Electronic health records

Finding the Future of Electronic Health Records in the US

Electronic health recordsThe proliferation of diagnostics and screening tests in the United States has generated massive amounts of patient data. To effectively store and manage these mounting volumes of data, the US health systems have invested over $20 billion in electronic health records (EHR systems) over the past decade. Based on the data from our healthcare market intelligence, over 85% of healthcare providers and physicians in the United States had access to EHR systems by the end of 2017. Although electronic medical records are poised to revolutionize patient care by putting patient information at the doctor’s fingertips, not all physicians are content with its implementation. Physicians often find themselves caught up in data entry with limited time for patient interactions. Moreover, electronic health records are currently far from being the panacea of patient safety and operational efficiency that they were expected to be. However, as electronic health records system matures, we can expect the future of electronic health records to live up to their potential in the long run.

Several challenges must be overcome to make electronic health records more integrated, including endless customization, vendor market share protection, health system market share protection, and technological factors. Are you an EHR vendor facing a similar dilemma? RFP to know how our solutions can help.

Future of electronic health records : Key roadblocks to overcome

Electronic health recordsSiloed systems

Prior to the implementation of electronic health records in the US, healthcare providers and patients were unable to effectively follow patient in time and space. Furthermore, such siloed systems added on to the hospital expenditure and wastage of physician time, restricting the provision for a better quality of care. EHR systems have the potential to mobilize hospital’s resources and enhance the overall patient outcome. But a major challenge of EHR systems is that various vendors had separately developed systems with different data formatting, making it difficult to share patient records between hospitals, physicians and external testing labs. This also makes it challenging to use data collected by patient monitoring devices. The Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) draft standard is trying to develop a standard for storing and transmitting data across healthcare organizations. And this is now being widely accepted by vendors of electronic health records systems. The recent regulations proposed by the IS government health insurance plan might soon make FHIR mandatory for electronic health records.

Reducing physician’s data entry work

Natural language processing is a great way to reduce the time spent on data entry work for physicians and facilitates them to allot more time to patients. However, this comes with its own set of challenges. Firstly, the clarity of the output will largely depend on the physician’s way with words. This could hamper the reliability of the report. Secondly, with such technology, patient privacy is at stake. Although countries like the US and UK have strong medical data privacy regulations, especially in the case of data transmission, we still come across data breach instances. Such breaches can lead to healthcare fraud especially in the case of medical insurance.

Choosing the right EHR system that fits the needs of your organization can be challenging. Get in touch with an expert from Infiniti Research and learn how we help clients better understand organizational requirements and identify solutions that fulfill organizational needs effectively.

Managing data entry errors

One of the key advantages of electronic health records was believed to be its ability to reduce errors, misplacement, and oversights in healthcare records. Also, in many cases, the illegibility of physicians’ handwriting was found to be the cause of several errors. Although the introduction of electronic medical records has reduced instances of medical errors considerably, the chances of errors cannot be completely ruled out. Digitalization could also pave for new opportunities for medical error. Drug safety authorities have confirmed that human-computer interactions were responsible for over 50% of problems in laboratory testing. This could drastically hamper patient care by causing inconvenience, errors or delays in diagnosis. Although electronic health records systems are designed to alert clinicians in case of mistakes, often these alerts are shrugged off as a ‘computer error’ and this in some cases could prove to be fatal for patients. In order to reduce the risk of alert fatigue causing similar mistakes in the future, it is advisable to switch off the most frequently ignored alerts.

Building an Effective Remote Patient Monitoring Strategy

With the rising demand for healthcare services especially due to the growing incidence of chronic diseases among the aging population, there is unprecedented stress on primary care. Furthermore, the low nurse to patient ratio in hospitals as well as clinical setup are increasing strain on emergency care centers and assisted living centers. To tackle similar challenges, healthcare systems are considering to radically transform service delivery through remote patient monitoring services.

Remote patient monitoring (RPM), a technology that allows patients to be monitored outside traditional clinical settings, was relatively slow to be adopted by healthcare providers. A variety of technological and financial factors hindered the early adoption of remote patient monitoring systems. However, over the years, the remote patient monitoring market saw an increase in the number of patients being monitored remotely and the trend is expected to continue over the next decade as well. Whether your healthcare organization was an early adopter of RPM technology or you are just getting into the game, there remains a number of basic factors that must be considered to ensure your RPM efforts are financially and clinically successful. Based on our expertise in helping several remote patient monitoring service providers tackle key challenges, below are some key points to consider.

