How Data Integration is Handling Disruption in Healthcare

How Data Integration is Handling Disruption in Healthcare

Healthcare and life sciences organizations are adapting quicker than ever to meet new demands brought on by disruption. Whether that means creating digital experiences for patients – like web portals and apps – or facilitating shared access to healthcare data, it’s now more important than ever for these organizations to digitally transform. 

Top-notch healthcare organizations have adopted a modern data integration approach to eliminate the connectivity bottleneck and enable faster value generation. Reimagined data integration solutions empower these organizations to consolidate and use healthcare data to ensure the best care for their patients. 

Here are three ways how modern data integration solutions enable healthcare organizations to deliver the best care to patients:

1. Integrating Healthcare Data in Minutes 

Healthcare data is turning complex and voluminous with disruption at its peak. Without robust technology, organizations fail to access and analyze this data properly, thus impacting patient experiences and care. Modern data integration solutions play a vital role here. 

Healthcare organizations can integrate complex, bi-directional data streams in minutes instead of months using a modern data integration solution. Users can create onboarding connections in minutes instead of months by pointing and clicking through easy screens. Consequently, patients need not wait for weeks or months to get connected and receive the promised care and experience. 

2. Empowering Non-Technical Users 

Modern data integration solutions with self-serve capabilities empower non-technical users to create data connections with patients. With features such as pre-built application connectors, shared templates, monitoring dashboards, AI-data mapping etc., even non-technical users can integrate and analyze healthcare data and make decisions accordingly. 

At the same time, technical teams can focus on more strategic tasks and ride the innovation wave with ease and precision. Actually, IT is freed up from day-to-day implementation but continues to serve in a high-level governance role, managing the integration environment while being freed from tedious and thankless API coding and EDI mapping. IT can focus on more high-value tasks instead of getting bogged down in the data integration tedium.

3. Incorporating Transformative Technologies Such as AI and ML

Technologies such as AI and ML have the potential to revolutionize the healthcare landscape. They enable healthcare organizations to integrate and interpret healthcare data with speed and precision. These solutions empower non-technical users to create intelligent data mappings all by themselves while freeing IT to take up the role of governance. 

These solutions guide IT data mappers—with field-by-field data mapping recommendations backed by specific confidence levels. It also supports each mapping suggestion with the rationale of the suggestion along with possible cautions. As they automate many of the mapping steps, IT experts are freed to focus on more productive tasks.

Disruption is impacting the healthcare world. Healthcare organizations can navigate disruption and deliver high-quality patient experiences using modern data integration solutions. By leveraging modern data integration solutions, healthcare organizations can empower their non-technical users to create data connections in minutes, thus improving the quality of care given to patients by leaps and bounds.
