Aneesh Chopra, CareJourney President, recently presented a session at the HLTH 2020 Virtual Conference about the Era of Health Information Fiduciaries – how entrepreneurs and innovators can build on health IT regulations to optimize patient navigation.
Aneesh served as the Chief Technology Officer in the Obama administration, where he focused on opening up government data to make it available to the American people and to accelerate investments in electronic health records as well as research & development.
With consistent efforts across the last decade, Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid data is now available for the American people to access, to run research studies, and understand areas of high value and low value care. Additionally, research and development (R&D) investments on internet-based Interoperability standards a decade ago, specifically around SMART on FHIR are now the regulated law of the land. Starting in the next 12 months, hospital systems, physician networks, and government sponsored health plans will be obligated to open up data to consumer designated applications.
In his session, Aneesh specifically talked about how we are now entering the health information fiduciary era, and it starts with the consumer’s right to access and aggregate their health information.
