CommonHealth: Collecting, Storing and Sharing Health Records on Android Devices
January 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Ida Sim, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine, UCSF, and JP Pollak, PhD, Chief Product Officer, The Commons Project. In April 2018 Apple introduced Health Records functionality to Apple Health, providing iOS users the ability to use their EMR portal logins to download, store, view and share clinical data. The promise of this technology is to tackle the fragmentation and lack of person-centricity endemic in healthcare, providing people with a more complete picture of their health, and enabling researchers and app developers to build new and innovative digital services leveraging these data. The Commons Project, UCSF, Cornell Tech, and Sage Bionetworks are collaborating to build CommonHealth, to bring the same functionality to Android device owners. In this presentation we discuss the mobile health technology ecosystem, and how we’re addressing consent and privacy issues related to sharing data with third party applications.