While implementing advanced healthcare technologies in your organization, it’s easy to overlook some key gaps in implementation. RFP to consult an expert from Infiniti Research and learn how we can help you with a flawless technology implementation strategy to suit your business needs.

remote patient monitoring

Remote patient monitoring in today’s healthcare scenario

Today, with pay-for-performance becoming mainstream, remote patient monitoring has now become imperative for providers of all kinds. However, this wasn’t the case a decade or two ago. But with the multitude of benefits that RPM brings with it including aiding better clinical outcomes, controlling healthcare costs, reducing admissions and readmissions, and improving overall access to healthcare are some of the main reasons why healthcare providers are increasingly making RPM devices available to their patients. In some cases, remote patient monitoring is used as a condition of long-term treatment, especially for those with chronic diseases.

Execution is more important than the technology

Remote patient monitoring services undoubtedly provide a host of benefits for healthcare providers and patients with chronic illness. But it is essential for healthcare providers to not get carried away by these lucrative advantages. Firstly, it must be ensured the organization is equipped with the necessary infrastructure, personnel, and work processes that are required to provide scalable RPM implementation that can exceed performance expectations. Prematurely rolling out remote patient monitoring strategies and initiatives can result in failure due to faltered back-end execution. This could in turn also hamper the organization’s reputation.

Conduct early due diligence

Leveraging the ample amount of available data and input on remote patient monitoring tools is more feasible than using pilot projects. As modern patients expect turnkey solutions from healthcare providers, organizations cannot expect patients to wait until they resolve the gaps in these pilot projects. A greater degree of patient and staff satisfaction can be ensured by rigorously conducting due diligence at the early stages, and ensuring that the remote patient monitoring system can be rolled out successfully.

Consider RPM as a cost containment strategy

A healthcare organization’s remote patient monitoring strategy should not ideally be dictated by an RPM vendor or be based on the deals on RPM technology. In order to be able to clearly visualize the merits and demerits of remote patient monitoring technologies, providers could consider the benefits of working with a healthcare consulting firm that is well-versed in this and can help in strategic allocation and implementation of the technology.

Benefits of healthcare market segmentation

healthcare market segmentationPatient engagement

Although a disease registry could provide data relating to patients suffering from a particular disease, it is not entirely necessary for these patients to be homogenous. Layering information about the behavior and attitudes of patients apart from the clinical information is one of the best ways to communicate and engage with several types of patients and improve the care provided.

Healthcare marketing

Not all consumers respond in the same way to a particular message. Gaining deeper knowledge about patient preferences through healthcare market segmentation can help determine the types of message and marketing communications that a particular group of healthcare consumers are more likely to respond to. As such, healthcare market segmentation can also prevent providers from spending unnecessarily on marketing initiatives that are less likely to strike a chord with their target audience.

By understanding your existing and potential customers in terms of distinct market segments, we can help you gain vital insights for promoting your products and services to each segment more effectively. Get in touch with our healthcare industry experts for more insights on our solutions.

Service distribution strategy

Digital Healthcare in Canada: What Needs to be Done to Enable Smooth Transition

Although Canadians are keen about implementing digital healthcare, their healthcare system lags behind. To drive improved healthcare outcomes, the Canadian government must focus on adopting healthcare innovations, customer-driven models, and a new regulatory framework that facilitates change and embraces digital healthcare.

What is digital healthcare services?

Digital healthcare services is a simple concept. It encompasses using technology to improve health and wellness of patients. Today, the term digital healthcare includes electronic health (health-related information, resources, and services provided electronically) as well as developing areas such as advanced computing science ( big data that can provide valuable insights into population health) and artificial intelligence (AI), wherein computer systems perform tasks that would normally require human capacities, such as decision-making. With new healthcare solutions constantly changing the way we live, it is fair to say that the future of healthcare is digital.

Adoption and use of digital healthcare technologies have the potential to make healthcare delivery more accessible, convenient, and cost-effective. Request a free proposal to know how your organization can enable a smooth transition to digital healthcare services.

Canada ranks among the lowest when compared to other OECD countries that have universal healthcare systems. Healthcare consumers becoming increasingly empowered by the volume and ease of access to healthcare information, even so, the current model for healthcare delivery remains unchanged fundamentally. A number of challenges will have to be addressed at the national, provincial, and territorial level in Canada to create an environment wherein the current model can incorporate digital healthcare tools. While the journey towards a fully patient and family-centric approach to healthcare will be long, there are some measures that governments could initiate in order to accelerate the process and implement digital healthcare more effectively.

