Session II

The "Informatics Pause"

Kevin Nortrup, CPHIMS, CSEP

Many in healthcare lament that only a small portion of presently available healthcare data is being utilized. Such concerns can only increase as Big Data, Healthcare Internet Of Things, Body-Area Networks and similar trends stockpile data even faster. Concurrent with this supply-side tsunami of healthcare data, there’s also demand-side desperation for critical healthcare decisions. However, is it enough just to build the pipelines between the two sides and then to open the valves?
