Summary/Abstract: Introduction: The constantly spreading digitalization facilitates activities in research, development, deployment and usage of new technologies and services in healthcare sector. The deployment of new technologies is supported by proper frameworks, models and architectures. The flexible system architectures for healthcare applications and services are the needed base in implementation of the advanced information technologies. Methods: To bring a business value in building of flexible system architectures the appropriate artifacts should be developed. This development is preceded by research of existing challenges and gaps related to healthcare. By using quantitative and qualitative research methods the interest is focused to Big Data and analytics area oriented to modern technologies and services. Results: The first findings of our researched system architecture are based on the five main components starting from data collection up to outcomes, such as visualization and statistics, and significantly important security access to healthcare data. The research about Big Data and analytics is focused on healthcare data in ophthalmology, such as diabetic retinopathy, blindness, and 3D unstructured data in planning of stereotactic radiosurgery. Conclusion: The conceptual look on the trends in healthcare digitalization should bring the right directions in the following research and proposals of flexible system architectures tuned for healthcare, which include the modern technologies, applications and services. The outcomes of Big Data and analytics should contribute in higher quality of life and bring business value in healthcare sector.