Digital healthcareAdjust fees paid to physicians

The Canadian government must ensure that fair and adequate compensation is given to physicians for virtual consultations. Some provinces such as British Columbia and Alberta have implemented pilots of revised fee structures, albeit a pan-Canadian strategy is yet to be implemented for revised compensation. In such situations, if the physician billing structure has been modified in a particular province to allow virtual consultations, interprovincial licensing and regulations might restrict physicians from being able to employ these changes across provincial borders.

Partner with us to know how you can identify opportunities to make your healthcare system more patient-centric and improve accessibility. Get in touch with us to know more about how our solutions can help your healthcare organization.

Common strategy for adoption of healthcare innovation

A common nation-wide strategy must be adopted by the Canadian government to better implement innovations such as digital healthcare. By establishing incubators and accelerators, the government is currently encouraging and supporting an entrepreneurial culture in the business sector. By incorporating this as a part of a nationally designed vision for the future of healthcare, new solutions for healthcare can be encouraged. Healthcare strategy should largely revolve around the patient, their family, and the caregiver rather than on systems and institutions. A comprehensive analysis of the customer experience of healthcare companies will provide valuable insights into the opportunities of realizing efficiency through the application of digital healthcare solutions.

Policy framework for digital healthcare solutions

The federal and provincial governments in Canada should collaboratively design a policy framework for the effective adoption of secure digital healthcare solutions. Innovative healthcare technologies will ensure secure data oversight through cloud solutions and blockchain, consequently paving the way for shared policies and standards. Through this, providers will be able to take full advantage of the significant data generated by single-payer health care system. Moreover, this will also ensure that all Canadians can use their individual health data in partnership with their health professionals to identify personalized healthcare solutions.

Access to data

Large healthcare organizations usually have a greater number of EHR systems that are in use simultaneously. While some of these systems are built in-house, others may be hosted through EHR vendors. As every EHR has its own backend database, pulling information from all of them could prove to be a tedious and time consuming process. During such events, healthcare providers can turn to either an EHR conversion company to bring disparate data together and then leave it to the provider’s healthcare business intelligence team or leave the whole process of collecting information to a healthcare business intelligence company. Either way, the process will be handled by savvy businesses that are well-versed with EHR systems on the market, as well as their unique attributes.

High data sensitivity

Healthcare companies not only deal with financial and personal information of their patients’ but also record sensitive patient and clinical data regulated by the strict HIPAA rules. They require extra security while handling. When it comes to effectively managing data, healthcare providers must think through the strategy of managing access to confidential information, distributing roles, and ensure data security across all sources and data warehouses.

While the volume and value of healthcare data are breaking new ground, many payers and providers are struggling to keep up with the capabilities needed to support and deliver the basics. Get in touch with us to learn how you can up your game with a better healthcare business intelligence strategy.

Data quality
Healthcare data is often derived from different sources such as HER, ADT, and ERP. Also, this data is used by different departments in the healthcare organization including radiology, cardiology, pharmacy, and several others. The formats in which data is processed can also vary from videos and pictures to text or other multimedia. When all collected data finally gets processed, healthcare provides find a lot of data in their analytical system hasn’t been stored as structured, codified values. Instead, the healthcare business intelligence team faces tons of unstructured text information. Mapping these values and structuring them across systems to extract valuable insights is a resource-exhausting and time-intensive process.

Quality Improvement in Healthcare Using Business Intelligence

With the rising competition, the healthcare sector is transforming into a developed and complex marketplace. With the changing healthcare landscape across the globe, quality improvement in healthcare is garnering increased focus. Not only for the patients, but even for the forward-thinking healthcare companies, quality in healthcare has now become paramount. Although a lot of funding is going into training staff and procuring drugs and equipment in an effort to improve quality across healthcare facilities, we still find that many known clinical interventions are not reaching patients at the time they need it. This is one of the prime reasons why more and more healthcare companies are warming up to advanced techniques such as business intelligence in order to support performance improvement in healthcare services and ensure access to quality healthcare for patients. Healthcare providers can get the insight needed to reduce costs, increase revenue, and improve patient safety while remaining compliant with regulations by integrating business intelligence solutions.

Experts at Infiniti explains why every healthcare organization that emphasizes on quality improvement in healthcare processes must leverage business intelligence.

