According to the Leapfrog Group, hospitals in the US pay a surcharge of $5900-$7800 per admission to cover a wide range of medical errors. Smart point-of-care systems address the source of these errors to help reduce healthcare expenditures while improving patient care. The systems reliably connect and transmit critical data for medical devices, clinicians and patients – ensuring information is shared exactly when and where it's needed most.
However, it is extremely challenging to address data interoperability, safety, security and integration with other systems in today's healthcare environment. As data volume grows and becomes increasingly valuable, these issues will affect system and data architecture, especially with the rise of smart analytics used to improve the quality of treatment. Join Tracy Rausch, founder and CTO of DocBox Inc., and Sumeet Shendrikar, RTI Solutions Architect, as they discuss the challenges of developing smarter point-of-care systems and how a data-centric architecture can ensure the right data gets to the right place at the right time to improve patient healthcare.
