Digital healthcare is not an unattainable mirage, but is alive and well in the United States and throughout the world. The goal of digital healthcare is to use technology to efficiently manage and deliver better healthcare—providing greater value and more positive outcomes to patients at a lower cost. The cloud provides the fastest, most efficient, and most economical way to reach that goal.
Ideally, cloud technology makes the delivery of healthcare fast, flexible, and easier for everyone to use—no matter whether you’re ordering supplies, hiring an employee, or reviewing your budget. However, actual results depend on how you implement the technology and on the vendor you choose as your provider. Every healthcare organization—payers and providers—will have a different path that leads them to digital healthcare. The question is, are you there yet?
To succeed in the extremely competitive
environment of today’s healthcare industry, your
organization needs a strong foundation. These
technology best practices for enterprise resource
planning (ERP), human capital management

rapidly changing industry.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies—
specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and
manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency.
However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved.
While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as
it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the
adoption of new tools and technology.
This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to
using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic
user experiences, everyone is left wanting more. Patients and members want applications that enable
them to manage their health more easily. Providers want to provide new

Speed is the hallmark of the digital age. E-commerce has grown by double-digits since 2010,¹ spurred by the expansion of quick delivery. The healthcare industry, buoyed by online diagnostic tools and patient analytics, has been experiencing record-breaking growth.² And on-demand online learning is experiencing its 13th consecutive year of growth.³
These trends are not unique. “Digital disruption” is no longer a futurist’s fantasy, it is happening now.
Yet talent acquisition lags feebly behind. It takes an average of 43 days for a US company to fill an open position, up from 33 in 2010. That’s right- filling empty positions takes companies longer than ever before, in spite of technological progress. The pace of business is speeding up, but HR is actually slowing down. Nearly every major industry has leveraged digital transformation to their advantage and reaped massive rewards- why not HR?

42% of consumers make the internet their first stop for healthcare information, ranking the web second to actual physicians. Following this trend, healthcare marketers have increased their investment in a variety of digital advertising channels such as native, video, mobile, content and more in order to better educate and inspire healthcare consumers.
But whatever digital channels healthcare marketers choose, the environment matters. Consumers make snap judgments about brands based on adjacency. Over two-thirds of your audience will feel less favorably towards a brand if its placed next to untrustworthy, offensive, or low-quality content. Fortunately for brands the flip side is also true, which is why it’s imperative that you guarantee ad placements that share digital space with premium content. With Oath’s reputation as a trusted publisher, healthcare brands can experience peace of mind knowing their consumers will make positive associations that will increase brand loyalty.
Creating competitive advantage starts with a
sound digital strategy.
In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search
for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites
to steer their decisions about where to go for care.
What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making.
Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your
doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient
rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website.
Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to
generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,”
while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational
improvements and drive new patient appointments.
Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry.
At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not
all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors
of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care.

There are several reasons for this, including the inability of healthcare institutions to constantly monitor post-operative deterioration as well as patient's inability to visit the healthcare center for post-operation followups. Most of the patient data is recorded manually. This data is often weaned from displays of multiple monitoring devices like vitals monitor, infusion pumps, and ventilators. More often than not, these devices do not talk to each other or to a central system.
Doctors, nurses, or other care-givers manually note down patient statistics in their files and notepads. Even though the healthcare industry is in the throes of digitization, there's still a lot of paper doing the rounds. eventually, the data from these physical sheets might be fed into an electronic system, but there is a high chance of error in that process.
