Every single day more than 28,000 scientific publications appear. More than 90% of all data available were generated within the last two years and by the day new data sources surface. It is obvious to search for patterns within these abundant piles of data and derive information from these. Especially in health-care, good experiences derive from this approach ever since the foundation of epidemiology. For the first time in known history of humankind, adequate computer capacities and programs are available for comprehensive data analytics. Hence, Data-Driven health-care has become an electrifying promise of future innovation through IT and a moral obligation to patient safety through data security.
