As a technology company working with sensitive healthcare data, ClearDATA understands the importance of privacy. “ClearDATA was founded to help with patient care,” said Jonathan Slaughter, Director of Compliance, Security and Privacy at ClearDATA. “Privacy matters to us because we’re talking about real people and their healthcare, it is more than just numbers and data.”
Sharing is caring: Prioritizing patient care and privacy
Misdiagnosis is the third leading cause of death in the United States (behind cancer and heart disease.) “Many providers want to use emerging technologies to improve outcomes, and while some are innovating in the most interesting and effective ways,” said Slaughter, “some are still clinging to what they know and continue to believe – that data in silos is the best practice. This couldn’t be further from the truth because it’s not the most secure and it’s not collaborative, and therefore, not leading to the best insights to improve patient care. Data can be lifesaving if data is shared securely.”
