Connecting the “dark pools” of healthcare data

April 20, 2020

In a thoughtful piece in Health Affairs, Aaron Miri, CIO of Dell Medical School, and co-author Daniel O’Neill lay out the case for accelerating data infrastructure for COVID-19 surveillance and management. Their ideas include leveraging the fragmented healthcare data exchange infrastructure, notably “edge devices” to accelerate data interoperability for public health. Their recommendations also include mandating content update requirements for technology vendors which could facilitate community level data analysis and contact tracing.

Analyst Mary Meeker of the much-anticipated annual Internet Trends Report argues that healthcare’s digital transformation is set to accelerate as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. She makes the case that healthcare is just beginning to embrace modern data architecture and advanced analytics tools such as AI.

Finally, David Blumenthal and Elizabeth Fowler of the Commonwealth Fund make recommendations for Congressional action to prepare for the next pandemic.

My guest on this week’s podcast episode, Karen Kobelski, VP and General Manager of Clinical Surveillance at Wolters Kluwer Health, discusses new infection prevention rules they have developed for hospitals to provides real-time alerts to aid in monitoring coronavirus testing throughout the health system.

Contact tracing applications continue to provide us hope for checking the spread of COVID-19. We include a piece in HBR about how contact tracing has slowed the spread of COVID-19 in Asia, and another which digs into the privacy pitfalls associated with such applications.

The FCC’s $200 million telehealth funding program has already named the first recipients of grants. The Damo Consulting research team has put together an ebook with highlights of the program. You can download it here.

Stay safe.
