Prediction: Forgotten Physicians Continue To Struggle In 2018

The future is bright for health IT in 2018 - unless you’re one of the many physicians who have grown deeply disillusioned with ever-changing healthcare policies, unfriendly technology, and an overwhelming number of administrative tasks – all of which interfere with the ability of clinicians to focus on the delivery of medicine.

Practitioners aim to discover health related anomalies in their earliest stages of development in order to treat them quickly before they become life threatening and catastrophic. If we were to extend this principle to the digital services doctors and clinical staff need and use in treating patients, wouldn’t it also make sense to monitor and analyse the application services and underlying networks to stay ahead of slowdowns that could wreak havoc throughout the patient care delivery network?

    The True ROI Of SSO And VDI

    To protect PHI, healthcare organizations often build a system of usernames and complex passwords. But why are we still relying on usernames and passwords when solutions such as single sign-on (SSO) have a measurable benefit of giving time back to clinicians, which is everything in healthcare. That time saved –amounting to hours per week – can now be spent with patients, increasing both patient and clinician satisfaction.
