Healthcare Systems Integration
Systemic problems plague the healthcare industry. We’ve all heard the discussions surrounding physician burnout. Demanding schedules, stressful situations, lack of time to connect with patients, and lack of sleep are just a few factors that can lead to emotional exhaustion and sap motivation for physicians and other healthcare workers. Recent research also shows that physician burnout doubled the odds of involvement in patient safety incidents.
The current situation with healthcare organizations is this: They’re gathering a lot of data—and we mean a lot—but much of it is lost in translation. The volume of information can be overwhelming, and facilities end up leveraging only a fraction of it. It’s understandable. Tons of information flows into health systems across different timelines and in different formats, ranging from medical records and departmental data to operational and financial reporting. To successfully develop and execute a strategic plan, healthcare executives desperately need a way to distill and digest all this data.
