Gregory C. Simon, executive director, White House Cancer Task Force, spoke at the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Policy Summit, held just 2 days before the Cancer Moonshot Summit….

…Simon argued that science is not hard, its people who make things hard. The moonshot is organized around promoting collaboration between the government and outside players….

‘Just like the original moonshot, the Cancer Moonshot is about using technology and the resulting information.’ Simon, a cancer survivor himself, cited how removing data silos and access to information had helped with his treatment.

The Cancer Moonshot led by President Joe Biden is picking up pace drawing industry attention from all sides. Thankfully, some of the worlds greatest minds and companies are coming together to, as MD Anderson says, “make cancer history”.

Leveraging technology to gather and analyze all the relevant data is an essential part of understanding how cancer can be made history. Healthcare providers, HIEs, and patient’s alike carry significant data in this pursuit. Fortunately, the healthcare industry is also getting serious about tearing down data silos and enabling data exchange between healthcare organizations, patients, and trusted researchers. In the end, this results in better data highways and more effective initiatives such as the Cancer Moonshot.

Each day, our customers create interfaces that push the boundaries of tradition data sharing that lead to smarter patient populations and, ultimately, better patient care.
