Community hospitals often face simultaneous challenges, such as pressure to improve clinical care outcomes, empower patients, and streamline organizational inefficiencies while finding effective ways to reduce overhead costs.
But what you might not realize is that each of these challenges shares a common denominator: data integration.
Data integration is an even larger issue for community hospitals without the resources to tackle mountains of data, much less the capability to securely manage data integrations in the face of expanding regulations.
MEDHOST sees firsthand how the proliferation of healthcare consumer data is changing the business of providing care. In response to this rapid evolution in healthcare information technology, we have built data integration solutions specifically designed to help lighten the heavy data load for our community hospital partners.
Though the idea of a seamless data integration service isn’t new, the volume of data within the healthcare industry has seen tremendous growth. In 2018, research from the International Data Corporation (IDC) revealed that healthcare data grew faster than other major sectors like manufacturing, finance, and media.
All this underscores a critical problem facing community providers: the ability to exchange massive amounts of data across multiple, usually disparate, sources and formats.
While the task of data integration management may sound like a disruptive complication, industry leaders consistently underscore its promise and value. For instance, the McKinsey Global Institute states that in addition to improving clinical outcomes and patient experiences, the benefits of enhanced data integrations and data intelligence can extend throughout every stage of care coordination.
To help address the challenges and realize the financial and operational rewards of data integration, hospitals and healthcare organizations should consider the merits of outsourcing a holistic service led by a team of seasoned experts.
An integration management solution has the power to transform any healthcare enterprise significantly, but it’s not hard to imagine how the expected benefits might translate into your day-to-day operations.
Whether it is difficulty managing your systems’ data integrations or ensuring data integrity in transit between systems, MEDHOST’s integration management solution can help you:
MEDHOST Managed Integration Services (MMIS) is an end-to-end integration engine and management solution for communicating electronic data securely and efficiently between your EHR, clinics, state registries, health information exchanges, Point of Care (POC) devices, and third-party vendors. Think of MMIS as a router that sits outside your EHR landscape, capable of managing all your organization’s point-to-point interfaces by funneling all of that data from your EHR to a service that works your interfaces with downstream vendors.
