Federal Health data and technology

​You’re already drinking from a data fire hose, but the valve is going to open a lot wider in the near future.

Not only more data capabilities, but different ones. So your agency can make new kinds of decisions, not just different versions of the ones you’ve been making for years. Are you ready?

Blockchain: Opportunities for health care

Blockchain technology has the potential to transform health care, placing the patient at the center of the health care ecosystem and increasing the security, privacy, and interoperability of health data. This technology could provide a new model for health information exchanges (HIE) by making electronic medical records more efficient, disintermediated, and secure. While it is not a panacea, this new, rapidly evolving field provides fertile ground for experimentation, investment, and proof-of-concept testing.​

Health IT and the federal future

The US federal government has significant health obligations to current and former military personnel, and complex health and human services commitments to the civilian public. It is both a gatekeeper and a catalyst in the development of new drugs and therapies. And as the practice and business of medicine continue to evolve, government is at the center of global change. A common element in these challenges is information technology (IT).
