From frontline work with patients (eg, admissions, clinical services, and billing) to backend operations (eg, finance, human resources, and supply chain management) content permeates every aspect of business in modern healthcare organizations. According to Datavant, the US healthcare system now generates approximately a zettabyte (a trillion gigabytes) of data annually, and this amount is doubling every two years. For those attempting to organize and structure content throughout the enterprise, this presents an enormous challenge. However, the potential advantages for healthcare workers, patients, and the enterprise at large is invaluable.
Historically, many organizations have been short sighted in their efforts to collect data. Their efforts to digitize content and processes on a department level have caused data to become fragmented and sometimes duplicative. This has led to numerous inefficiencies resulting from redundant workloads, difficulties achieving value-based care initiatives, disjointed patient experiences, and increased service costs.
Content management systems combined with enterprise imaging enable healthcare organizations to better aggregate and unify their data to help improve treatment options, streamline operations, and move toward a value-based care paradigm. They enable hospitals and health systems to develop more complete, current, and accurate profiles that can improve experiences throughout the patient journey. By integrating with other information managements, such as EMR and ERP systems, this technology can easily scale with content demands, improve transparency, mitigate risks, enhance security, reduce costs, and much more.
