DVHIMSS LUNCH AND LEARN: Covid-19: Making the Latest Case for Data Liquidity
The liquidity of patient data – that is, its ability to be exported to other systems as needed, then aggregated and analyzed – has grown exponentially in strategic importance. Without a complete, easily modeled picture of the patient population and their care history, senior executives, medical professionals, and Digital Health Innovators find themselves limited in their ability to analyze different possible reimbursement strategies, create appropriate treatment strategies, and access complete reporting stacks for patient care improvement and research. The current pandemic has driven a change in how we think about the ability and needs for shared data across clinical entities.
Join us for a discussion around the related challenges, including data management on cloud and on-premise environments, ensuring the veracity of parties involved in data exchange, and semantic interoperability the will become front and center in the pursuit of data liquidity.
