Powering Interoperability in Healthcare
OUR GUEST Chris Bradley, CEO and Co-Founder of Mana Health, joined the show to talk to us about the current state of interoperability, the potential of interoperability and how Mana Health is Powering Interoperability in Healthcare.
Specifically, we discuss the following with Chris on this episode:
- (3:31) From your perspective, what is the current state of interoperability in Healthcare?
- (4:09) Healthcare has a reputation for being behind the 8 ball with regards to innovation, is that fair?
- (5:42) Are you starting to see an emergence of APIs in healthcare?
- (7:15) How will the growing force of value based care impact health IT and interoperability?
- (9:11) In 2015, we had several guests that discussed Population Health, but I’ve not seen too much conversation this year. From your perspective, what is the state of population health and machine learning?
- (11:13) In one of my internships at General Dynamics in 1987, I was part of an artificial intelligence project, but since I’ve seen almost no AI though I am reading about an AI How will that be applied to healthcare?
- (16:01) What’s next for Mana Health? What are you working on now that your customers will be excited about in 2017?

About Chris Bradley
Chris is a recognized thought leader and innovator in the world of healthcare data and interoperability. A son of two physicians, having grown up both in Italy and Hawaii, Chris learned from his parents that medical records provided immense amounts of information but not the insights they had expected. His early realization was that by combining medicine and computer science, raw data could be transformed into a highly effective and efficient tool to positively impact the health of patients on a massive scale. This realization was the foundation of Mana Health using the word “mana” in native Hawaiian which means “flowing energy.”
Chris has contributed to interoperability conversations at a national scale at the White House, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and in other important venues. He been the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the NYU Presidential Service Award, 1st Place at the Innovation Competition in 2012 and the Harold Hertzberg Commencement Award. Chris was also honored to be a speaker at TEDxNYU 2012. He holds a B.A. in Neuroscience and Cell Biology, with a Minor in Cognitive Science from Rutgers University, and completed his M.S. in Computer Science from Polytechnic Institute of NYU.
About Mana Health
Mana Health is dedicated to streamlining data access, interoperability, and innovation in healthcare. Mana is a Hawaiian word that means “flowing energy.” We chose that word to represent what we do, because our mission is to help healthcare data flow more easily across the healthcare system (and our CEO and Co-Founder grew up in Hawaii). We began our journey in 2013, when we designed our award-winning patient portal around the idea that patients would bring their own data to create a unified health record. As value-based care accelerated, so did the need for greater innovation around mobile engagement, data analytics, and connected devices. We realized that the future required a more flexible solution, that allowed innovators to build upon a secure data platform, using robust API’s that fulfill the needs of a broader development community. We released our ManaCloud platform to support those broader needs to help power the future of healthcare the way we hope to see it evolve. (from https://www.manahealth.com/company/about-us/)
