Q&A with

What is the most pressing challenge facing data exchange? How is Health IT related to that challenge?

Patient-generated mobile health data is a nascent and rapidly growing market. Healthcare innovators, including the world’s largest consumer electronics companies, are leveraging exponential increases in hardware capabilities to yield new data types and measurements that have never been available to the provision of care. The most pressing challenge facing data exchange is building an infrastructure that can transmit, accept, and utilize these dynamic, disparate data sets, while maintaining context and reliability.

What does Validic do to impact or help this challenge?

Validic connects patient-generated data from digital health apps, wearables, and in-home medical devices to the healthcare system. Validic provides one simple connection point that standardizes and normalizes the data, enabling the client’s platform to remain flexible to deliver all information relevant for patient care. Without Validic, healthcare companies must choose which devices or platforms to support given limited resources. With Validic, healthcare companies can remain device- and platform-agnostic, receiving patient-permissioned data from any device, application or platform the patient chooses to use.

Q&A with

What is the most pressing challenge facing data exchange? How is Health IT related to that challenge?

The greatest challenge facing data exchange today is ensuring a consistent standards-based implementation that allows organizations to share and be interoperable. The standards are evolving. That means we need to work to adopt the latest standards while also ensuring backward compatibility until everyone catches up.

What does AEGIS.net, Inc. do to impact or help this challenge?

AEGIS offers the Developers Integration Lab (DIL), an automated, open source, cloud-based, always available, Testing as a Service (TaaS) solution for health information exchange standards conformance and interoperability testing.
