Businesses across every industry have faced unparalleled disruption to their operations as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. In the retail sector, we’ve seen shelves across the globe being repeatedly stripped bare, as supply chains that simply weren’t geared-up to deal with such sudden and dramatic changes in buying behavior have struggled to keep up.
COVID-19 has overwhelmed governments and healthcare resources around the world. This crisis underscores the importance of interoperability — the ability for clinical and non-clinical health IT systems to talk to each other, exchange data, and make use of key information. I’ve spent years advocating the importance of interoperability with CIOs across healthcare providers, payers, and government agencies.
Salesforce named a Leader in Healthcare CRM evaluation
As we continue to digest the final rules from CMS and ONC regarding wide-scale interoperability in healthcare, we’re excited to share some recent news from Forrester: Salesforce Health Cloud has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Healthcare CRM Providers, Q12020, with MuleSoft recognized for its interoperability capabilities!
According to MuleSoft’s 2020 Connectivity Benchmark Report, the financial services sector has a greater prevalence of teams driving sharing and a higher likelihood of API use, making it more primed for integration compared to other sectors.
The report also points out that improvements can still be made with only 44% of financial service respondents reporting that their organization provides a completely connected user experience, and 54% admitting it’s difficult to achieve.
Managing complexity is at the heart of supply chain strategy. Whether it’s in logistics, planning, procurement, or warehousing, supply chains provide firms with a competitive advantage by adding intricate, automated, or resource-heavy capabilities that can’t be easily replicated.
There has arguably never been a more optimistic time for interoperability in healthcare. The possibility of fully unlocking clinical data touches everything — from reducing costs and improving outcomes to powering telehealth and bringing house calls into the digital age to enabling the next generation of cancer care.
But barriers still remain to achieving interoperability that must be overcome. Below we share the vision we co-announced last summer at the White House for achieving true interoperability and driving transformation in healthcare.
It’s time for businesses to revamp their legacy experiences with a digital experience layer. Organizations must move away from a ‘system-centric’ to a ‘domain-driven’ view, where the domains provide a unified view across the business and abstract from the legacy systems.
In light of the digital transformation imperative, IT has taken center stage as a key enabling function supporting the survival and growth of the modern energy and utilities provider. New technologies and tools support anytime, anywhere access of data, real-time processing, and increasingly rich analytics functionality. As executives and line-of-business owners increase the pressure on IT teams to deliver these new capabilities to support strategic business objectives, demands on IT have exceeded IT delivery capacity.
For many years, communication service providers have struggled to transform their IT architecture and landscapes that have grown over the last two decades. Most of them are facing the legacy challenges of monolithic BSS/OSS stacks compounded as the tech stacks differ for each line of business, as past acquisitions were never integrated.
