This article examines the question of what barriers and divisions exist when it comes to health care data and argues that “many healthcare organizations (insurance companies as well) have always thought of the data as part of their ‘Intellectual Property’” and that patients may value quality of care over data privacy.

Why Hackers are Going After Healthcare Providers

You would think hackers would focus on banks, but recently more have been targeting healthcare providers. Why? Big data. This article explores the ramifications behind healthcare providers storing massive amounts of data, often in not very secure ways.

Mobility in Healthcare on the Rise, but Not Without Barriers

This article takes a look at different use cases for integrating technology into healthcare and argues that mobile health technology is “more of an extension of what jobs you’re trying to do versus mobile will take over.”
