Great article. I will predict that the first area of "medicine" to employ the power of predictive analytics will be dentistry. How can I say this with confidence? Because my company- Efficient Dental Market Systems, LLC has just developed the first "Clinical Dental Analytics Integration Software." We have mathematical models for hard tissue damage (decay), periodontal disease, and temporomandibular dysfunction- approximately 95% of what the average dentist is concerned with during an average day. Our mission is to be the platform for analyzing data from any device that produces data as the result of examining dental structure or function. We will do this anywhere in the world that you find a dentist, patient, smart device, and connection to the Internet... in any language. The medical record will become the future of understanding health via Big Data.

Imagine the extraordinary potential for government monitoring of individuals and of abuse.

After seeing what the IRS is capable of in targeting certain groups, just imagine that potential if they had limitless access to medical and behavioral data on their "opponents".

This degree of Big Brother Big Data monitoring is a VERY BAD IDEA.
