How a Next Generation Health Data Hub is
Different from Traditional EMPIs

Traditional EMPI vs Next Generation Data Hubs

Traditional EMPI stakeholders have been focused on data records management and technology to deliver a single view of patient for operational purposes by HIS, EMR and HIEs.

But in the new world, health data management focus needs to transition from a single domain to multiple domains and use cases to deliver a powerful, shared and collaborative platform.
