Troy Bannister is the CEO of Particle Health, a company that is shaping the new standard for healthcare data exchange with a user-friendly application programming interface platform. After spending years in the healthcare industry as an EMT, clinical researcher, and medical student, he decided to attempt the seemingly insurmountable task of fixing the interoperability problem of electronic medical records. Particle Health gives application designers, and therefore patients, access to their records. You’ll get a better understanding when he explains it.
We talk about how he came up with the idea for Particle Health, the precedent in the financial industry that most of us use, how the interface works, and why blockchain isn’t necessary for portability and security.
