A Quiet Revolution

A state-view of a population.  As a by-product of providing care to their patients, information is collected quietly and seamlessly into a population health database.  This information is then reported anonymously to an analytics agency.  However, it also serves as the basis for future integrated health patient-centric views, disease registries, and innovative tools to help patients navigate to the health system proficiently, thus liberating resources and avoiding the “front page of the newspaper” outcome from the usual retrodirective data analytics.
