This paper gives a brief review of how emerging database technologies can be used to provide additional value from available health information such as electronic patient records. It is not only about the integration of technologies for data warehousing, OLAP analysis and data mining; but also the integration of data from various sources and how to share and connect the resources. The organisational structure of healthcare in the UK is illustrated before the Solent Health Informatics Partnership (SHIP) is introduced, highlighting the proposed conceptual architecture for data analytics in this context. The applicability of NoSQL and Big Data technologies is considered with an emphasis on data warehousing and mining approaches.
