How Leaning Into Technology Can Solve Healthcare’s Challenges
Technology & data silos reported as most common problems for healthcare providers
Healthcare providers across the country find themselves in a challenging position as they face staffing shortages, battle inflation costs, and manage disparate data. The only clear solution to these problems seems to be the implementation of technology, which has long been a common source of apprehension in the industry.
The results of a recent KLAS survey indicate healthcare provider organizations find technology and data silos to be the most common problems they face with all respondents reporting a lack of confidence in tackling these issues.
What makes technology adoption difficult in healthcare?
According to KLAS survey respondents, technology adoption can be difficult to implement due to:
- A lack of true interoperability
- Poor integration
- Poor scalability of disparate point solutions
These problems ultimately further exacerbate staff burnout and contribute to problems with training and retaining talent.
Healthcare organizations must adapt & collaboration is key to the innovation
In order to meet society’s ever-changing needs, it is imperative that healthcare organizations adapt, but these large complex systems involve the interplay of various components, which poses issues on flexibility to change.
The culture of an organization’s environment also dictates how certain ideas and thoughts are received, processed, and executed by employees. Collaboration is key to innovation and team members are more likely to buy-in to change if they feel their concerns and ideas are heard by leadership.
Technology that brings true interoperability and trusted integration
Once a collaborative culture of innovation and excitement for the implementation of technology has been fostered in an organization, solutions like those from Vyne MedicalⓇ have the potential to address provider’s concerns and difficulties while revolutionizing healthcare. These products create true interoperability and cohesive technological infrastructure through software integrations that capture, automate, manage, and exchange critical communications and interactions with patients, payers, and providers.
Vyne Medical’s TraceⓇ platform is a digital repository that houses communication events in the form of faxes, voice recordings, and document images. The system may work as a standalone or integrate with other systems as interactions are assigned to the individual patient record thereby enabling coordinated care and documentation to help ensure proper reimbursement.
The real value of Trace, however, comes from its ability to integrate this information with other systems thereby helping to ensure that right information is available to the right resources at the right time. With a goal to bridge the gap between healthcare’s systems, Vyne Medical offers HL7, export, import, and custom integrations.
Solutions that adapt to the changing needs & demands of the industry
With the integration of appropriate technologies like automation, team members save time by reducing manual entries which can help address staff burnout issues. In an article for Medical Economics, Jerod Richards, MD, a 44-year-old primary care physician with Village Medical in Plano, Texas stated that “technology can help alleviate some of the administrative hassles that can lead to burnout” further explaining that “technology is here to stay [as] younger physicians won’t even know a time without it.” Not only can the adoption of the latest technologies lessen the burden on overworked staff, but it can also help healthcare systems attract and retain talent, especially new recruits and professionals that value the transformational power of technology in healthcare.
