    Hello,

    The AHIMA International page gives this information:
    5% - Percentage of Health Data in relation to Global Data
    73 - Number of days it takes Global Health Data to double

    Does anyone know the source for these statistics?

    Health Data related to Global Data - Days for Global Data to double

    Thank you,
    Famey

    Hi Famey,

    Hope you are doing well!  The 73 days statistic comes from IBM's Watson Health "Get the Facts" at https://www.ibm.com/watson-health/about/get-the-facts

    What is driving the need for Cognitive technologies in health? It is Data. Medical data is expected to double every 73 days by 2020. And, each person will generate enough health data in their lifetime to fill 300 million books. Physicians simply cannot keep up with the growing amount of information available to them.

    In addition, there are growing challenges of physician shortage and physician burnout. Today, primary care physicians work on average 11.2 hours each day and 6 hours of that day is spent interacting with the Electronic Health Record. And, social determinants of health make up 70% of our health determinants. Where we live, how we eat, when we exercise, levels of stress, family support are huge factors in our overall health.

    Although they didn't cite it (that I could find), the original statistic appears to be named here:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3116346/

    Not sure about the other figure ... it may be in there somewhere, too, but I couldn't recall or find it.  Anyone else know?

    Roll Tide, BTW!  (Can't resist a shout out to another Bama alum!)  :-)
