    HIT experts: Don’t expect Silicon Valley to launch new EHRs


    Mostashari, co-founder and CEO of Bethesda, Maryland-based Aledade Inc., a nationwide network of accountable care organizations, predicts that Amazon will lean on its usability and scale to compete in that area with potentially better pricing, customer service and usability for customers of all sizes. 

    And he predicts that Apple and Google will bring to market products that will help tackle one of the biggest problems vexing healthcare today: the lack of data portability.

    Mostashari says he envisions a future technology where the patient would store and control his or her own medical records with additional applications enabling the patient to access and share what’s needed when it’s needed with physicians and other providers.

    “That would be my dream of how the internet giants could enter healthcare,” he says, noting that Apple and Google already have applications that work similarly in other industries, such as travel and banking. A case in point is Apple Wallet, which allows users to store and manage credit cards, store loyalty cards, tickets to shows and other events, boarding passes and coupon codes.
