Joe Corkery, director of product management at Google Cloud, said: “We built Healthcare Data Engine to make it easier for healthcare and life sciences organisations to bring together their data silos to innovate and improve health outcomes.”
Healthcare Data Engine can map more than 90% of HL7v2 messages to FHIR, such as medication orders or patient updates, across a number of electronic health records, according to the tech giant. Benefits of this mean customers get up-and-running quickly and avoids the need to create custom tooling or services to translate between data schemas (the…
