How cloud technology is accelerating health infrastructure

The pandemic has placed a huge strain on healthcare infrastructure, we have covered many questions about how the Cloud offers scale and a wide range of services to healthcare technology companies to create platforms and tools to further improve and support our healthcare infrastructure in various aspects speed.

Most healthcare providers have embraced cloud technologies and Cloud SaaS products. This year, we see that many healthcare providers are focusing on patient experiences and bringing unified experiences to the healthcare system. Let’s look at current gaps in patient experience systems and dive into how the Cloud can accelerate the path to a single system that can foster health innovation.

Healthcare providers have several systems to handle all patient interactions, it can start with a website, appointment, video consultation, DICOM systems, HMS, payment systems, insurance claims systems, digital pharmacy, internal personnel management systems and many more. others. meet the needs of patients. The biggest challenge is to get these systems to talk to each other. Because they are distributed, patients are overwhelmed and often feel the need to take responsibility for connecting points, which often results in unnecessary stress on the entire model of surgery.

Cloud can now help healthcare providers integrate all of these distributed systems into one panel and create additional features such as mid-level notification using services called “iPaaS – Integration Platform as a Service.” They are ready to deploy platform services, removing any requirements for complex development or the need to redeploy existing systems, including authentication. This will allow healthcare providers to choose any product / solution in the background and use cloud services to create a unified experience for the patient.

As a country, we are also dynamic, and efficient healthcare is the key to good governance, and cloud technologies such as iPaaS services can accelerate the launch of healthcare schemes, provide a unified view of scheme effectiveness and a unified experience across multiple systems that provide backend food. However, the concept of a single experience is not new in itself. This is called the “Digital Front Door” system. However, the development of such services has traditionally not been cost-effective because Cloud, which offers a level of managed integration, removes or reduces efforts to create such a system.

Our current experience and market demands suggest that the Cloud will play a role in supporting healthcare infrastructure in three key areas:

  1. The constant growth of SaaS solutions for healthcare
  2. Analytics in the cloud
  3. The only patient experience is through innovative cloud technologies.

As 5G is just around the corner and cloud service providers continue to invest in Edge networking technologies, it is fair to assume that Cloud will continue to drive digital healthcare innovation and the ability to provide quality healthcare in remote regions.
