ENTRIES TAGGED "health internet"
The push for health data interoperability won't work unless the approach is modernized.
New Internet-centric approaches to health IT systems are needed, and the government should be mandating a more modern open style of data exchange that breaks through monolithic systems.
This is an opportunity to rethink how health data flows.
In this digital world, health data that's 36-hours old can only be analyzed as a post-mortem. Health data that's 30-days old is already rotting.
The Direct Project is poised to become the first health Internet platform.
Given the way that healthcare is financed in the U.S., it's reasonable to expect that many doctors will have a Direct email address to communicate with other doctors and their patients in a few years.
