The major disruption event of the century is COVID-19. It has changed overnight the way we live our lives, and even today, we are still slowly trying to come to terms with restrictions it has imposed on our lives. But what the pandemic has forced healthcare organisations to do was to adopt digital transformation faster.
Technology foundations for the healthcare sector include mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), Web 3.0, PaaS/SaaS, Big Data and Unified Communications. The coming decade will see an influx of increasing adoption of these systems and tools to significantly boost healthcare services. From patient record accessibility and facilitating healthcare teams’ interaction with patients to responding to emergency cases, all these will be done with innovative technology. This is the start of Digital Transformation.

There is a New Digital Reality for Healthcare Organisations

What Digital Transformation Promises

The major disruption event of the century is COVID-19. It has impacted the way we live our lives, and we are still slowly coming to terms with the restrictions it has imposed on us. The pandemic has pushed us into finding new ways to go about work and our daily routines, with the healthcare sector bearing the brunt of those changes. Healthcare organizations have had to adapt to address the mounting number of patients in their care, and one major way they have done so is through digital transformation.

Technology foundations for the healthcare sector include mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), Web 3.0, PaaS/SaaS, Big Data, and Unified Communications. The coming decade will see an influx of increasing incorporation of these systems and tools to boost healthcare services. From patient record accessibility, facilitating healthcare teams’ interaction with patients, to responding to emergency cases, all these will be done with innovative technology. This is the start of Digital Transformation.

This is the promise of digital transformation

Digital transformation is geared toward effectively automating operations while reducing costs and improving patient service and care quality. The goal of healthcare organizations now is to leverage Big Data management, mobility, IoT, and UC in order to enhance service-delivery chains starting with diagnosis all the way to post-care. The processes involved will no longer be manual and laborious—everything is envisioned to be automated and efficient.
At present, this is taking place for early adopters of digital technology in the healthcare space, and the results are astounding. The agility brought about by the application of such technology is one major transformational effect that’s been pivotal to the work of healthcare practitioners and organizations’ delivery of quality services. The digitization of healthcare has also streamlined processes that once required a whole lot of paperwork and waiting. However, it is not without its challenges. The myriad of technology reliant tools and platforms are pushing networks, servers, and databases to their limits. Information Technology (IT) professionals in the healthcare industry have ranked the top three major issues they’re facing:

To effectively transform operations while reducing costs, yet improving patient service and care quality. The goal of healthcare organisations now is to leverage Big Data management, mobility, IoT and UC in order to enhance service-delivery chain starting with diagnosis all the way to post-care. The processes involved will no longer be manual and laborious—everything is envisioned to be automated, hence efficient.

Even now, this is taking place at this very moment for early-adopters of technology in the healthcare space, and the results are astounding. Agility is a major transformational element that’s pivotal to healthcare practitioners and organisations delivery of quality services.

It is not without challenge, though. The myriad of technology reliant tools and platforms are pushing networks, servers and databases to its limits. These digital services are vital links in the healthcare service-delivery chain. IT professionals in the healthcare industry have ranked the top three major issues they’re facing:

Stakeholders Demand: Better Patient Care Experience

doctor and patient
Patients today demand a more personalized approach to health services, as well as accuracy in diagnosis and cost-effective disease prevention information. Patients are no longer content to be passive recipients of healthcare services—they are now value-aware consumers. To achieve these standards, healthcare services must be underscored by reliable backend record-keeping and billing tools. Digital tools have been put in place in order to achieve this.
The trend is clearly visible now in the form of adoption of IoT in the wearables market. More people are using fitness trackers to track their biological stats and fitness. In fact, in the United States of America (USA.), an estimated 63 million people use fitness wearable devices daily.

Patients today demand a more personalised approach to health services, as well as accuracy in diagonoses, and cost-effective disease prevention information. And, these, too, must be underscored by reliable backend record-keeping and billing tools. Digital tools have been put in place in order to achieve this. Patients are no longer content to be passive recipients of healthcare services—they are now value-aware consumers. Patients are taking their health into their own hands—figuratively and literally. Again, with the help of digital transformation.
The trend is clearly visible now in the form of adoption of IoT in the wearables market. More and more people are using fitness trackers to, well, track health and fitness; in fact, in the US alone, an estimated 63 million people use fitness wearable devices daily.
