regulatory barriers

Aren't there regulatory barriers to this kind of digital health solution? The regulatory framework for a DHA is already in place. Technological advances and economic forces have created an environment where Sage could actually be possible. 

  1. Health systems have to give you your data upon request

  2. Providers must send that data to an application you designate

  3. Apps using this data must be secure and private

The technical and regulatory pathway is clear. Nothing in law or regulation prevents consumer-mediated health record-sharing.
