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.
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.
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.
Healthcare Week at HIMSS AsiaPac14 was extraordinarily successful! – 1200 people attended from countries around the world, and 80% of attendees were there to evaluate new technologies.
What was clear from listening to the attendees is that data is going to be changing the healthcare landscape in a very dramatic way. Healthcare providers are going to need to be more aware of patients in context,
At MuleSoft, we’re fortunate to have the opportunity to work on one of the most meaningful challenges in integration: interoperability across healthcare IT systems. Whether it’s ensuring that doctors have the information they need to make an accurate diagnosis or verifying a patient’s prescription so that they have access to medication, integration is core to a functioning health care system (indeed integration is often the root cause when there are problems,
