How Healthcare Operations Technology can solve Interoperability Challenges


In this episode of Becker's Healthcare Podcast, the Chief Product Officer of symplr, Brian Fugere and Vice President of Strategy and Product Management, Vijay Jayaraman discuss the interoperability challenges that healthcare faces, how it affects patients and clinicians, and how healthcare operations technology can be the answer.

The Challenge of Interoperability in Healthcare

The interoperability of healthcare systems has been a longstanding issue in the healthcare industry. Compared to other industries, healthcare has been lagging behind in this regard, and this has detrimental implications for patients and clinicians. One solution to this problem is having a unified group of applications as a fundamental backbone. This can help reduce the administrative burden on healthcare staff and streamline operations.

The Focus on Healthcare Operations

The pandemic has expedited the need for a focus on healthcare operations. Healthcare leaders are making investments into software solutions to improve communication and streamline operations. The conversations are now more focused on real issues, and less on fluff. Healthcare vendors now need to work with customers to create standards-based interoperability solutions that will help make operations more efficient. Companies should be discussing the operational aspects of healthcare more often, as this is where the rubber meets the road.

The Future of Healthcare Technology

As healthcare operations gain more attention, it is clear that software solutions are a vital part of healthcare's future. The use of these solutions can improve communication, streamline operations, and ultimately improve the quality of care delivered to patients. It is important that healthcare vendors continue to work with customers to develop more robust and efficient solutions, and for healthcare leaders to invest in these solutions to ensure that their organizations remain competitive.
