Digital health data is growing at such an astronomical pace that the volume is estimated by one estimate of exabytes-2,314 exabytes. (To log, one exabyte = one billion gigabytes; and ‘all words ever spoken by human beings’ will take 5 exabytes of storage if stored as text.) The importance of this digital health data is as immense as its volume – but only if it can be accessed, controlled, and eventually exchanged for the public good.

Furthermore, health insurance expenses tend to escalate, with US health budget projections exceeding $6.2 trillion by 2028. Traction for bent back has been at the foot of value-based care (VBC) a ‘pay for results’ paradigm whose effectiveness is gradually go by monitoring biometrics in health care. Digital health systems that leverage data gathered and analyzed through remote patient tracking devices are the way forward for maximizing patient treatment, enhancing well-being and at the same time achieving VBC ‘s objectives.
Digital technologies are now into a wide variety of healthcare equipment. From diagnostic and medical imaging tools to surgical and orthopedic instruments. All of these linked tools produce a constant stream of clinical data that will help patients. Anticipate or mitigate adverse outcomes, and otherwise curate viewpoints for deeper visibility into treatment and better clinical. will expand each year.
Healthcare has been dealing with the complexities of data interoperability for decades; the sector is at the cusp of big breakthroughs at last. Whereas the new captured, safe and well-structured. Medical Things Technology (IoMT) data is in storage and protection in today’s cloud computing system. The existing medical records of patients (EMRs) remain a mystery that requires a solution.
Today, with HL7’s FHIR (Fast Health Interoperability Resources). A globally recognized data interface model for EMRs. The best chance in healthcare to achieve interoperability once and for all. Data obtained explicitly from health trackers. Such as the Apple Watch or smart phone devices, was also by this process in theory.
