In our world of medical device integration, healthcare facilities want to not only send their device data to their EMR, but also deliver select elements of that data to other clinical, analytic, and operational systems and applications. The ability to simultaneously supply this data to multiple systems not only enhances the value of the data, but also helps break down data silos to provide critical and timely information for decision making where and when it’s needed.

So, today, even beyond medical device integration, the often-discreet realms in information technology find themselves on an accelerating path to convergence … to creating new, integrated data domains. In this emerging environment, healthcare professionals expect unparalleled access to data and content. To meet this expectation, IT industry players must now broaden their view and collaborate with other systems, technologies, and vendors to meet the markets’ growing expectations to do more with their data tomorrow than they are able to do today. Collaboration can be extraordinarily powerful, especially when new pathways are found through the energy and imagination generated by the sharing of ideas and knowledge. Never before have we seen these kinds of opportunities and challenges to enhance and create new solutions in a world of intelligent new devices and technologies.

The question, then, is how do we, whether we be healthcare practitioner or providers of information technologies choose to innovate … connect … integrate… to converge technology and data and collaborate for the betterment of patient care.

We want your feedback
