Impact of IT on Healthcare Services

Healthcare IT

 

Healthcare industry has only seen single digit growth for a long time in terms of investment in Information Technology. It has always been lagging behind other industries as per an article I read on Datamonitor.  There have been reports of fatality by medical errors and hence the move towards IT which in one way has helped Medical institutions reduce medical errors. There has also been government involvement in promoting Healthcare IT by setting standards in data interchange such as HIPAA, HL7 etc. and patient safety goals.

 

As per a global market research and information analysis organizations the healthcare industry is to grow by 24% in the next two years.  The underpinning driving force of the growth is not only healthcare reforms and the implementation of e-health systems, but also by people who will demand quality services.

 

According to Nortel, Healthcare is expected to be impacted by a few Key Technology benefits namely,

 
  1. Frequently updated Electronic clinical Records will allow Medical staff to check the new prescription against a patients existing drugs and allergies there by reducing chance of errors
  2.  
  3. An intelligent patient and equipment tracking mechanism along with location tracking will help in notifying staff about patient needs better. Equipment tracking using technologies like RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) will help easy tracking of various apparatus within a healthcare facility
  4.  
  5. Networking of location specific hospitals in such a way that all hospitals and patient data is available and stored securely in multiple sites. This will help in reducing risk during a natural disaster
  6.  
  7. Primary healthcare centres can be connected with hospitals and Ambulatory centres along with other healthcare facilities like clinics, doctor offices, home care services, hospice centres to provide quality care to patients outside hospitals.
  8.  

The above bodes well for the IT solutions companies that provide for the Healthcare sector be it a ready-made solution, bespoke or custom made solutions to suit the needs of healthcare institutions. However, these solutions providers have to ensure that they know and understand the government regulations so that their Software Applications comply with them.
