This book contains a health insurance model that aims to provide affordable premiums for low-income populations in countries with different levels of development and economy. In many situations, low-income people work, barely able to rise from poverty and become sick accidently. Despite all their efforts, all the investments they have suffered to acquire are spent to cover medical treatments. When reviewing why health insurance does not cover those with a low income, the high level of premiums is ranked as the main reason. The economy of scale boosts businesses constructed with lower prices to obtain many clients. In business, a low price is far from enough. The quality of a product or service is equally, or even more, important. Quality in health insurance means many things, but an essential parameter is the benefits package of the healthcare services covered. The idea of the model is to say, ´´Let us focus on a limited number of expensive healthcare services, as the prevalence is usually low and cost sharing should work.´´ The proposed attractive benefits include major surgeries, complicated birth deliveries, and cancer treatment. The services include medical consultations, diagnostic exams, and drugs. To make the model more attractive and sustainable, the quality and efficiency of healthcare services and the efficiency of the health insurance administration were added. The model is proposed as a profitable social business that aims to attract investments for the reduction or prevention of the impoverishment of low-income populations due to expensive healthcare services.

Big Data in medical science - what exactly is that? What are the potentials for healthcare management? Where is Big Data at the moment? Which risk factors need to be kept in mind? What is hype and what is real potential? This book provides an impression of the new possibilities of networked data analysis and ´´Big Data´´ - for and within medical science and healthcare management.Big Data is about the collection, storage, search, distribution, statistical analysis and visualization of large amounts of data. This is especially relevant in healthcare management, as the amount of digital information is growing exponentially. An amount of data corresponding to 12 million novels emerges during the time of a single hospital stay. These are dimensions that cannot be dealt with without IT technologies. What can we do with the data that are available today? What will be possible in the next few years? Do we want everything that is possible? Who protects the data from wrong usage? More importantly, who protects the data from NOT being used?Big Data is the ´´resource of the 21st century´´ and might change the world of medical science more than we understand, realize and want at the moment. The core competence of Big Data will be the complete and correct collection, evaluation and interpretation of data. This also makes it possible to estimate the frame conditions and possibilities of the automation of daily (medical) routine. Can Big Data in medical science help to better understand fundamental problems of health and illness, and draw consequences accordingly?Big Data also means the overcoming of sector borders in healthcare management. The specialty of Big Data analysis will be the new quality of the outcomes of the combination of data that were not related before. That is why the editor of the book gives a voice to 30 experts, working in a variety of fields, such as in hospitals, in health insurance or as medical practitioners. The authors show potentials, risks, concrete practical examples, future scenarios, and come up with possible answers for the field of information technology and data privacy.
