Applying The Concept Of Preventative Care To Your Virtualized Application Services
Healthcare invented the concept of preventative care – the regular analysis of patient health indicators and diagnostics to stay ahead of issues. 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?
5 Health IT Trends To Watch For In 2018
More of the same and plenty of the new are on tap for health IT in 2018. Here are five trends to watch as the year unfolds.
Advanced Analytics Driving Healthcare Transformation
The time has come … Everyone talks about Big Data’s potential to transform healthcare. They understand it’s needed to achieve the Triple Aim: improving patient outcomes, lowering cost of care, and increasing patient engagement.

Research shows the average company loses $141 per compromised record, with the greatest loss in the healthcare industry as $380 is lost per each compromised record – not to mention the legal implications when patient data becomes at risk.
For Hospitals, Predictive Analytics Is A Necessity, Not A Luxury
When thinking about the business value of predictive analytics, hospitals often view it as an evolutionary technology and look for things like use cases, accuracy, cost, and return on investment. While those are all valid points to consider, a better way to look at it is to focus on what truly matters for patients and caregivers, work backwards, and explore how predictive analytics can make them better. Having worked with dozens of hospitals, I can tell you that — when viewed from this perspective — the answer is predictive analytics is a necessity, not a luxury.
