Accurate, De-identified Patient Data: The Key to a Longitudinal Patient Journey

A data-rich longitudinal patient journey is key to research and development, commercialization and marketing in the world of life sciences and pharmaceuticals. But how does a comprehensive patient journey come to fruition? At its core is high-quality de-identified patient data, matched across myriad data sources in a HIPAA-compliant, privacy-protecting manner.

The traditional patient journey consists of many stops along the way: from a patient developing symptoms to seeking treatment, visiting a doctor or a hospital, picking up medication from the pharmacy, following up with a healthcare provider and more. All of these data points sit in different locations including electronic medical records (EMR), hospital “chargemaster” data, pharmacy claims, lab tests, payer claims and more. This wide scattering creates a fragmented picture of the patient due to a lack of interoperability amongst the data itself. HealthVerity solutions bring data to life in a way that’s fully privacy-shielding (HIPAA-compliant), and interoperable. In this talk, HeathVerity will demonstrate how comprehensive de-identified patient level data is breaking down silos and fueling insight critical to our nation’s public health.
