As you may recall from last month’s article, in the world of health care I.T., there is a focus on portals. These portals are built to meet Meaningful Use Sections 170.304(h) and 170.306(d), which provide patients with the ability to access clinical summaries, as well as health information. 

Portals, if well built, facilitate communications with patients and doctors using a common set of data, and they put the data into a more understandable context for the doctor. Moreover, the use of portals increases the amount of meaningful data that’s available within the portals.  This includes leveraging analytics built around local and remote big data systems that provide the ability to validate diagnostics and treatments against massive amounts of historical treatment and outcome data.
