Whichever EHR your organization is using, the advantages and requirements are similar—and the challenges can be daunting. The evolution of the industry, the threats we face, how we use data and even the programs themselves are putting unprecedented burdens on IT departments, business units and practitioners. Success requires understanding the four trends that are driving EHR evolution—mergers and acquisitions, program updates, security, and data analytics—and creating a more natural user experience for caregivers, clinicians, administrators and other users throughout the organization.

"In a highly regulated environment like healthcare, a lot of people in IT focus on meeting compliance requirements. But if you focus instead on managing the risk, the compliance will take care of itself.”

Healthcare Interoperability Using Blockchain Technology

With the industry’s increased focus on quality and continuity of care, seamless access to patient records across providers is a significant opportunity space for technologies. Blockchain can revolutionize how protected health information (PHI) is shared, simplifying, enhancing and securing collaboration between partner providers and patients, while also dramatically reducing the creation, processing, transmission and storage of paper documents.

A Sirius white paper and case study tell the story of a technology proof of concept of blockchain deployed on AWS for the representative use case “patient consent management.”

Digital Foundation

The consumerization of healthcare is changing the way organizations interact with staff, on-site and remote caregivers, patients, family and visitors. IT organizations that have traditionally been focused on operations and keep-the-lights-on (KTLO) activities now have to provide the anytime, anywhere access and unprecedented responsiveness that users expect, along with the heightened security and quality of IT services that the organization demands. That’s why today’s forward-thinking healthcare CIO has to be focused on all aspects of the digital foundation, including a platform for next-generation digital and experiential expectations.

Enormous quantities of data are being generated throughout healthcare organizations every day, including clinical and research data, individual patient data, staff utilization data, and operational/business data. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by it all, not to mention failing to capitalize on its value. Sirius Data & Analytics experts work with clients to understand best practices for capturing and analyzing data, and how to achieve the desired outcomes. Because having the right technology is important, but having the right people and processes in place is critical to a successful data and analytics strategy.

The application of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies is transforming the way healthcare organizations gather data about patients’ health and habits, track the movement of staff and equipment, and even monitor everything from vital statistics to hand-washing. A successful IoT strategy allows health systems to leverage data in ways that have been impossible until now, ensuring better outcomes throughout the organization and the community.
