Episode 18: Identifying the signal in the noise—How to make sense of 19 terabytes of data each year, with Chase Zaputil of Veda
The U.S. healthcare sector generates 19 terabytes of clinical data each year—and that’s doesn’t even include any financial, operational, patient, or systems data. Chase Zaputil, chief growth officer at Veda, joins Justin to talk about all that data: how to measure its quality and value, how to reduce inaccuracy, and why old data isn’t necessarily bad data. Justin and Chase explore the role of data in healthcare interoperability, the current state of pharmacy benefits and drug costs, and how data can help reduce inequity in healthcare.
Justin and Chase also attempt to answer some tricky questions facing the industry: Is the sheer volume of healthcare data actually muddling decision-making? Should the government intervene to promote interoperability? And can pharma manufacturers lower drug prices by getting involved with distribution?
