4. Intelligent HealthcareUnlocking the power of dataEngage 2012 To be intelligent, healthcare systems need good data translated into effective knowledge that isBrussels disseminated to those who need to know. However, todays healthcare systems are far from being in that happy position.Embracing intelligent healthcare. A dialogueamong leading healthcare stakeholders The collection of healthcare data is an ineffective process. Language proves a big barrier. Standards vary across Europe. Important data may be ignored such as patient experiences of their treatment. OtherDecember 2012 forms of data, notably personal medical records, are not shared (despite guarantees of anonymity), so(date to be confirmed) decisions about intelligent healthcare investments cannot be made. Then there is the fact that not all healthcare data are transparent or shared appropriately. Patients in one country have access to information that people in neighbouring countries do not. The entire process of data gathering, storing and distribution is poorly regulated. Sometimes requirements are too onerous and bureaucratic, such as with the clinical trial process. In other situations such as Health Apps for smart phones regulation is just beginning. Given this cacophony how can healthcare systems unlock the power of data and become more knowledgeable and effective?
