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.

Lee Rucker previews and reviews some of these efforts by big box retailers and pharmacies, originally discussed in the session, “The Role of Retailers in the U.S. Healthcare System,” at Health Datapalooza 2014.
