February 20, 2017, Orlando, FL – Fogo Data Centers, a leading Healthcare IT cloud services provider, and MI7, a leading provider of health data liberation tools and services, today announced at the HIMSS17 healthcare conference that the two companies have partnered in an effort break down silos of data through secure interoperable data solutions, a major concern for healthcare organizations.
Data that resides in silos have long been the stumbling block to true interoperability in Healthcare. The ability of healthcare information systems to work together and share information within and across organizational boundaries involves secure data exchange. However, patient data has become a new type of currency in the world of hacking and ransomware. Major hospitals and healthcare organizations have been recently victimized by nefarious actors stealing patient data and holding these organizations hostage, posing a very serious public health and safety issue.
