HP Enterprise Services
Mr. Scott Gaydos, Chief Technologist, Federal Healthcare, HP Enterprise Services, US Public Sector, told us, "HP provides technology, services, and turnkey solutions to Federal Healthcare entities including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and the Military Health System (MHS). Many of these entities, in addition to private health institutions, share an ever-increasing amount of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), which typically includes Personal Health Information (PHI). The secure storage and access of this information is critical in creating a more effective infrastructure designed to enhance patient experiences and outcomes. The efficient management of sensitive information is just one example of improvements being made to better serve citizens and to support overall improvements to the U.S. populations' health.
Each federal healthcare entity currently maintains its own information repositories which continue to grow both from internally-generated data, as well as the data injected from collaborative information sharing. In some cases, HP technologies and services power the data centers and environments in which this data resides. In this scenario, HP helps to transform the technology infrastructure responsible for storing, managing, and processing data. In other cases, HP technologists provide services and solutions centered on building custom data analytic software to help public sector healthcare clients efficiently organize and utilize mass amounts of data for more informed clinical, administrative, and population healthcare decisions. However, in all cases, HP brings a wealth of healthcare industry knowledge, specifically to include, the effective use of IT in payer, provider, and public health settings.
Finally, HP also specifically focuses on some of the unique challenges facing the federal healthcare community through analytic research and development. For example, in the HP Advanced Federal Healthcare Innovation Lab (AFHIL), we are exploring technology solutions that enable entities such as the FDA to leverage the sea of data generated from the social media universe in order to better predict and act upon food recalls. Analyzing what people are talking about publically across social media outlets concerning health, the food they consume, and even where they're located, can potentially lead to more effective communications when recalls are necessary for public safety."
