Abstract The healthcare industry is rapidly changing and currently there is a constant need for improvisation because of the lack of processed data. The healthcare industry in the United States has generated vast amounts of data, but these data have not been processed effectively to make improvements in the healthcare industry. In particular, there has been an increasing demand for Home Healthcare services in the United States. This study demonstrates an application of big data methodology to study home healthcare services. The analysis is performed using statistical programming, called ‘R’, that is used for analysing big data.
