S4-5.4 - Patient Data: Security Issues and Proactivity for Empowerment
Tim Jobson of Predictive Health Intelligence joins the podcast to introduce analyzing historic blood test results to identify those at risk of Fatty Liver disease. In this conversation, panelists focus on the dual issues of patient data security and proactivity for better health outcomes.

Surfing NASH is joined by Tim Jobson, Co-founder of Predictive Health Intelligence, to discuss a system by which historic blood test results are combined and analyzed to flag patients in need of intervention. This conversation begins with focus on the dual issues of patient data and proactivity.

Roger Green states that “the careful and intelligent use of early data to empower patients to know when to ask about their own health” should yield a myriad of benefits. Louise Campbell agrees and comments on how patients feel when the system is proactively supporting them. Louise then asks what happens when the system produces an inaccurate diagnosis. Tim notes that this system provides data to clinics so that they can make the decisions. This minimizes the chance of systematic error and discourages autonomic reliance while still supporting patients in self-managing their health.

The conversation continues on the issue of patient data, concluding with Roger’s observation that the passionate belief in protecting data is half-right. He reasons that patients (like all people) favor protected data against those who would take advantage of it. However, most are comfortable with affording accessibility to those who use their data to improve patients’ health and general life.
