Over the past few years, the growth and implementation of electronic medical records and related clinical applications clearly show the importance of IT in the healthcare industry. Healthcare providers continuously work to improve quality of care and reduce operational costs, and are searching high and low for a solution that will help them do this.
The sheer volume of healthcare data available to practitioners can often feel more overwhelming than helpful. Data streams into your hospital at rapid pace, and everything from patient satisfaction surveys, staff schedules and medical equipment tracking to medical device outputs and disparate EMR systems piles up and starts gathering virtual dust on your servers. So how do you regain control, and move forward to improve the quality of care you provide, whilst still remaining cost effective?
Electronic health records (EHRs) offer plenty of data, including diagnoses, test results, emergency room visits, prescriptions, demographic information and information about previous hospitalizations. This data is incredibly valuable, but it's far too much for doctors and nurses to trawl through manually.
The clinical language is large and full of regional terms and phrases. In some cases, the same term can have different meanings or there can be several meanings associated with one term, depending on the context in which the doctor records it.
Some large healthcare organizations operate in multiple countries or parts of the world and need information to be presented in the local language to ensure every user in every country is catered for.
