The End of EHR Data Connection Fees

2017-06-11T17:36:53+00:00

The basis of healthcare data has not changed. Patient histories still set the stage. The exam still details how the patient looks, feels, and sounds. Vital signs are still gathered in similar ways.

HL7, CDA, FHIR, CDISC, CDASH. The word jumble surfaces when researchers attempt to integrate clinical data with trial data. It also illustrates a trend where technologists, not clinicians, have control of patents' information.
