I spent the past couple days in Washington, D.C., among hundreds of healthcare data experts. These are my main takeaways from this great event. Health agencies and organizations currently face many challenges as they move to modernize, become paper-free at the point of care, and use collected data to derive key information as decision-making drivers for industry innovation. In many ways, the healthcare industry has been left in the dark ages of technology, from an infrastructural standpoint, with barriers stagnating discovery of potential solutions to global health issues.