Business intelligence for quality improvement in healthcare

Accuracy in patients’ treatment history

Business intelligence solutions help merge all claims so that physicians are able to access them via EHR. This ensures that the data gathered is delivered flawlessly. It also enables the physician to see and understand each and every test and treatment that the patient has previously received, both at that facility and elsewhere, as well as any remaining tests that needs to be performed. Eliminating repeat tests helps save money and satisfies the patient who does not have to undergo repeat tests due to missing information. Through this the physician will be able to ensure quality improvement in healthcare treatment provided to the patient.

Personalized medication

With the help of business intelligence solutions, patient data becomes more accessible and analyzing patient data is now easier than ever before. As a result, treatment regimens are not required to follow the one-size-fits-all approach anymore. Rather, physicians provide superior quality in the healthcare treatment based on the patient’s past treatment record and current care requirements and enhance quality improvement in healthcare.

Prevention of certain diseases

Physicians can prevent diseases or at least help in reducing the impact of disease by analyzing genetic markers. By analyzing the data available through business intelligence, physicians can gain better insights into the patterns of determinants that have the ability to increase the patient’s risk of a particular disease. Such measures taken for prevention of disease can establish quality improvement in healthcare organizations.

Enhance healthcare logistics

By leveraging business intelligence tools to analyze patient throughput and enabling better decision-making on the population of the healthcare organization, hospitals can gain a comprehensive idea on the ideal discharge times. Consequently, they can make the best use of bed space without sacrificing patient outcome and promote quality improvement in healthcare. Furthermore, emergency and trauma patient cases can be more accurately prioritized and treated thus improving patient outcomes while minimizing costs by providing the right treatment at the right time.

Exploring Healthcare Investment Opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe

healthcare investment opportunity

The healthcare sector in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has been transitioning and showing positive signs of growth over the past two decades. This has largely been fueled by the reform of health services becoming a priority on the political agenda. As a result, CEE’s healthcare sector is rapidly emerging as an attractive healthcare investment destination for domestic and international investors alike. So, what are the key factors that are creating attractive healthcare investment opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe? To begin with, rapid demographic changes and rising disposable income across the region is resulting in increased government and individual spending on healthcare facilities. Furthermore, the highly fragmented healthcare market in Central and Eastern Europe provides investors with attractive healthcare investment opportunities such as pursuing a buy-and-build strategy in the region.

In this blog, experts at Infiniti explores the key factors fueling healthcare investment opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe.

Rising healthcare spend

Experts at Infiniti are of the opinion that at the current rate, CEE countries will soon grow leap and bounds in terms of healthcare investments. The healthcare investment opportunities created in the region through increased spending are attracting more and more investors each year. In Poland for instance, total healthcare spending including government and individual spend has surged by over 20% in the last two years. The healthcare spending in CEE regions are primarily increasing due to the aging population due to low fertility rates, emigration of younger population, and the rising life expectancy. Apart from this, the increasing demand for better and more expensive treatments are fueling demand and more healthcare investment opportunities in Central and Eastern European countries.

Scope of consolidation

The vast potential for consolidation in the region gives better healthcare investment opportunities in CEE. Unlike Western Europe, the ownership of healthcare companies in CEE is highly fragmented, giving plenty of opportunities for consolidation through buy and build strategies. In Western Europe, there are only a few dominant players with regional monopolies in the healthcare market. The rest are mostly dispersed independent family clinics. This means that in Western Europe, even if investors acquire some independent firms, it wouldn’t move the needle in terms of market share. On the other hand, in the case of CEE, buying few independent firms can make investors grow rapidly.

Healthcare companies will be required to develop new and different operating models in order to tap into new opportunities. Get in touch with our experts to know how we can help you stay updated with latest innovations and strategies for success in the European healthcare market.

Attractive healthcare sub-sectors

Some healthcare subsectors tend to attract and provide more healthcare investment opportunities than others. For example, biotechnology is one of the most attractive healthcare subsectors right now. This segment is expected to attract a significant amount of healthcare investment during the next 18 months. Furthermore, biotech companies are particularly attractive acquisition targets for larger pharmaceutical companies as they enable to accelerate the development of innovative products and new drugs. Due to the emergence of cluster across the region, Central and Eastern European regions are a highly fertile hunting ground for healthcare investors.

Final thoughts

Although the need for investment in medical infrastructure meets tight public budgets currently in CEE, healthcare innovations and public-private partnerships can play a vital role in improving the status quo. By adopting advanced healthcare technologies such as cancer screenings, electronic patient registries, improving patient mobility and accessibility to healthcare, and following practices like outcome-based reimbursement, healthcare providers in CEE can create a successful healthcare system and attract more healthcare investments.
