Seqster has developed novel techniques and established relationships with health data holders in order to enable individuals to retrieve raw data from many different data sources, such as wearable devices, EHR providers and DNA providers, without the need of going long business cycle to get HIPAA business associate agreement (BAA), and meanwhile maintain data integrity and provenance. This ability to forego the BAA is only possible as a result of the Seqster business model in which the data owner is extracting their own data and agreeing to preserve it on the Seqster platform thus maintaining full data privacy, ownership and transparency. The Seqster platform is already capable of ingesting and standardizing data from the top wearable vendors and fitness app providers, many health providers that are hosted on the top EHR vendors, including, but not limited to Epic, Cerner, AllScripts, AthenaHealth, and VA (HealtheVet), representing over 70% of all hospitals and healthcare providers ...

Seqster has also developed novel techniques to harmonize raw wearable, EHR, and DNA data across different sources as a first step towards addressing the challenge of health data interoperability. In brief, raw data goes through three stages of transformation. First, raw data are parsed according to its source type (HL7 v2, CCDA, Custom API, etc.) and transformed into JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format. Secondly, the JSON formatted data is stored into Seqster structured relational database tables and become easily searchable entities. Finally, the structured data across multiple sources are standardized into a consistent set of terms that allow users to see longitudinal data from fitness activities, biometrics, lab results, and medication usage across disparate sources. This process unifies various coding systems like ICD-9/10, RxNorm, and LOINC into a novel health data interoperability framework. Seqster's approach to data aggregation with direct chain of custody enables of high value data analytics to generate new insights and interventions.
