Google Cloud’s API aims to build on advancements made during the COVID-19 pandemic, which pushed healthcare organizations to rapidly adopt virtual care and remote trials. This has left healthcare app developers and researchers with the need for easy and secure ways to manage patient consent, according to Jameson Rogers, PhD, Google Cloud Healthcare & Life Sciences product manager. Further, the explosion of rich data generated by devices such as glucose monitors, wearables, and other sources have emphasized the importance of patient consent and privacy, as patients and caregivers look to safely incorporate data from more sources into their care plans.
