I am so thankful to the HIMSS and BHTY teams for the opportunity to co-author this peer-reviewed article: Blockchain, Interoperability, and Self-Sovereign Identity: Trust Me, It’s My Data. I am passionate about leveraging healthcare information technology to improve care delivery and to satisfy the tenets of the Quadruple Aim. The answer to influencing the change in care delivery and to promote interoperability is in the data….”The current interoperability processes for data exchange result in fragmentation and lack of aggregation, impacting patient identity, consent management, and access management across stakeholders. Patients lack the ability to administer and transfer consent in managing their own data.” Yes, problems exist, however, let’s consider these problems OPPORTUNITIES. Let’s come together and think outside the box by possibly incorporating cross-industry processes and protocols to develop solutions. Looking forward to possibilities!
