It’s that time of year again: over 45,000 healthcare information and technology professionals convene for HIMSS 2019 in sunny Orlando. At this leading healthcare IT conference, important advances and industry challenges are discussed, helping experts collaborate to transform healthcare. Some of the most prominent topics this year include technology advances such as tele-health and machine learning, as well as the possibility of unlocking patient data for personalizing healthcare. Beneath these discussions lies the foundation of data driven discoveries in this field: the ever-evolving conundrum of maintaining data security.
With this in mind, join BC Platforms at Google Cloud Booth #2221 to hear our CEO Tero Silvola speak about how our company, together with Google Cloud, addresses healthcare industry challenges such as data security, leveraging the convergence of genomics, information technologies, and clinical data to create an ecosystem of data-driven resources.
Currently, genetic data production and integration into healthcare is rapidly accelerating with the rise of new technologies and consumer interest. Though this is a promising development in the field, it demands significant resource allocation and process improvements, thus creating a major challenge as existing systems attempt to manage and harmonize genetic and clinical data in a secure environment. BC Platforms enables healthcare institutions to securely harmonize genetic and clinical data, helping apply it to deliver on the promise of precision medicine.
