Follow the Protected Health Information (PHI)

More importantly, companies of the Healthcare and Life Sciences (HCLS) ecosystem must come together to support this robust platform that enables digital transformation to achieve these goals via digital core, digital edge, and digital exchange – the three main tenets of digital transformation.

Protected Health Information (PHI) can unlock a universe of new pharmaceuticals to treat communicable diseases, develop targeted & customized treatment modalities and uncover the causes of a myriad of genetic disorders and chronic diseases. This all, however, requires this PHI to be readily shared and made available to the right counterparties for medical research, all while this PHI data is locked away in disparate EHRs and PACS systems across 10,000+ hospitals and hospital systems in the US alone. A platform is required that can support near-cloud storage for long-term aggregation of PHI data, private interconnection to relevant counterparties, and near-cloud compute for AI/ML techniques used in medical research. More importantly, companies of the Healthcare and Life Sciences (HCLS) ecosystem must come together to support this robust platform that enables digital transformation to achieve these goals via digital core, digital edge, and digital exchange – the three main tenets of digital transformation.

Key takeaways: Digital Core – where should clinical workloads live? EHRs, PACS, LIS, RIS, AI/ML compute farms, optimal geographic locations, regional carrier/NSP hubs, etc. Digital Edge – how can patients, researchers and physicians access these clinical services? Telehealth, de-centralized clinical trials, home health, emergent and ambulatory care facilities, etc. Digital Exchange – what are the best methods to facilitate the painless processing and sharing of PHI?
