It is no secret that the Healthcare Industry is trying to find ways to digitalize their processes. In a recent article on HITECHAnswers entitled, "Healthcare Collaborative Partners Pool Resources to Develop Big Data Platform," we learn that the Data Alliance Collaborative has been launched. This alliance has been brought together with the purpose of finding a way to get healthcare providers the data analysis and business intelligence they need. Clearly the healthcare management solutions today are not providing enough business intelligence or data analysis. The article cites that the current EMRs are not offering proficient enough technologies to allow financial and operational data to be shared across individual hospitals.
In addition to the formation of this Data Alliance Collaborative, GE Healthcare has released that they plan to "invest $2 billion over five years to support innovation in health IT that improves the productivity of clinicians and operations of healthcare systems." The full article can be found here. Clearly GE Healthcare feels the same way as those who founded the DAC. The time is now to start finding innovative ways to provide your healthcare business with the necessary IT solutions.
