Healthcare analytics is a developing field with a focus on building cross-linkages between the databases available across the public domain, government databases, large survey databases. The high computational power has enabled the use of non-linear modelling for healthcare data analytics to establish multisectoral linkages for understanding systems-level factors affecting the implementation of public healthcare programs. The policymakers, public health leaders are presented with the analysis using AI/ML techniques, it becomes imperative to understand the methodology, interpret the statistical findings for decision making. Traditionally healthcare research was confined to linear analysis techniques with the assumption of data being uniformly distributed. The cross-sectoral and multisectoral linkages to healthcare necessitate overviewing healthcare issues with broader scope and optimizing the healthcare delivery through evidence back findings.
