4 keys to transform healthcare

Recently, Neil Jordan, General Manager of Health Worldwide at Microsoft, unpacked four keys to how we can all be involved in the ongoing transformation of healthcare.

Four steps to healthcare transformation

Capstone is partnering with Microsoft to bring solutions that can help health customers transform healthcare and utilise cloud technology.  Here is how Microsoft works with partners, such as Capstone, to bring solutions to bear that can help health customers achieve the four core pillars of healthcare transformation:

  1. Engage patients. People need to be connected to their health information and care system. Increasing transparency and creating high levels of knowledge for those who can make the biggest difference to healthcare—the patients themselves—is essential.
  2. Empower care teams. Health is no longer a solo sport with the doctor at the head of a hierarchical pyramid. It’s a team game. Healthcare has to be delivered in a collaborative way, which means that care teams need to be able to coordinate easily to provide cohesive, connected care for patients. And people who are making decisions along the care continuum need to be empowered with not just data, but actionable insight for more preventive and proactive approaches to health.
  3. Optimize clinical and operational effectiveness. To provide better care to more people at lower costs, health organizations have to be more efficient and effective than ever. They must connect information, people, and processes across the health ecosystem to streamline processes. And they need to empower health professionals and patients with quick, convenient access to insight and resources.
  4. Transform the care continuum. Healthcare must evolve from a “sickness system,” where care is reactive and episodic, to become a true “health system,” where the focus is prevention and wellness management.

The transformative cloud

To accomplish the four pillars of transformation, it’s vital that health organisations take advantage of cloud services. Cloud-driven solutions can dramatically reduce costs and improve efficiency by simplifying information management and sharing. They can also significantly enhance security in the modern healthcare context and allow for better data analysis to inform and improve treatment paths.
