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!
Imagine having the ability to detect cancerous tissue within 10 seconds via a pen-shaped device, or the ability to receive an organ donation on-demand via a 3D printer. These scenarios are becoming a reality, as the frontend of healthcare technology brims with possibility.
A recent study from Johns Hopkins University examined the top causes of death in the U.S. What did researchers determine is the No. 3 cause of death in the U.S.? Is it cancer, heart disease? No — it is medical errors.
It is estimated that over 250,000 Americans die each year due to medical errors––from surgical mix-ups and paperwork errors to inaccurate doses and sudden infections.
At MuleSoft, we work with a number of hospitals, healthcare systems, insurers, and other healthcare organizations. These organizations use different computer systems–from billing and Electronic Health Records (EHRs) to laboratory and pharmaceutical management systems. A common and critical use case that we come across is how we can enable these organizations and their partners to seamlessly exchange data with one another across different systems.
I’m proud to be part of a company that works with leading hospitals including UCSF, Mount Sinai, and many others who are on the forefront of innovation in healthcare. But at its core, while some hospitals have embraced transformation, most remain stuck in the past, and here’s why.
Drug prices for Americans under 65 are projected to rise more than 11% in 2017. For consumers and health insurance companies, this is a real challenge as prescription drugs account for 10% of all healthcare spending in the United States. In an increasingly competitive landscape, where consumers can compare and choose cheaper drugs and where insurers want to pay less, pharmaceutical companies are feeling pressure to drive down costs.
IT is at the center of many initiatives designed to reduce the cost of developing and bringing new drugs to market,
In our most recent Connectivity Benchmark Report, we surveyed over 951 IT decision makers (ITDMs), and approximately 90% of healthcare IT leaders ranked the adoption of cloud technologies as an “important,” “very important,” or “extremely important” priority for 2017. Why is this so important to the healthcare industry? The typical drivers for cloud adoption (cost savings, better application scalability) are a factor, but there are also industry-specific drivers that have created a sense of urgency around healthcare organizations moving to the cloud.
Market, technology and legislative trends have created digital transformation needs across industry verticals. The mandate for digital transformation is clear – the question that IT leaders must answer is not “If“, but “How?“
At MuleSoft, we believe that connectivity is a core to answering that question. True transformation comes not from the implementation of any single technology – not from SaaS, Mobile, IoT or Big Data in and of itself – but rather from bringing multiple technologies together to create truly distinctive and compelling customer experiences.
