Amazon-powered Data Fusion Center is going to shed light on using telehealth

The national health IT Collaborative is saying that its goal is to make social determinants of the health data which are available for the institutions who may not have access to it.

The National Health IT Collaborative for the Undeserved and a non-profit organization is now gearing up for advancing health equity and economic viability. It is going to come in a plan with the recently launched platform. It is aiming for building many actionable insights from the social determinants of the health data. 

The Amazon-powered Data Fusion Center is using de-identified data with the publicly available information. It is going to allow for a greater understanding of the various ways with which different SDOH intersect.

This can be very useful, according to NHIT leaders, for investigating the disparities in accessing virtual care. As the utilization metrics combines with the non-traditional clinical data points, the access to speed and public transportation is growing much.

They believe that it is going to help in identifying and highlighting the gaps and opportunities. These are going to lead towards actionable recommendations for the policymakers, healthcare organizations, and other communities.

Overlapping injustices and the inequities are including all the denial of access to safe housing, transportation, and clean water, etc. This can play a very important role in the health of the individual or the community.

The center is now aiming to shed light on various ways of these factors. It can now affect wellness using the de-identified data from the state and federal agencies. Also, there are open data repositories from various private companies like Change healthcare. With all regards to privacy, Belen says that the center is not currently managing HIPAA or any individual data.

In case there is a lack of access within a policy maker’s district for clean water and hospital services, the Fusion Center can assist in generating data-informed metrics and recommendations. These will be on the basis of the aggregation of all the local government data along with the neighboring city and county data. Also, it is going to use the state and other federal agency data.

The center is now getting deployed on Amazon Web Services, which is going to provide computing credits and various operational supports for the deployment.
