Due to rapid growth of digitization process, big data size is increasing day by day. In healthcare system, electronic patient data is maintained in hospitals for years of years. As medical data contain patient information, its size and sensitivity increases. These medical data can be accessed after long time as per need of the patient, and therefore the data must be secure for long time as well as can be accessed with ease and speed. In this paper, we have discussed some of the challenges due to rapid growth of digital data and have tried to give solution for it. Further we have given a mechanism to distinguish between useful and waste data.
