The application of data science has been growing within the healthcare industry via hospitals, as well as pharmaceutical and technology companies. In recent decades, healthcare delivery has progressed towards using computer assisted methods. These methods are applied through the tools of data science, which have greatly improved healthcare providers abilities in their evidence-based decision making. Data science renders a standardized and automated capability for data analysis that research has shown to be highly effective. A major application of data science is machine learning, which uses computer coding, such as Python, and algorithms to solve problems.
