The Veterans Affairs's Corporate Data Warehouse: uses and implications for nursing research and practice.
This article described the developments in research associated with the VHA's transition into the world of Big Data analytics through Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW) utilization. The authors found that the most commonly-occurring research topics are pharmacy/medications, systems issues, and weight management/obesity. They concluded that, despite the potential benefit of data mining techniques to improve patient care and services, the CDW and alternative analytical approaches are underutilized by researchers and clinicians.
