For the 87th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re talking about The Business of Giving Patients Control of Their Health Data. It’s easy to say that patients should have access to their data. ONC and other legislation have made it clear that patients have a right to their data. While that’s clear, the business of giving patients control of their data has a lot more complexity. For example, do patients want to control their data? In this episode we dive into the business of patient data including the challenges faced and the business models we’ve heard about. Plus, we share some of the bright spots.

Here’s a preview of the questions and topics we discuss in this episode:

  • Why patients need/want access or control of their health data?
  • What are the challenges faced by companies and organizations in this space?
  • Business models we’ve heard about?
  • Where are the bright spots? Who is making strides?
