Andy Oram has written a thorough write-up of the 2012 Health Privacy Summit at O'Reilly Radar. "We can fix our health care systems if we educate doctors and patients to work together; create teams that have incentives to deliver the best care; open up data about the health care industry; incorporate low-cost devices into patient-centered medical homes, and incorporate the best research into clinical decision support. I'm sure readers could suggest other related elements of a solution. A crucial background role will be played by technological improvements and standards." Readers interested in healthcare IT will also want to follow the links to Oram's recaps of the co-located Patient Access Summit and Health Data Initiative forum.
