HealthData Talks: 2023 Health Data Outlook

In this HealthData Talks episode, Shannon Larkin and Tom Liddell, CEO of Harmony Healthcare IT, discuss the outlook for 2023 in the world of health data.

(0:40) The podcast starts with Larkin and Liddell discussing macro trends trending in the industry around health data storage. Liddell goes into to detail on the financial impacts, workforce shortages, and capital pressure on tech in the industry, which will overall lead to innovations in healthcare in due time.
(2:44) Larkin asks what role Harmony plays if a health system wants to scale back and tighten their IT budget. Liddell explains that managing legacy systems and archiving data can ultimately reduce costs and preserve data.
(4:05) Data volumes in healthcare are tripling every three years, which has caused challenges on how to manage large amounts of data, centralize the data, and keep the data secured. Liddell explains how Harmony manages all types and forms of data including access to archived diagnostic images (DICOM Viewer).
(5:49) Next, Larkin and Liddell discuss smart security investments. Liddell comments that without proper data security, an organization can face a large disruption with a security or privacy incident. Securing data with endpoint detection, utilizing the zero-trust concept, and HITRUST certification are all ways to ensure secure digital data.
(8:30) Liddell gives insight from a recent CHIME focus group he took part in, where conversation around a Cures Act strategy as it relates to historical data was discussed.
(10:35) Liddell discusses patient identity management and the importance of getting disparate systems organized into an architecture that allows data to be easily moved and integrated with other systems to release patient information when needed.
(12:45) Lastly, Larkin and Liddell review the 2022 year for Harmony. Liddell hits on how the team continued to execute on the mission of preserving vital information to improve the lives of others, driving the work Harmony does. The expansion of Harmony’s HealthData Platform™ also took place in 2022, a standard but flexible approach to managing all types of data.
