Today’s healthcare environment is overwhelmed with data. Internal data from EHRs and legacy systems, external patient data generated by IoT and Wearables, and third-party data from disparate sources that manage receivables, approvals, vendors and so much more. In addition, as the patient moves through various health ecosystems, his data is captured in a format that is tied to a particular system, thus preventing a holistic approach to his care that is agnostic of the source.
Further, as wearables become more of a staple in healthcare, healthcare organizations will have to integrate a variety of devices, apps, and tools all generating data in disparate formats. And as patients become more empowered, they will demand access to their patient data including data from a variety of sources including prescriptions, lab results, and medical history. This will allow them to better care for themselves without having to travel to a doctor’s office to get basic medical information.
Health insurance companies need a constant flow of data to develop appropriate coverage plans, attract members and ensure a quality member experience. They need to communicate with providers for timely approvals, accurate billing info, and population health trends to ensure they can proactively manage the member populations, drive wellness, and preventative initiatives to create efficiencies and cost-effective coverage options.
APIs and Microservices create the bridges between these systems to keep the intelligence flowing.
