TOP 5 Digital Acceleration Challenges (and Solutions) Across the Digital Healthcare Landscape

In the ever-evolving world of healthcare, digital transformation has become a necessity rather than a luxury.

Electronic Health Records (EHR) have revolutionized how patient information is stored and accessed, leading to improved efficiency and better patient care. However, navigating the complexities of EHR innovation while ensuring compliance can feel like walking a tightrope. Healthcare providers must consider this balancing act and incorporate best practices outlined by preeminent consultative and partner organizations such as Involta

2. Navigating Complexities of Digital Transformation and Acceleration 

Best Practice: Streamline technology to create a transparent and frictionless experience.   

The healthcare industry faces increasing pressure to embrace and accelerate digital transformation for several reasons. Primarily, it enhances patient care by enabling seamless access to patient records, promoting collaboration among healthcare providers and improving diagnostic accuracy. Digital transformation can also streamline administrative processes, reduce costs and increase operational efficiency. Lastly, staying ahead of technological advancements ensures that healthcare organizations remain competitive in a rapidly evolving landscape.

To successfully embrace digital acceleration, healthcare organizations should strive for transparent and frictionless technology by adopting systems that seamlessly integrate into existing workflows and are intuitive for users. Implementing user-friendly interfaces and providing adequate training and support allows healthcare organizations to minimize disruption and resistance to change. Transparent technology empowers healthcare professionals to focus on what matters most: delivering high-quality patient care.

3. Improving the Service Level Agreement (SLA) 

Best Practice: Improve SLAs to enhance patient satisfaction through easier access and a better adoption perspective. 

SLAs ensure reliable and consistent digital infrastructure performance. Improved SLAs translate into more straightforward access to patient information and better adoption rates among healthcare providers, ultimately leading to increased patient satisfaction.

Healthcare organizations should prioritize investing in robust, reliable technology solutions to enhance SLAs. These solutions should provide uninterrupted access to patient data, minimize downtime and offer prompt technical support. Improved SLAs enable healthcare providers to access critical information when needed, leading to more informed decision-making and improved patient care and satisfaction.

Involta recognizes the importance of SLAs and their impact on healthcare organizations. By providing clear SLAs and delivering exceptional performance, Involta ensures that its clients can focus on delivering high-quality care.

4. Managing the Complexities of Technology 

Best Practice: Simplify technology to achieve predictability, seamlessness and a stronger focus on healthcare.

Reliability, predictability and scalability are essential factors for healthcare organizations embarking on digital transformation journeys. Unreliable technology can impede patient care, disrupt workflows and result in frustration for both staff and patients.

Healthcare organizations can enhance their technology infrastructure by simplifying it, ensuring predictability and smooth operations. By streamlining processes and adopting reliable systems, healthcare organizations can focus on delivering high-quality care rather than troubleshooting technical issues. Predictability leads to consistent performance, while scalability allows organizations to adapt and grow as needed.

Healthcare organizations can rely on Involta to navigate the complexities of hosting and ensure consistent and dependable technology infrastructure. By partnering with Involta, healthcare organizations can concentrate on their primary mission of delivering exceptional patient care.

5. Overcoming the Migration/Transition Dilemma

Best Practice: Adopt a top-down strategy while embracing opportunistic and bottom-up execution during the migration process.

Transitioning from legacy systems to new technology can be daunting. It requires careful planning, execution and consideration of the organization's current and future needs.

When approaching migration or transition, healthcare organizations should adopt a strategic mindset that considers the organization's current state (Now), short-term goals (Near), and long-term vision (Far). While the strategy is developed top-down, the execution should be opportunistic and adaptable, addressing immediate needs and opportunities as they arise.

Involta understands that healthcare organizations have diverse needs and varying stages of digital transformation, and they have the expertise and capabilities to meet clients anywhere in their journey. Whether healthcare organizations require assistance with migration planning, execution or ongoing support, Involta can provide guidance and solutions.
