Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the novel coronavirus.

In this installment, I check back in with a friend of our news, Matthew Michela, president and CEO of Life Image, to discuss the ways COVID-19 has highlighted the shortcomings in data sharing and how the cloud can help resolve these issues going forward.

Last year, Matthew contributed an article to our news on effective use of real world evidence (RWE) in healthcare, and the major hurdles that can get in the way. During the summer, we spoke about the importance of interoperability when it comes to medical data.

We hope you enjoy the conversation. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next:
