, modelling, prediction, and hypothesis testing all need the use of technology and apparatus [11].


Therefore, for data capture, extraction, processing, analysis, and storage, modern hardware and software are needed. At the moment, the Big Data infrastructure consists of servers, storage systems, cloud services, and networking hardware. Software for big data comprises retrieval tools, distributed and parallel file systems, and data mining software. Big Data has applications in many fields, including crime prevention, business execution, finance, the Global Positioning System, commerce, travel, urban informatics, meteorology, genomics, complex physics simulations, biology, environmental research, and health care, thanks to the advanced analytical technologies that have been developed for it. One of the driving forces behind Big Data is health care data. An exponential increase in data generation is possible thanks to modern technology. Large amounts of different sorts of data, such as clinical data and medical imaging, are created by hospitals and used in medicine and clinics [12]. It frequently has a strong connection to both patients and doctors. To put it another way, big data in medicine is produced from previous clinical actions and has a big impact on the medical sector. For instance, it can help with clinical decision support processing and arranging patient treatment pathways [13]. Big Data in the medical field originates from patient information, hospital information resources, surgeons' work, anaesthetic activities, physical tests, radiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography, and imaging report [14]. The first month after delivery continues to be the most perilous time of life, despite attempts to increase access to and the calibre of care for new-borns. Saving infant lives is a top goal for international and national health policy agendas due to the high neonatal mortality in low-income nations. Little is known, though, about how these policies align with regional perceptions, life experiences, and household priorities. In this qualitative study, we looked at how families in Butajira, Ethiopia, made decisions and sought out healthcare. Data were gathered through hospital observation, in-depth interviews with family members, medical professionals, and community people. Using qualitative content analysis, transcripts and field notes underwent inductive analysis. Findings show that the family's top focus was not necessarily the health of the newborn. Observations that infants are not yet useful community members receiving medical attention could be detrimental to the family's ability to make ends meet. In an environment with limited resources, families concentrated on productive assets to reduce long-term hazards and deferred seeking neonatal health-care services. The unidentified newborn was not yet regarded by the community as a social being until after it had survived the first delicate weeks and months of life. The infant developed gradually into a person as he or she joined the family. A newborn's death was met with silence, and conventional financial organisations, or iddirs, offered families little assistance. Families' perceptions of babies and their resource-constrained circumstances had a bearing on the decisions they made about their health care. Recognizing the reasons behind families' decisions to seek medical attention as well as their actual options and limitations is necessary to improve neonatal health. A family's concerns for the survival of the family intersected with culturally and structurally established understandings of the fragile infant when making decisions about health care. Together, these elements reinforced an unclear perspective on the sick newborn, which in turn had an impact on how people sought medical attention. We describe how this affected decision-making, for families that experienced neonatal illness and loss, and in terms of community expectations for the management of babies in the section that follows. The vulnerability and immediate need for treatment for unwell babies were underlined when we first met at the hospital. These parents were ready to go far for medical care, even to Addis Abeba, as they frequently resided in urban regions and had more money available. Parents, according to participants, Whereas mothers of the newborns admitted at the hospital were very concerned about, and wished to give priority to their sick newborn, other family members, and fathers in particular, could be hesitant to seek health-care, due to the high costs. Although the mother was the primary caretaker for the newborn and often the one recognizing that the newborn was ill, she was rarely the primary decision maker within the family. As the main provider for the family, the husband commonly had the final word in decision making. In the period after birth he was often out of the house, or the wife was at her parents' house. Most mothers could not leave the house without the husband giving his blessing or money to seek care. This process complicated the decision making process, and delayed health-care-seeking even when the baby was identified as in need of treatment as identified as in need of treatment. This finding of differing views within the household was confirmed by health workers. They described conflicting concerns when making decisions about going to the health center or hospital. Treatment could be expensive and staying in the hospital was uncomfortable, unfamiliar, and frightening. While delivery care was provided for free only for the mother, families had to pay for care for the neonate. The fear of high costs for services included drugs, admission, equipment, transportation and other formal payments, which made families reluctant to seek health-care. One husband explained: The money is needed for the treatment.


The other expenses are to take the child to the main road by a cart and transportation to the health center as people become more aware of the value of data, more and more data-mining techniques are being used to extract information from massive amounts of data. An environment that is data-rich produces a tremendous amount of data each day in the fields of medicine and health care. Therefore, in order to examine huge health care data, we must employ data-mining techniques including classification, clustering, regression analysis, and association rules. One of the more recent schools of manufacturing philosophy, lean thinking was initially created in the industrial setting of the automobile industry. More recently, it has been used in the service sector and in healthcare, which can greatly benefit from the adoption of Lean, which is frequently referred to as a "systems engineering" approach to healthcare. The majority of families were unable to pay for care right away and had to delay going to the hospital while they waited for money. To pay for user fees at the hospital, it was usual practise to borrow from friends and family, and many of them were compelled to work longer hours or sell their possessions in order to repay the debt. One medical professional explained how a father could weigh the benefits for the family against the price and strain of therapy by considering "what if the baby doesn't survive?" Lack of access to healthcare for sick newborns in poor families with no means of payment could have serious and even fatal consequences.
