Abstract -
Data Analysis is very important in each and every field particularly for the assessment of performance. This research paper throws light on the importance of data analysis in the field of health care. Investigation has been performed on the various aspects of data analysis and its fruitfulness for improving the health care services. This research paper can serve as a reference for budding researchers and health care personnel to analyse the importance of data analysis for making the health care sector more efficient and effective.
