    1. If we had truly robust standards for electronic data interchange and less anxiety about privacy, these kinds of data could be moved around more freely in a structured format. Of course, there are regional exchanges where they do. The data could also be created in structured format to begin with.

      This does exist. Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR; pronounced 'fire') is an open standard that describes data formats and elements (the 'resources' in the name), as well as an application programming interface (API) for exchanging electronic health records.

    1. Building a Custom Healthcare CRM System

      We are lucky to witness a transformation of healthcare approach – “patients go after hospitals” concept has been shifting to “healthcare providers follow patients”.
