    Newsday – Charles Boicey on Data News: Diverse Data, National Data Exchange, and AI Innovation

    Newsday – Charles Boicey on Data News: Diverse Data, National Data Exchange, and AI Innovation

    January 24, 2022: https://www.linkedin.com/in/charlesboicey/ (Charles Boicey) from https://clearsense.com/ (Clearsense) joins Bill for the news today. Truveta and LexisNexis Risk Solutions partner to advance health equity and health research quality. Traditional research rarely has access to social determinants of health or mortality data since 65% of people die outside the hospital. ONC publishes TEFCA details and FHIR roadmap. Trilliant Health discuss the data behind Z codes for social determinants of health. German Bionic releases new wearable AI robotic suits that boost human strength - taking human augmentation to new levels. And Bill and Charles put on their CIO and CTO hats respectively to discuss the clinical and IT labor shortage plus how do we create a platform and mindset of bringing the data and integration points together and setting it up so that the entrepreneurial community can innovate with us?
    Key Points:
    00:00:00 - Intro
    00:07:40 - It's been challenging for medical research to include participants representative of the diversity of our country
    00:10:10 - Mortality data is notoriously hit and miss
    00:15:50 - HIN should collaborate with stakeholders across the continuum of care, to electronically exchange digital health information, even when a stakeholder may be a business competitor
