The continuous advancements in new technologies like AI and machine learning along with integrated systems are enabling automated and intelligent enterprises. This way, it becomes easier and quicker to make accurate decisions and sometimes even taking life-saving actions.
Today with the rapid rise of cloud technologies companies have become more agile and efficient. With numerous systems within organisations, more data silos got created increasing the complexity of IT infrastructures. To eliminate bottlenecks in order to access information quickly, integration of on-premise and cloud systems is playing a vital role.
Especially in the healthcare and pharma industries, this vitality is quite literal. The seamless connectivity of systems allows healthcare providers to have a complete view of patient histories and medical information to provide the best medical care to the patients at each touchpoint. This also prevents misdiagnosis or mistreatment due to lack of information. In the case of pharmaceuticals, the seamless data and application integration across the organisation can allow companies to deliver new drugs and vaccines to the public rapidly.
We have witnessed the best practices of integration within healthcare and pharma during the past year with the COVID-19 vaccine developments. In an integrated enterprise, employees and external stakeholders are empowered to make data-driven decisions; they can then review, improve and approve clinical trials quicker. With optimised operational efficiency in production and distribution, drugs and vaccines can be made available to the public in a shorter amount of time without compromising product quality.
Additionally, patients want to be informed about every step of their doctor or hospital visits next to transparent access to their healthcare data. So, it makes providing high-quality healthcare no longer enough. Organisations are expected to involve and collaborate with patients throughout their care journey. The data on patient’s medical history as well as their experiences with healthcare can be used to offer them a better healthcare service and experience overall.
