Non-structured vs. structured data in healthcare: During a lecture on ‘Eliminating Faxing in Medicine’ as part of a Harvard Clinical Informatics Lectures Series, the International Patient Summary is highlighted as one appropriate format for structured data when communicating healthcare information. Structured data (vs. non-structured data as with fax) can improve healthcare clinically and administratively.
