This episode looks at PocketHealth as an example of a cloud-based technology that has been implemented to help patients and healthcare enterprises ditch the disc and cut down on the reliance of CDs. Hosts Arjun, Prasanth, and Jason also take a look at a project at a Penn Medicine (PORTER: Patient-Oriented ReporTER) that allows patients to view an interpretation of the report in language that can be understood by patients with a non-clinical background.
