Do You Know What A State-Run ‘HIE’ Is? Me Neither, But Gerard Knows.

By Sean Martin, host of At The Edge

In this part 1 of our 2-part podcast, Gerard Scheitlin from Orion Health looks at the state-run health information exchanges (HIEs) and how patient data is collected, accessed, and shared, giving us some insight into how population health and precision medicine are provided through their leveraging of these systems. The big question is, are we as patients automatically opting in to share our personal health information with the state (and federal) government?

Health Records Should Belong To Patients

By Sean Martin, host of At The Edge and An InfoSec Life

What does a healthcare record include? It’s becoming much more than pure health information; it’s becoming a full-on genetics + socio-economical record as well. With all of the information captured as part of our medical history the following questions emerge: What benefits can we expect? How does it change the way the healthcare ecosystem operates? What risks does society face having all of this information stored and made accessible electronically? Gerard Scheitlin, the Chief Risk Officer and chief of security, risk and assurance for Orion Health, explores this topic with us.
