“The challenge with the data is, it is all over the place; there are silos of data in every health system,” shared Steve Wretling, chief technology and innovation officer with HIMSS. Opening up the data and removing those silos, Wretling added, is the future of digital medicine.
How do we remove these silos? Through application program interfaces, often called APIs, and the organization of data behind the scenes that can then be shared with the patient.
Watch Wretling speak with HIMSS TV about the consumerization of healthcare, interoperability and data.
At HIMSS, our vision is to realize the full health potential of every human, everywhere. Be part of the community that’s transforming the global health ecosystem with courage, curiosity and determination.
