Patient Experiences Heavily Influenced by Healthcare Data Interoperability, Finds Google
Google, in collaboration with Harris Poll, has revealed its findings of healthcare data interoperability. According to the latest report, physicians fully understand the importance of healthcare data interoperability and how this positively impacts patient experiences and outcomes. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has already laid down rule and policies to ensure transparent interoperability and patient access to critical healthcare data. New technologies such as Cloud, Big Data, AI, AR VR, Voice and Automation are considered key to sustaining next-gen applications in healthcare industry.
Here’s what Google’s report found out:
- Healthcare Data interoperability is top priority. If it’s not yet, then physicians would lose the opportunity to avail of benefits.
- 86% of the physicians think that the data interoperability would reduce the time to diagnosis.
- 95% say this would smoothen the patient experiences and almost a similar percentage (96%) find easier access to data could save lives.
- Healthcare data interoperability could help quickly identify high-risk patients, and intelligently inform physicians to recommend better treatments.
- 9 out of 10 physicians say data synchronization is important in delivering critical care coordination, an important factor when it comes to providing more personalized care.
Data is collected from various sources, and this could derail the ability of healthcare platforms to deliver best possible care and experience. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the role of healthcare data is critical.
Currently, Google Cloud offers high-end collaboration to healthcare and life science organizations through the Google Cloud Healthcare Interoperability Readiness Program. Google Cloud provides seamless data interoperability journeys and ultimately help save patient lives.
