Sharing information in real time

From physicians to patients to payers, many different groups need access to medical records for various reasons. Traditionally, organizations have had to keep separate records for each group. But with new technologies making it easier to standardize and store digital health records securely, more organizations are integrating their data so the right people have access to the data they need, when they need it.

Flexibility for patients and doctors

Patients are busy and it can be difficult to find time for appointments. Telemedicine technology and patient portals offer more opportunities to communicate with healthcare professionals. Wearable technologies, such as heart rate monitors, also offer physicians more ways to assess patient well-being and give them more opportunities to record and assess symptoms throughout their patients’ lives.

Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

Much of the current effort to integrate AI into healthcare also focused on supporting clinical decisions and extracting actionable insights from big data. Healthcare organizations have collected so much data that it is impossible to analyze it without artificial intelligence.AI tools can sift through large and complex datasets generated from electronic records, notes, images, sensors and devices to find patterns that can improve patient care and help scientists develop better treatments for conditions. While AI technology is still relatively new, there are many use cases that healthcare organizations could benefit from.
