WHERE WE MAKE AN IMPACT

Mobile and Cloud Technologies

The healthcare industry has significantly underutilized technology to improve operational efficiency. Most healthcare systems still rely on paper medical records moreover in emerging markets the records are almost inexistent. Information that is digitized is typically not portable, inhibiting information sharing amongst the different healthcare providers. Use of technology to facilitate collaboration and to coordinate care between patients and physicians, and amongst the medical community is limited. Around the globe, healthcare technology innovation and economics suggest that it is time for healthcare information technology (HIT) to be modernized and cloud computing is at the center of this transformation.

BPI believes in leapfrogging healthcare delivery in emerging markets by shifting toward an information-centric care delivery model, enabled in part by open standards that support cooperation, collaborative workflows and information sharing. Cloud computing provides an infrastructure that allows hospitals, medical practices, payers, and research facilities to tap improved computing resources at lower initial capital outlays. Additionally, cloud environments lowers the barriers for innovation and and introduction of HIT systems and applications in emerging markets. Cloud computing caters to the key technology requirements of the healthcare industry: and we are looking to explore better and more efficient ways to • Supports big data sets for electronic health records (EHR), radiology images and genomic data offloading, a burdensome task, from hospital IT departments. • Facilitates the sharing of EHRs among authorized physicians and hospitals in various geographic areas, providing more timely access to life-saving information and reducing the need for duplicate testing. • Improves the ability to analyze and track information (with the proper information governance) so that data on treatments, costs, performance, and effectiveness studies can be analyzed and acted upon.
