BT and Medred Launch Health Cloud

A new health cloud is making strides for open health data by providing access to aggregated population data (based on an anonymized population of more than 50 million lives) going back two to five years.

 

“MedRed, a Washington, D.C.-based healthcare software company, and BT, a UK-based telecommunications company, launched the health cloud Tuesday with the blessing of the federal government. The White House Office of Science and Technology invited MedRed and BT to present the MedRed BT Health Cloud (MBHC) at a big-data event Tuesday in Washington, D.C., in a move signifying the federal government's recognition of the importance of open data in healthcare.”
