Veera Gopalakrishnan, a System Integration Engineer, and Swarnim Ranjitkar, a Sr. Software Engineer, at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) both have more than five years of MuleSoft experience. Veera presented a UCSF and MuleSoft use case during our Developer Meetup at MuleSoft CONNECT Digital Americas.

In this time of tremendous global change, an emphasis has been put on digital businesses and the need for transformation. As social distancing and shelter-in-place orders have become the norm, it’s clear that we are experiencing a paradigm shift.

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.

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.
