Almost same at FDA Sentinel Program
The FDA Sentinel Program does the same thing although the queries and what is being mined relative to what they are searching for could be different. It's also a lifeline for hospitals needing money as they join as "owners" they get to share in money that is made here too. So in addition for contributing patient medical data they get to participate in profits earned. like Boston Scientific who signed on to mine data about their products. With the latest Mayo app with Apple, patients were disappointed they could not "get" their data, in other words download and take it with them from the app, so I assume patient inupt data goes over the labs as well. You do see the Mayo CEO almost doing commercials as they too saw this as a revenue stream.
The diabetes study, same stuff that comes out of the FDA data mining and their knee and hip recent report, same thing that was done by Kaiser a while back. McLaren hositals signed up here a while back as they were on dire straights for needing income too. Again selling studies and allowing data mining for a fee is the way it makes money from one standpoint.
I'm not sure if the MedQuest data (another subsidiary of Optum/United)that is collected at PBM sites is entered here or not but I would suspect it would be and that's a big data selling operation of Optum and you even seen Express Scripts using the Optum software at the PBMs to do behaviorial analycis too so when you get a prescription you are being scored there too.
There could also be some revenue cycling data in here too with Dignity, another partner who is pesently in busness with Optum in another subsidiary with putting 3000 people in place in their hospitals.
Shared Clarity, another subsidiary that Optum bought does kind of the same thing with mining data at hospitals and I would assume some of that data makes it over there too as the Labs take it beyond just beyond the one hospital system, again it creates revenue streams for thos hospital system sending their EMR data and so far nothing that big but wait and see if there's anything of more substance than the FDA Sentinel program doing the same thing I guess.
