Why American medicine still runs on fax machines.
THERE’S quite a paradox when it comes to our health data. Most of us still cannot readily look at it, but there’s been an epidemic of cybercriminals and thieves hacking and stealing this most personal information.
Aledade’s software addresses that by collecting patient data from a variety of sources, creating a helicopter view. Doctors can see which specialists a patient has visited, which tests have been ordered, and, crucially, how much the overall care might be costing the health care system.
In the Information Age, technology is revolutionizing all aspects of society including business, shopping, finance, and entertainment. But health care is the last remaining outpost.
The epicenter of today's revolution in health care, however, is the collection and review of massive pools of complex patient data (also known as "big data") that allow for more precise, individualized treatment strategies.
Giving physicians more say in how to incorporate technology into their work is good for patients, and the field.
Big data has the potential to revolutionize healthcare, promising better patient outcomes and lower costs.
As medical records are digitized and information technology becomes more sophisticated, physicians and hospitals face a rapid transformation in the way they treat patients and track diseases.
Health-care players are finding that crunching the numbers can pay off in both better care and lower costs.

Readership grew slowly, which surprises me to this day, and I had no sponsors. While I can’t afford to make HIStalk a full-time job, it provides me with much of my personal satisfaction, so I contribute a lot of time and energy toward making it as interesting and useful as I can.
