Treating Data as an Asset: Data Entrepreneurship in the Service of Patients
Digital health; Health data; General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); Data sharing
- The only 100% common element of digital transformation across all industries is data.
- With data and digital transformation, patients are changing: They are active, connected, informed, and savvy.
- Security, compliance, and privacy are different things.
Is there any hope of data sharing policies helping to bridge the micro and macro silos of healthcare data?
As data starts to flows through institutions, it ends up in multiple places. Part of sharing data is protecting a single source of truth.
If something is relevant to the bedside, it’s worth doing.
