Today’s model of healthcare provision is becoming increasingly unsustainable

The healthcare industry handles an unsurprisingly large amount of data on a daily basis – patient records, test results, analyses, consent forms, research material, etc. Before computers were introduced into the workforce, healthcare workers had to keep track of all data on paper. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. Well, sort of.

It’s true that when you walk into most clinics or hospitals, your information (i.e., name, phone number, address) is entered and saved in their computer’s database. But what happens to your test results? Your doctor’s medical notes? Your medical history? Unfortunately, this data is still kept on paper in many healthcare institutions and not transferred to an easily accessible electronic database.

Challenge

Siloed technology stack

Outdated and inflexible legacy systems — which are especially difficult to integrate — aggravate the problem by preventing efficient data-sharing and creating data silos that isolate important patient information.

EACIIT Solution

Patient 360 view

Collating all of patient history at Physician’s desktop in a single window (EMR in OPD) and presenting SVOP (single view of patients) department and hospital wide

OUTCOME

Patient Centric approach

A 360° view of a patient allows healthcare providers to deliver proactive and individualized care that is cost-effective and high quality. 

Estimated cost

For 90 bed hospital

Starting from 75,000 SGD development cost with a 6 to 8 week prototyping period and another 4 weeks to productionize.

Alternative Solutions

Some Health Care focused systems

Basic packages which need an IT team to implement and setup. Longer time to production with no clear view on implementation cost and no integration of legacy system.

This is just one of many EACIIT solutions!

The healthcare system of the future will look very different, with a crucial change being the move to ‘consumer-centric’ healthcare, allowing citizens to have much more responsibility for managing their healthcare and that of their families.

Digital Health Care trends are Telemedicine, Artificial Intelligence to analyse scans, Blockchain for sharing medical history, data protection and security issues, AR to perform dangerous procedures and VR for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. Besides that there is the Digital Twin to test the impact of potential change on the performance of a healthcare procedure by experimenting on a virtual version of the system. 

It is estimated that the digital healthcare market will touch $206 billion by 2020. A recent study conducted by SAP and Oxford Economics concluded that while 70% healthcare companies are planning to digitalize operations, another 61% feel that digital transformation will increase patient satisfaction.
