    INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:

    [00:51] The Healthcare Industry is in the midst of its digital transformation, with many Enterprise Health care companies moving their mission-critical applications to the Cloud. As you know, Healthcare is one of the most regulated industries in the United States. How do health care organizations that leverage Cloud stay up to date with compliance?

    [01:40] Healthcare organizations need the following 3 things for good compliance: (1) good security (2) good governance (3) good monitoring.

    [02:22] How do you define good governance in healthcare?

    [04:54] The cybersecurity industry is currently experiencing a shortage of about 3.5 million people. We’re also constantly hearing about hospitals and healthcare facilities being shut down by hacks and ransomware attacks. Wouldn’t the cloud make health care providers more vulnerable? How can health care organizations stay up to date with Cybersecurity?

    [07:39] Many healthcare organizations are having difficulty finding the right security skills.

    [08:12] Healthcare organizations might actually become more secure by going to the cloud.

    INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:
    [00:49] We’re currently in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic where health care providers and payers are experiencing an exponential increase in their workload. The ramifications of this increase would be a proportionate exponential increase in the amount of data that will be generated. How are insurance companies digitizing the billions of new health records in order to convert them into useful data?

    [01:16] The challenge we’re having is that data is being generated as images, which then needs to be converted to text, and from there to useful information.

    [01:41] How much data is created in healthcare today?

    [02:12] How has COVID-19 impacted the volume of healthcare data that’s generated?

    [02:25] How do you handle this incoming influx of information?

    [03:06] What is the challenge the World Health Organization is having regarding our medical data?

    [03:12] The major challenge with our medical data is that you can only read so much data, so fast.

    [03:43] How can Health Insurance companies leverage AI and analytics to help fight Covid-19 related insurance fraud?

    [04:59] SyTrue recently launched a new offering on the Microsoft Azure marketplace, called SyHealth. Tell us about it and how it addresses some of the challenges we just discussed.

    INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:

    [00:46] Healthcare is starting to see major transformations with industry leaders increasingly embracing technologies such as cloud and Artificial Intelligence. What are some of the key data and infrastructure challenges that healthcare providers and payers deal with when starting out on their journey to innovate on the cloud?

    [03:38] The new Healthcare AI will predict who will get sick and how to prevent it.

    [04:47] In response to the rapidly growing amounts of electronic healthcare data, there is a new data standard to help simplify the management of health data called FHIR, which stands for Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources. Microsoft recently launched an ‘Azure API for FHIR’, what is it and how does it support healthcare innovation?

    [07:20] Adopting standards for data will unlock the ability for doctors to compare your symptoms with many other people like you, over time, so that they can predict the future of your health and give you an opportunity to act upon it.

    [08:00] Leveraging the Azure API for FHIR, KenSci recently launched a new managed service offering targeting healthcare organizations – SMART on FHIR based data & AI accelerator. Can you share some information on how this AI accelerator will help simplify the transition of data to the cloud for healthcare organizations?

    [08:49] Transforming data to a standard format is an ongoing process. It’s not a one-time job.

    [11:12] What are some of the key features that this offering will provide customers with?

    [12:24] An advantage to having your data in a standardized format is the ease of applying business intelligence analytics to your data.

    [14:45] Healthcare is the most regulated industry in the United States, and security and compliance around data privacy is a really big deal. Can you share some information on how Microsoft and KenSci together address concerns around security and data privacy with the FHIR offering?

    [15:14] Healthcare data is our most precious data.

    [15:20] In Healthcare, data privacy, data security, and data governance need to be established in the beginning. It’s not a post-facto thought process.

    [17:23] How do people access and get started with this offering?

    Sunny: You can access it via this link: http://bit.ly/2V1LBaJ

    [18:52] How has partnering with Microsoft helped KenSci to scale and grow your business?

    [20:33] How can people find out more about Microsoft partnership opportunities for healthcare partners?

    Sunny: For more information, you can send an email to HealthcareIndExp@microsoft.com.

    INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:

    [00:48] Artificial Intelligence is very prevalent nowadays, especially in HealthCare, and providers are converting their data to digital format to leverage the benefits of the latest innovations in technology. What are the challenges health care providers face when trying to go digital?

    [01:16] The principal challenge that providers and payers face is that their data is stored on many different systems.

    [01:57] Essentially, the principal issue is the disparate disconnect of data across different systems.

    [02:24] The second challenge providers face is that their data is frozen.

    [03:09] How are we working towards finding a cure for Coronavirus?

    [06:20] To leverage the power of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in health care, you need to be able to access the data.

    Twitter: @avrohomg
    Instagram: @avrohomg

    INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:

    [00:51] The nature of Healthcare-based services is changing to what’s known as value-based care. First of all, what does that mean? Also, what are the challenges healthcare providers face with regard to shifting to a value-based care paradigm?

    [01:07] Value-based care is a paradigm shift from caring for “sick” to caring for “health”.

    [02:19] 20% of patients with multiple chronic conditions consume 65% - 70% of Medicare spending, the biggest demographic being seniors.

    [02:30] Minimizing and preventing unneeded hospitalization of seniors can save a lot of money for Medicare, as well as families.

    [03:30] People are healthier, and living longer than ever before, but we are not better off when it comes to chronic diseases.

    [04:05] How is your company, eCare21, helping healthcare providers deliver value-based care?

    [05:07] Starting from 2015, Medicare started adding payment codes to incentivize doctors to provide value-based care.

    [06:35] While we can’t entirely eliminate personal caregivers and human interactions, we can leverage modern technology, such as wearables, to provide monitoring of vitals for when caregivers aren’t present.

    [08:53] How would a healthcare provider use your solution with Azure?

    [09:37] How can doctors leverage mobile applications to deliver better care?

    [11:26] Mobile applications and wearables enable doctors to scale.

    [12:34] How can customers find out more about the eCare21 solution, and procure it through the Azure Marketplace?

    Vadim: You can access it via this link: https://bit.ly/2TFOs78

    [13:18] How has partnering with Microsoft helped eCare21 scale and grow your business?

    [14:29] Connected Health is about building health.

    How do people connect with you?

    Vadim: You can visit our website at http://www.ecare21.com. You can also follow us on Twitter at @eCare21.

    [16:12] How can people find out more about Microsoft partnership opportunities for healthcare partners?

    Vadim: For more information, you can send an email to HealthcareIndExp@microsoft.com.

    [00:51] Artificial Intelligence is very prevalent nowadays, especially in HealthCare, and providers are converting their data to digital format to leverage the benefits of the latest innovations in technology. What are the challenges HealthCare providers face when trying to go digital?

    [01:21] Some of the biggest challenges HealthCare providers face when trying to go digital are keeping up with administrative challenges and keeping up with the data.

    [02:22] How is cliexa helping HealthCare providers through its Artificial Intelligence-based solution set?

    [02:22] We collect the necessary information, and package it for the doctors, the way they would like to see it.

    [02:53] For Artificial Intelligence to be effective in HealthCare, you need to have a valid data-set that you can apply, and have the system learn from it using machine learning, so that you can predict things for the doctors.

    [03:33] Leveraging AI and Machine Learning during intake can increase HealthCare efficiency, by cutting doctor visit time by 10 minutes per patient visit!

    [04:12] What is so innovative about cliexa? Doesn’t everybody collect data?

    [06:02] Leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Digital Health helps doctors cross-reference symptoms across all patients and demographics.

    [07:04] Finally, a cure for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

    [08:06] HealthCare should evolve, as the bacteria and viruses are evolving. This is why collecting the right data is so important.

    [09:12] Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can help eliminate unknown medicine side effects by analyzing large data feeds.

    [09:35] How can Artificial Intelligence help better diagnose patients’ quality of life maladies?

    [10:39] How can HealthCare providers leverage wearables to provide preventative care?

    [13:06] Wearables are game-changers in HealthCare because if you can control the symptoms when they’re small, you might be able to avoid needing medication, or even invasive action, down the road!

    [13:55] How would a healthcare provider use your solution with Azure?
