Through SMART, FHIR, and the Argonaut Project, standardized APIs for EHR data interoperability are finally starting to show serious signs of traction. That means the health industry will start to see more complete records, better care, and more robust data sets that can power machine learning algorithm. But it also means more data in the hands of patients, and more responsibility for developers...
