The Health Data Integration Landscape: Challenges and Opportunities
Alice just had an MRI and asks her doctor for a copy of her record. What does she get from the doctors office? Bob visits a specialist for a second opinion. Does he really need to undergo that costly procedure again? Sam has been using a wearable. How can she share that data with her nutritionist? Join us for a discussion on Health Data Integration in the enterprise and beyond.
What initiatives are we seeing from the public and private sectors to increase data integration throughout the healthcare ecosystem. We’ll review a number of technologies like HL7’s proposed FHIR standard, OHDSI’s Common Data Model, Vanderbilt University’s Redcap, one of Alexander’s own integration projects and position papers like the ONC HIT’s 10 year vision plan.
Alexander Sicular has practiced medical informatics for more than 16 years, most recently as Director of Medical Informatics at Columbia University’s Departments of Neurology and Obstetrics and Gynecology. Working together with clinicians, researcher and hospital administrators, Alexander has worked to implement systems that integrate clinical data from different databases and data models to improve operational efficiency, reduce the burden of regulatory compliance, enhance data quality and increase research opportunities.
