Increasing Health Equity by Improving Data Collection and Reporting in Healthcare

It’s the 10th anniversary of National Health IT (NHIT) Week and this year’s topic is #HealthEquity. Health equity is best described as giving people what they need to achieve their best health outcomes. Unfortunately, much of the data we use to improve patient outcomes in areas like population health, mental health, and chronic disease management,Continue reading “Increasing Health Equity by Improving Data Collection and Reporting in Healthcare”

Did We Revamp Digital Health Collaboration During COVID-19?

Technology has unrealized potential to elicit powerful changes in healthcare. Breaking down barriers and coming together as a community benefits everyone, since we’re stronger as a group than we are as individuals. Was COVID-19 the “shot in the arm” we needed as a community, to work together toward the advancement of digital health? Collectively, asContinue reading “Did We Revamp Digital Health Collaboration During COVID-19?”

How Automation Improves Healthcare

Since the pandemic began, we’ve witnessed ways in which Robotic Process Automation (RPA) reduces gaps, increases organizational productivity, and streamlines operations. These are the driving reasons why many hospitals and health systems are embracing the benefits of RPA, and prioritizing it as a key aspect of their digital transformation. Here are a few areas toContinue reading “How Automation Improves Healthcare”

RPA Solves Problems, But It Requires People Skills to “Plug it In”

RPA has proven its value as a strong technology to support an enterprise’s strategic goals. But getting it right has its challenges. A successful implementation begins by finding the right processes to automate. Like many technology investments, success depends on having the right people onboard, who can help you push past the obstacles when theyContinue reading “RPA Solves Problems, But It Requires People Skills to “Plug it In””

The Benefits of Applying Automation to Population Health Goals

The COVID-19 global pandemic highlighted the need for a population health approach to identify and implement strategies in healthcare. In doing this, we quickly realized our inability to input, organize, and share data across and between information silos. Without a more complete “view,” our ability to measure is inaccurate, failing to meet the goals ofContinue reading “The Benefits of Applying Automation to Population Health Goals”

Making It Easier to Connect in Health IT

Connecting people, process, and workflow has always been a bit of a struggle for Health IT. OK, it’s been a big struggle. Over the years, we’ve made “limited” strides in terms of interoperability. It has not been fast, it has never been easy, and we continue to deal with the lack of connectivity on aContinue reading “Making It Easier to Connect in Health IT”

Bridging the Gaps Between Healthcare Effectiveness and Cost-Efficiency

We talk a lot about the gaps in healthcare: the inefficiencies between systems and silos, people, and processes, that make it more difficult than it should be to get things done. Never has healthcare efficiency been more important. The key to operating during these lean times is to pair technology solutions with a business modelContinue reading “Bridging the Gaps Between Healthcare Effectiveness and Cost-Efficiency”

Key Points to Consider Before Implementing RPA in Healthcare

Healthcare has been challenging the last six months. We’ve taken on the need for a new model of care delivery to reach a broader patient population with less risk of exposure. According to a report by McKinsey, telehealth providers have rapidly scaled offerings and are seeing 50 to 175 times the number of patients viaContinue reading “Key Points to Consider Before Implementing RPA in Healthcare”

Is RPA the Missing Piece in Healthcare?

We’ve learned a lot of lessons through this pandemic. We are still learning. But one thing is certain: we’ve made great strides in digital health. We’ve adapted to the constraints posed by embracing technology and realizing that we could actually thrive in times of uncertainty, in ways we never imagined.
