Access to data is important in any industry. In healthcare, it can save lives. HIT Consultant brought this news to us in their article, “How Faster Data Access Can Save Lives.”

When you’re waiting for an answer to cure or prevent a disease, the difference in days to weeks to months can feel like forever. Scientists and doctors need high-quality, robust data to inform their research and provide care to patients. Immediate access to crucial data can mean more accurate and potentially lifesaving healthcare diagnoses or procedures. 

Giving patients access to their medical data offers an advantageous realignment of the doctor-patient dynamic. But with the benefits come complications, and progress towards digital health goals vary wildly. What are the obstacles still lying in the way of democratizing healthcare data, and how can these goals be best pursued in the interest of patient care and sustainable health systems?

Making data accessible is something we know a little about. Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
