The Vision for connected healthcare - Part 1

This lecture will br given by Mr. Ziv Ofek from DbMotion.
The medical world is evolving at an astounding rate. For the last two decades, health information technology has played a significant and growing role in this progress, providing a wide spectrum of solutions and improved functionality: EMRs, PACS, HIS, finance, administration & registration, workflow management and more. However, the healthcare industry has lagged behind other industries on the use and implementation of innovative software solutions.
Although healthcare organizations, and the market in general, have heavily invested over the years in healthcare IT, many challenges have yet to be addressed. The cost of healthcare is constantly rising; medical errors are at a critical level, healthcare systems are often riddled with inefficiencies and improved productivity is a constant challenge.
Recognizing the power of information systems to drive and enable healthcare transformation, and today’s corresponding lack of proven and effective systems able to fully deliver the desired benefits and drive this badly needed transformation, lead to the mandate for a new paradigm when patient information can be aggregated (data), integrated (information), understood and enriched by semantics (knowledge) and delivered as actionable patient information (wisdom) – transformational solutions can be introduced in multiple areas of healthcare.
The two-parts lecture will outline some of the major challenges the healthcare industry faces today and some new innovative paradigms (and solutions) that might address some of these challegnes.
