Presentation: Transforming health research through the use of a Secure Health Data Cloud

Many challenges exist with health information exchange as the result of a legacy of information silos controlled by healthcare organizations. This presentation will discuss the characteristics of this QuantalUEL and an infrastructure for implementing the Secure Health Data Cloud.

The current health information system interoperability effort promoted by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology is to develop a standardized electronic health record integrated with a complex federated network, while insisting that all users “speak” the same complicated language (HL7 V3, SNOMED, ICD-10, etc.).

In December of 2010 the President’s Council of Advisors for Science and Technology recommended a Universal Exchange Language (UEL) as a novel, more powerful method for health information exchange that could provide a better environment for public health, health services, clinical and biomedical research. In response to this report, a group of individuals with biomedical informatics, medical semantics, and mathematics expertise, who became founders of Quantal Semantics, Inc. prepared a draft open proposal for a QuantalUEL that incorporated graphics, number and probability theory as well as quantum mechanics and could be used to “shred” and “unshred” de-identified health information for storage in and retrieval from a Secure Health Data Cloud.
