re: Report: Get Patient Data Out Of Silos
While itGÇÖs easy to see the benefit from sharing data between insurance companies, I see too many hurdles in the way of this currently. With increasing pressure to meet Meaningful Use and other new implementations, itGÇÖs going to be hard to allocate resources to building the technology needed to make the shift into shared databases and centralized data stores. Without legislation or some sort of incentive, I believe itGÇÖs unlikely that this sharing of data will occur naturally anytime soon, although I welcome it.
