Dismantling Data Silos in Healthcare

Transforming Data in Healthcare

Understanding Modernization

The beating heart of healthcare?

Data

With each passing second, an unfathomable amount of data comes to life. It spans patient records, genomics, financials, and more.

And, so, in this context, it’s no surprise then that healthcare contributes a staggering 30% of the world’s data volume.

However, the massive scale presents a stark challenge: too often, this wealth of data is siloed and scattered.

Enter the following three game-changers redefining how healthcare uses data.

Modern Data Platforms and the Benefits of Cloud Technology

In the digital landscape, modern data platforms serve as a central hub for an organization’s data, collecting, organizing, and enhancing data to unlock actionable insights. Nevertheless, these platforms’ true potential is only fully realized when coupled with cloud technology, a fusion that offers unparalleled scalability, flexibility, and modularity.

Picture a digital reservoir empowered by the Cloud’s elasticity, effortlessly adapting to the volatile data needs of healthcare organizations.

It radically transcends the constraints of traditional on-premises solutions, providing a dynamic environment that flexes with evolving data needs. The marriage of these platforms with the Cloud also catalyzes secure and efficient data sharing within the complex healthcare ecosystem. Envision seamless data exchange between healthcare organizations, payers, and providers, free from compatibility issues or data silos—in short, transformative synergy.

Are you ready for a future where data isn’t just better managed but better utilized, with digital transformation to drive improved patient care and operational efficiencies?

It is within reach.

Your Cloud Journey and Readiness

Entering the realm of cloud-based modern data platforms requires a certain degree of readiness.

However, organizations need not be cloud migration experts from the outset.

Much like embarking on a grand adventure, preparedness and a detailed roadmap are crucial.

One roadmap tool is the online AWS Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool (CART), a self-guided checklist designed to gauge your organization’s level of preparedness for transitioning to the Cloud.

This assessment can transform a tentative plan into a well-defined, strategic course of action, outlining the steps needed to traverse the cloud migration pathway smoothly.

Data, Innovation, and Digital Revolution

The digital revolution in healthcare isn’t coming…

…it’s already here.

And it’s transforming our lives.

RBC reports that by 2025, we expect the annual growth rate of data in healthcare to hit 36%—with wearable technologies paving the way for increased and personalized, effective treatment—outstripping industries such as manufacturing, financial services, and media & entertainment.

Can you imagine interacting with digital devices over 1,400 times a day?

Harnessing the potential of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence may be the only way healthcare organizations can move beyond descriptive analytics to predictive and prescriptive analytics for improved patient outcomes and operational efficiencies.

That’s becoming our reality, making data modernization essential for any healthcare company hoping to stay competitive.
