Guide to a connected Health: Are your systems integrated and connected?

According to a study published by Oxford Academic in 2013, "Connected Health encompasses terms such as wireless, digital, electronic, mobile, and tele-health and refers to a conceptual model for health management where devices, services or interventions are designed around the patient’s needs, and health-related data is shared, in such a way that the patient can receive care in the most proactive and efficient manner possible."

This ultimate guide will cover how technology continues to have a positive impact on patient experiences and engagement. These efforts are achieved through the use of tools including remote patient monitoring tools, mobile apps, tele-health, secure message tools, wearable technology, and a myriad of other digital devices. The ultimate goal is for these tools to assist with keeping patients in connection with their healthcare providers.

Cloud ERP

Cloud ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) platforms not only cut costs but also streamline consolidation. When health systems are seeking flexibility in IT systems deploying at scale during acquisitions, cloud ERP allows them to launch new facilities comprehensively without exceeding budgets.

Another benefit to using cloud ERP is that, because hospitals and healthcare facilities frequently inter operate with each other, systems must act quickly making speed a critical factor. Therefore, processing this data through the implementation of cloud ERP has a direct impact on patient care.

Power BI

When hospitals utilize advanced analytics, specifically Power BI, they benefit by having:

  • Visibility across many devices anywhere and at any time.
  • They no longer must wait for things to update nightly; instead, they have almost immediate access to reports during patient care.
  • There's no longer the need for switching among applications; instead, there's EHR (electronic health record) integration to save time.
  • The combination of AI, cloud services, and data management is a big data solution that's comprehensive.

HoloLens AI Device

Utilization of this wearable technology device helps connect patients to health services in an incredibly unique manner. When hospitals use this device, they can perform surgeries with the help of virtual reality. When surgeons and doctors use this device, it acts as a virtual whiteboard allowing them to discuss the patient's procedure, in addition to any further details regarding their case.

Azure Analytics

“The largest hospitals have already adopted Azure because of what Microsoft can offer for health data security and privacy," according to Mary Ann Pitts, an Insight Cloud Solutions Specialist. Through the utilization of Microsoft's Azure Analytics in combination with AI, it's possible for physicians and surgeons to predicts patient outcomes.

Microsoft Dynamics 365

When hospitals and healthcare facilities utilize Microsoft Dynamics 365 in combination with cloud ERP and Azure analytics, it's possible for them to establish a stronger connection with their patients. For example, they can make improvements upon their abilities to deliver services, make assessments, and plan. They'll be doing so across multiple entities in coordination with measuring performance, eligibility, scheduling, intake assessment, planning, performance measurements, and outreach. Utilization of these tools allows for quicker and easier access to this information.

CRM - Microsoft Dynamics 365

When healthcare facilities utilize this tool, it's possible for them to connect with their patients and manage them from multiple locations. For example, if patients need blood drawn at a hospital, their records will be available at the healthcare facility. The financial aspects of this software are also incredible in that they're entirely automated regarding payroll, purchasing automation, and reporting.

Everything is connected and backed up on a SharePoint

SharePoint is a web-based platform that will fully integrate with Microsoft Office. While this product is primarily used as a management and storage system for documents, it's highly configurable among organizations. Healthcare facilities and hospitals utilize this method for storing records to the cloud as a low-cost way to migrate files from a shared file to SharePoint.
