In healthcare we are often dealing with a 5,000 piece puzzle, trying to understand how they all connect. But some pieces are the ugly underbelly parts. Not at all fun to talk about but still important pieces in understanding how the system works.
Data access is a conversation we've been having over and over again. When I hear about people who can get information on their pet, from their vet, within minutes, without any issues, it just seems sad. We have done a better job to make sure that our animal’s medical records are more available than people.
