The healthcare sector generates a massive volume of data every year, in the form of patient electronic health records (EHRs), administrative data, surveys and feedback, clinical trial data and more besides. And much of this comes from disparate sources which aren’t easy to consolidate, track and utilise with increasingly valuable data analytics. That's why the adoption of business intelligence in healthcare is now more relevant than ever.
Implementing business intelligence in healthcare can help medical organisations to centralise their data stores, share reports among different departments, improve data security and open up new analytical capabilities. This, in turn, can allow them to map performance indicator KPIs, improve the quality of their services and deliver better patient outcomes. So, more healthcare providers are now using expert healthcare software development services to enable an integrated, data-driven approach to caregiving, which delivers a smoother patient experience and builds a larger degree of trust between patient and clinician.
Use cases of business intelligence in healthcare
Here are myriad use cases for implementing business intelligence (BI) tools within your healthcare setting, but a few core areas are:
- Symptom-based treatment planning - intended to save time and get more patient throughput, thus freeing up clinicians from the task of manual planning.
- Patient volume-driven staff management - real-time analysis of hospital infection rates, readmissions and staff shortages can help healthcare practises plan ahead and more effectively manage resourcing.
- Alerting healthcare providers to what services patients need and thereby cutting repeat visits - clinical decision support (CDS) systems can help healthcare providers improve patient safety through various alerts covering things such as drug interactions and guidance on pharmaceutical dosing.
- Tracking and identifying those who require follow-up appointments - to enable better communication between clinicians and patients while reducing instances of missed or delayed diagnoses.
- Facility supply chain management - integrating data at key points in the supply chain can help healthcare organisations with procurement, sourcing and contracting, supply data management and value analysis.
With globalisation reaching its peak and e-commerce growing exponentially, boosted by the coronavirus pandemic, technology disruption within the logistics industry is now unparalleled. Here's a review of the key logistics and supply chain trends to help T&L leaders decide on their innovation strategy and what technologies to invest in.
Rapid shifts in business and social environments put increasing pressure on logistic companies, disrupting traditional operating models and raising new challenges. Some technologies and supply chain trends have lost their relevance while others are growing in popularity. Over the past few years, the industry has seen more transformational change than it has in perhaps the entire previous century. Always on and always connected, today's customer demands fast, integrated, and personalised experiences via diverse channels that comply with the latest personal safety requirements introduced by the pandemic.
To keep up with high volatility in supply and demand and remain resilient, businesses in logistics need to transform their operations and workflows. Companies will have to reconsider their business ecosystems and optimise all the essential processes and infrastructure, from warehouse automation and opening new parcel-delivery bases to developing delivery networks, integrating with third-party vendors, and adjusting their marketing and brand development activities. It's critical to ensure you have all the resources and skills in place, including software development expertise. Many enterprises partner with experienced providers of logistics software development services to facilitate and support this digital journey.
