The healthcare industry is poised for a transformation in patient care. As healthcare organizations around the world strive to deliver new treatments and meet expectations for higher-quality care, reduced costs and better outcomes, they face a critical shortage of resources and an increasing incidence of chronic disease, which costs the US economy more than USD1 trillion annually.
To address these challenges and capitalize on tremendous opportunities for improving patient care, healthcare organizations must maximize the value of information available to them. They need solutions that can integrate information from multiple sources and formats, and analyze the increasing volume, variety and velocity of patient data; generate new insights that drive earlier interventions; and help deliver coordinated, accountable, patient-centric care across a range of providers.
