Description

The future of the EHR (Electronic Health Record) is ... the PHR (Portable Health Record). Where EHR’s record-keeping origins gives way to a richer, personal and portable health story. Stories are salvation for the empowered patient.  We’re built to tell stories, not simply to record data; to make portable life’s little vignettes, as tweets, selfies or blogs, we’re hardwired to bear and share the narratives of our neighbors.  And in modern times, sensors and algorithms along with self-reported health measures, illuminate the hidden stories of our health.  Through the “Rise of the Consumer,” a critical question is whether we need to wait for interoperability standards or whether we can proceed efficiently without them.  One popular model of modern health is centered on the individual curating then sharing their personalized and portable information.  EHR’s restrict and still silo the lifesaving data individuals need to create a longitudinal health summary that brings the greatest benefit to their lives.  It’s time to invite the patient to be at the center of their data so the collective narrative of the Empowered Patient can be heard once and for all — moving from a focus on pills and procedures to being prescriptive and predictive in their care.  

Anil Sethi is the founder and CEO of Gliimpse, Sethi’s fifth consumer health venture – a platform for patient-mediated aggregation of clinical/EHR records into computable forms sharable with humans and apps — for all 300MM US consumers. He is an investor, mHealth lecturer and mentor to StartX, UCSF, Cancer Commons, and was a board member of Johns Hopkins Medical School/SON.  He has thirty years of health tech background, and as the “Father of the CDA” has driven US interoperability standards.  Past exits/IPOs include Dakota (billing, acquired by WebMD) and Sequoia (EMR clinical data extraction, IPO then acquired by Citrix).  His Kaiser deployment was the largest patient-portal in US history.
