To find patients at highest risk, hospitals combine consumer data with clinical information
from Dark Daily
Big data is all the rage in healthcare these days.

For example, if the post-surgical heart patient buys a package of cigarettes, some hospitals say they want to know. This is a trend with interesting implications for clinical laboratories.
