Google has announced early access to its Cloud Healthcare API. The API provides access to a solution for ingesting and managing key healthcare data. The API also allows users to make that healthcare data available in order to apply machine learning and enable analytics in the cloud.
Health IT standards and health APIs are going to change how patients access their data, according to HealthITInteroperability. A recent demonstration at the Regenstrief Institute showed how patient data can be aggregated and merged from disparate data sources according to the new FHIR standard.
