It’s absolutely critical to have healthcare data translators. You have the technology people who speak their language and the business and clinical people who speak a different language. Translators like me have enough expertise about what both sides are trying to accomplish. We can help translate between those groups to really make an impact.
I think at its very nature, healthcare data and especially clinical data is just messy. It's unstructured and it's being captured by a lot of different people about a lot of different patients that are a highly varied population.
