Health care organizations have received appreciable support from the digital disruptive environment in their quest to deliver value based care as opposed to volume based care.
Digital health care has transformed the way organizations store their patient data, exchange data on-the-go and secure sensitive data. Health care organizations differ in terms of their information storage needs, and the amount and type of data which needs to be stored. Data storage is also dependent on regulatory requirements which an organization must follow.
In this context, more and more care delivery settings realize that in order to succeed, they must view patients as central to their focus rather than as mere stakeholders.
A transition from an organization-centric to a patient-centric approach for storing and handling health data involves efforts at multiple stages, from defragmenting broken silos pf patient data to exchanging meaningful health data through Health Information Exchanges (HIE).
