Google launches Cloud Healthcare API to address interoperability conundrum

Google has launched a new cloud application programming interface (API) that aims to address interoperability challenges in the healthcare industry.

 

Cloud Healthcare API is an open-source tool designed to enable healthcare providers to collect and manage various types of medical data via the cloud, including DICOM, HL7 and Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards.

Google hopes the API will provide a jumping-off point for healthcare organisations to launch analytics and machine-learning projects in the cloud, using data aggregated from multiple clinical systems.

Healthcare providers will be able to run analytics on this data to identify patterns that could help improve patient outcomes.
