Health Data Myths and Reality – Healthcare IT Today Podcast Episode 24

For the 24th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, and we’re talking about the health data myths and realities.

The collection of health data is happening everywhere. Many organizations are realizing how much value is stored in health data and they’re treating it as an asset for their organization. What does this mean for healthcare? Also, what data really matters and how can healthcare better leverage the data that’s available? In this episode, we share our insights and perspectives on these important health data topics and more.

Here’s a quick rundown of the ideas and questions we’ll discuss in this episode:
