In a world where room for mistakes is zero, things are not standardized. We are not talking about Project Management standards here, folks! Crazy as it sounds, although it is a highly regulated industry, how data and other information is shared and flows across the healthcare ecosystem is not standardized. The various stakeholders such as hospitals, physicians, pharmacies, insurance carriers, etc. along with various technology providers have not been able to figure out how to effectively share data. Try it out for yourself by heading to your nearest Urgent Care where they won’t even know what you are allergic to, or even what your blood type is – all information that is readily available from your primary physician.
