Using Pinterest to Improve the Big Data User Experience - A Comparative Analysis in Healthcare

Technology has improved rapidly since cloud computing and Big Data was first designed. However, research has found the user experience in the information retrieval process to be lacking. To this end, we carried out a comparative study of a single portal design versus existing data search tools to determine if it could potentially increase knowledge gathered from Big Data using healthcare to illustrate our example. Comparisons of user experiences of search results against other Big Data sources such as Google, Web MD and the CDC showed that customizing Pinterest to provide a single portal for search results lead to improvements for the users’ knowledge and experience concerning their healthcare issues.
