Google has launched a new healthcare API to combat COVID-19


Joe Corkery: The Google Cloud Healthcare API is an application, or basically an application layer that we built to enable healthcare data interoperability, to enable healthcare organizations, healthcare application developers, to share a wide variety of different types of healthcare data types. In particular, it’s focused on medical record and medical imaging data, supporting DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) data for medical imaging, as well as HL7v2 (Health Level Seven International, version 2) messages as well, and the FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) records for clinical data. It helps with the ingestion, storage and serving of that data to enable organizations to do analytics on that data, to train machine learning models, to build applications on top of that.
