Integration to Enable and Empower Innovation in the Clinical Space
Less than a decade ago the overwhelming majority of integration in healthcare was connecting two disparate systems at a transactional level. However, as we look to the future of healthcare, what is integration’s potential role and does it change? To answer the question let’s consider just some of the changes within the last five years and their impact to healthcare organizations: the emergence of new technologies, industry standards continued maturity, mandates at all levels of government, and reimbursement changes. This presentation should provide clinical and technical team members a way to look at integration at several different levels including culture, practices, processes and technical capabilities with a focus toward enablement and empowering innovation
The goal after attending this presentation is for attendees to be able to walk away with the ability to discuss, assess, analyze and understand their capabilities specific to the use of integration to empower and innovate.
