Over the last few years, connecting health data is evolving from innovation to standard practice. Pharmaceutical companies, health systems, government, payers, and analytics platforms connect data, creating a robust picture of patient health, to accelerate research, improve care, and lower healthcare costs. Examples of the types of analyses that benefit from connected health data include questions like:
1. How can I find patients with fatty liver disease for a clinical trial?
2. Is this new migraine therapy cost-effective?
3. What factors are preventing patients from coming into the clinic for follow-up care?
4. What are the risk factors contributing to this patient’s high healthcare costs?
