Free Medical Data

Came over an interesting article on the need to free medical data yesterday, via a comment on a post on r/SOLID by Where2cop508. Having quality databases of medical research publicly available in combination with the people’s access to their medical health data could lead to some very interesting innovation, I think.


Last I checked this is a HIPAA nightmare

I had made an interface (with mocked up data) where a doctor could get up in the morning and very quickly see which patients are well within specs and which ones are likely in trouble to help him plan his day.

Without going around [on my own externally ] to patients getting them to give me rights I could not access any data to start evaluating and getting my service available in hospitals/clinics
