The Health Data Consortium Mission
The Health Data Consortium is a public-private partnership working to foster the availability and innovative use of open health data to improve health and healthcare.
Our mission is to liberate health data to ignite innovation; promote collaboration among health data users and stakeholders; encourage responsible health data use; and hasten the movement through advocacy, education, and targeted "catalyst" programs.
Every movement has groundbreaking moments. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once stated: “If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” Over the last several weeks, we have witnessed some bold moves that quickly took a crawl to a run as our country continues to transform its healthcare payment and delivery systems.
With the 114th Congress entering its third week in session it is shaping up to be a busy 2015. HDC Policy Outlook As an organization, as Chris mentioned in his last post, HDC has elected to focus our policy efforts on two key policy priorities this year—specifically “Data Accessibility” and “Patient Privacy.” We are currently working on developing a health data policy framework and will be drilling down further into these two important topics at our first annual Policy Retreat in February. While this will be a closed event this time, please feel free to contact me regarding any questions concerning the output of the Policy Retreat.
In the monumental task to improve healthcare, the health data community frequently looks to the innovators and developers community to come up with solutions by leveraging publically released health data. This blog post, written by New York State's acting Commissioner of Health, Dr. Howard A. Zucker, describes the winners of the recently NYS Health Innovation Challenge.
