We are planning an exciting presence at Dreamforce this year, with great sessions, relevant speakers, and cool demos. We are particularly excited about a demo built by MuleSoft product manager Anton Kravchenko that jumpstarts the development of common healthcare applications around systems like, Epic, Fitbit and Salesforce Health Cloud.

Reducing cost, gaining efficiency, improving health outcomes

Introducing Catalyst Accelerate for Healthcare

Let’s face it – integration isn’t easy in healthcare. EHRs are notoriously thorny to work with. HIPAA regulations require security and governance controls to be put in place when data moves between systems. And while many technologies underlying digital transformation have enabled hospitals to engage with their patients in innovative ways, these technologies have dramatically increased the number of endpoints to connect to.

Over the years, MuleSoft has built a number of solutions to help hospitals,

B2B challenges in healthcare

It’s no secret that paying for healthcare in the United States is extremely difficult to do. Payment systems for healthcare across the country are highly fragmented; many payers and providers use multiple formats for remittance. This creates challenges and frustration for patients, providers, and insurance companies, particularly at a time when there is increased pressure to reduce costs. Other industries use B2B automation processes in standard languages like EDI to standardize and automate payment systems;

Why healthcare systems are failing doctors and patients: they’re in the dark

Imagine you’re a skier with a history of injuries. You fall one winter but the only consequence is a sore head and a warning to avoid concussion; the next winter you fall and lose consciousness, and your doctors have no idea about your medical history nor the doctor’s report from just a year ago. Plus, the medical equipment they’re using isn’t connected to any system, so they have to keep entering your information in their computers,

Announcing solutions that will transform healthcare

We are excited to announce healthcare initiatives that will have a profound effect on the way patients and medical professionals interact. The first of the vertical initiatives is being launched at HIMSS this year with MuleSoft’s new Solution for Epic EMR Integration and its inaugural Healthcare Product Advisory Board.

MuleSoft’s Solution for Epic EMR Integration allows healthcare organizations to accelerate development of applications that are external to Epic,

The future of healthcare innovation

APIs are often considered the “invisible warriors of healthcare.” And as our founder Ross Mason points out in TechBeacon, there are lots of examples of how APIs are transforming healthcare. But could APIs push healthcare innovation even further?

Big strides have been made already. UCSF has rolled out the CareWeb Messenger engagement platform, which allows healthcare professionals and patients to securely communicate online and on mobile devices in real time through APIs.

Let APIs change your relationship with your doctor

One of the most challenging aspects of modern medicine is managing the care of the chronically ill. In 2010, according to the US Centers for Disease Control, 86 percent of all healthcare spending in the US went towards conditions like heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and obesity; cancer care alone cost $157 billion. The costs come when these conditions manifest themselves in crises which require expensive hospital stays and costly medication. It would be cheaper and easier to manage these conditions on an ongoing basis,

HIMSS ’15: Reframing how healthcare is delivered

motif

Technology is disrupting industries, and no more so than in Healthcare where wearables, devices and the Internet of Everything (IoE) more broadly, provide the means to reframe how healthcare is delivered. These technologies are bringing hardware and software together to enable the provision of data, to both healthcare professionals and patients, and ultimately to enable better clinical decision making.

Delivering distinct solutions
