The healthcare industry is undergoing dramatic changes worldwide. With increasing regulation and stricter cost containment policies, healthcare and insurance companies are being pushed to streamline and modernize business process, manage information overload and introduce tighter controls for patient privacy.
MVP Network Consulting Top Three Healthcare IT Deliverables:
- IT systems accessibility and availability
- Foreseeable cost of IT systems maintenance and user support
- Data security and infrastructure compliance
ARRA & EMR
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which came into force in 2009 is key driver in the move towards modernization. This act stipulates that healthcare institutions adopt Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and modernize IT infrastructures.
Digital healthcare brings the promise of significant improvements in the speed and effectiveness of patient care and reduced errors and costs among others. However, according to the latest statistics from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, only 0.5% of US Healthcare based institutions currently have a complete EMR (electronic medical record) to provide consistency and continuity across medical records, conditions and patients.
More than ever, patients communicate with their doctors through multiple channels: email, phone calls, videos and instant messaging, creating an overload of information and prompting the need for the adoption of next-generation solutions.
