Health Data Consortium is an advocacy group focused on helping the healthcare industry respond to the availability of health data. They are currently focused on innovation and the uses of open health data.
Healthcare is currently undergoing some radical changes and data science is going to play a key role in the future of healthcare. It is great to see the medical field building an official group to define the practice. I hope other industry will follow the lead of the medical field and begin forming their own groups around open data. I am eager to see how the Health Data Consortium progresses over the coming years and months.
