Healthcare facilities have come under increased spotlight in recent months as they play a vital role in managing this period of health crisis.
While poor working conditions have often been highlighted in recent years, these sectors can now count on digital tools to help improve the hospital chain. We will see in this article how digital transformation responds to the problems of the sector, by playing an important role in improving the stages of the patient and/or resident journey.
What are the challenges of a digital transformation in healthcare?
To provide a solution to medical deserts, hospital overcrowding, hospital discharges but also to meet the profitability challenges of private establishments such as clinics and nursing homes, many technologies have emerged.
Their common objective is to make life easier for both professionals and patients, without replacing the role of the medical profession.
Thus, these solutions will make it possible to:
- Bringing caregivers and patients together
- Enabling access to healthcare for as many people as possible
- Improving care
- Foster collaboration between departments
- Create common knowledge bases
- Limit social spending and achieve a financial balance capable of maintaining the current healthcare system
We will mention below some actors, carriers of existing technologies that meet the challenges of digital transformation.
Digital to streamline, coordinate and secure
The principle of digitization of health is based on the ability of these new tools to have a positive impact on the flows, coordination and safety of the care pathway.
Thus the development of e-reservation and telemedicine solutions are intended to contribute to relieving congestion in the hospital while optimizing the movement of patients who can access quality care regardless of their place of residence.
Real-time hospitalization mapping applications improve monitoring and care, as well as better responsiveness of the medical profession for easier collaboration between departments and experts.
Other tools will make it possible to mobilize and coordinate the various actors (pharmacy, ambulances, nurses, carer, physiotherapist, attending physician, speech therapist, etc.) for care at the patient's home.
All of these tools will result in a significant reduction in healthcare costs .
