Barriers to Healthcare digitization
The healthcare industry has been known for lagging behind in adopting the latest technologies for the betterment of healthcare delivery. At the same time, healthcare is one of those industries which are heavily regulated in terms of data protection and compliance requirements making it challenging to move quickly.
Healthcare organizations strive hard and spend an extraneous amount of effort and cost to confirm compliance and safety requirements to ensure care delivery. Challenges related to leveraging data, the inability of systems interoperable within the hospital settings lead to greater operational inefficiencies. The above issues coupled with pay for service based payment models have been responsible for inflating the cost of healthcare.
The challenge of Interoperability in modern Healthcare
After realizing this trend and with the introduction of HITECHT Act, the Healthcare industry went through a total transformation by digitizing its operations. But interoperability issues still act as a barrier, because of the high cost of technological systems and limited exchange of data between the systems, this industry is yet to achieve full benefit of digitization.
Increasing health data interoperability, leverage data analytics and access to patient data anytime, anywhere by care providers are vital to increase efficiency, reduce cost, and raise care quality. To reduce IT cost and address the rising challenges, Healthcare industry must look towards leveraging cloud technologies to host all or part of their information systems. Cloud provides benefits both in terms of cost and reduces the burden on CIO, this helps to manage end to end infrastructure empowering them to innovate quickly.
