Google takes health care to the cloud with new API, partnerships

Google takes health care to the cloud with new API, partnerships”

As such, Google's ambitions in the sector are "very much a reflection of its overall mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful", Greg Moore, vice president of healthcare for Google Cloud, wrote in a blog post.

Such analysis could enable new insights from the data and result in potentially significant clinical improvements for patients, Moore said.

Just like many other Google cloud platform services App Engine too now offers multiple security capabilities for secure handling of health care data. Data from the API will facilitate the training and deployment of new AI-powered medical technologies.

To that end, Google's new Cloud Healthcare API is created to help healthcare providers manage and organize a range of data types and make it available for things such as machine learning and analytics.

As part of our early access launch, we're already working with a group of customers and partners, including the team at the Stanford School of Medicine.

He touted Monday's announcement of Google Cloud Healthcare API, which allows the user to take the data out of existing data stores like EHRs and put them in a normalized way into these new databases. "The ability to combine interoperability with Google Cloud's scalable analytics will have a transformative impact on our research community", Stanford School of Medicine Research IT director Somalee Datta said in prepared statement.

The goal is to free up the flow of information leading to actionable insights from artificial intelligence and machine learning that can improve health outcomes.

There are many reasons healthcare is increasingly moving to the cloud, Dr. Joe Corkery, product lead of health & life sciences at Google Cloud, told Healthcare Dive earlier in the day.

In addition to the the Cloud Healthcare API, we have a long history of supporting open APIs directly on GCP.

LAS VEGAS-The former executive chairman of Alphabet has a message for healthcare providers: Move your data to the cloud. "Google was trying to build electronic health records", he explained.

Schmidt insisted that he didn't care whether hospitals used Google's cloud storage or one of its competitors'.

Wachter, who is the author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype, and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine's Computer Age, said the company's attitude was "we're going to revolutionize healthcare because we're Google-we'll figure it out".

Yet, this initiative isn't Google's first foray into the healthcare market. Providers should be more anxious about how to improve care for patients than where to store data. Using a secure, scalable and industry-grade API platform, Apigee allows Cleveland Clinic to enable, augment and extend functionality of their EHR. They're looking to optimize scheduling, identify excess costs, reduce emergency department wait times, reducing readmissions and identifying and predicting cybersecurity threats using Google Cloud's capabilities in AI and ML.
