The Digitalization of Healthcare - Where the trends are trending at

 

Integrated Patient Data – EHR

An electronic health record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. EHRs are real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely to authorized users. While an EHR does contain the medical and treatment histories of patients, an EHR system is built to go beyond standard clinical data collected in a provider’s office and can be inclusive of a broader view of a patient’s care.

In simple connotation, an electronic health record is the healthcare industry’s very own Big Data. It is an extensive record of intricate information, comprising a patient’s complete medical history, diseases and ailments, details of surgical processes, diagnoses, treatment and medication, vaccination, immunization, lab reports, and medical images (x-rays and ultrasounds, etc.).

This data does not only provide an insight into a patient case, but also holds immense potential for healthcare administration to automate, streamline, and optimize workflow and to access evidence-based, turnkey tools that can be used in on-point and logical decision-making related to patient care, and also in strategic planning.

Streamlined Delivery of Healthcare

The biggest operational advantage of automation of the healthcare industry is the level of efficiency achieved through streamlined processes, better communications, and personalized care – which altogether translates into unparalleled care experience for the patient, from admission to discharge and post-discharge care. Not just that, integration of digital technologies in care processes also helps in minimizing costs, waste, provides increased predictability of outcomes, higher throughput, and data-driven insights. 

Resource Optimization

Healthcare practices that consider automation as an evitable expense are absolutely clueless about how much not choosing to automate will cost them in the not-so-long term. Integrating digital technologies for automation is a one-time investment that allows you to utilize your current resources at best. It eliminates the need for hiring additional overheads and can be scaled to deliver to your changing needs.

Smart Scheduling

By employing digital technology in healthcare practices, certain processes such as scheduling, rescheduling, or canceling appointments, or laboratory tests and procedures can be effectively automated. This allows patients to get tasks like these done from the convenience of home, or even on-the-go and thereby saving hassle and redundancies at the patients and facilities ends alike. We have a lot of   

Enhanced Job Specialization

Automation excludes paperwork from the equation, eliminating redundancies from the process, thereby leaving more time for physicians as well as the care staff to focus more on their jobs and excel at it.

Seamless virtual connectivity

Patients, or even physicians for that matter, do not need to be present at the practice, to be able to receive or provide care. Digital technology has made it possible for patients, as well as physicians, stay connected through digital means, such as mobile phone or web-based application. They can conveniently share information, discuss their case, and seek advice – and thanks to HER, physicians can access patient records from anywhere, at any time.
