How Can Healthcare Digitize and Democratize Its Data?
Data-informed healthcare is becoming more important to the global healthcare market. Where and how is the data being collected? How does data collection differ across markets? What is Health Catalyst doing to advance the vision of data-driven care?
For answers and insights into these topics and questions, Jeff Selander, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Global Expansion Business at Health Catalyst, talked with host Daniel Litwin about trends in data-informed healthcare.
Selander pointed out that, underneath all the disparate systems in healthcare, we all react to disease and aging in very similar ways.
“It’s a uniquely human problem across the world that we can join together to solve. And one way to solve it is through the democratization of data and shining a light on how we bring data together more efficiently,” Selander said, noting that solving these problems may take decades.
Currently, healthcare analytics and data are spread across multiple systems with differences in payment models, operational procedures and financing of care that vary greatly from region to region.
Solving this disparity means bringing all the relevant data together at a patient’s bedside. The U.S. leads in the digitization of patient data, but many regions still rely on paper records.
Selander sees the larger trends heading toward increased democratization and digitization of data, which will ultimately bring better, more efficient care to the global health industry.
