‘Nightingale Project’ to Turn Over Millions of Medical Records to Google
November 14, 2019
A venture between Google and Ascension, one of the largest healthcare providers in the United States, will give the tech giant access to the sensitive medical information of as many as 50 million patients in 21 states.
Its venture with Google, called “The Nightingale Project,” would enable it to improve the experience of patients, consumers, providers and associates, Ascension said, as well as advance its mission of providing compassionate, personalized care to all, especially people living in poverty and those most vulnerable.
As part of the venture, Ascension is moving its IT infrastructure to Google’s cloud, adopting Google’s G Suite productivity and collaboration tools, and exploring artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, it said.
