The importance of data integration in healthcare

There are all kinds of patient data being collected in healthcare. Such data is gathered around the clock directly or indirectly, and in all care and wellness settings. Providers, vendors, and payors, in acute and post-acute settings, are collecting clinical, financial, and social data about patients that is accumulating at a very fast pace. The volume of healthcare data, including those being collected via wearable devices, are measured in the hundreds of exabytes. Such data represent a challenge as well as a treasure to technologist and to care providers if it were possible to present it meaningfully and therefore being

Is the world really on FHIR?

The use cases were few and far in between mainly due to access to the data.
