The healthcare landscape is very complicated and often times very disjointed. Silos are characteristic of data in the HealthCare Ecosystem. When you get sick you go your family Physician who (if at all) stores data for your visit in a local electronic medical record system. Your prescriptions get filled by a prescriptions network and Labs by the Lab network, which have their own interchange protocols and data standards. The payers or Health Plans pay for you visit using their own Electronic data interchange based standards. There are consumer service like WebMD which you use to get information from. And then there are the big Enterprise Hospitals which have a set of Silos themselves!
