Delivering Smart Healthcare With ICT Innovations

  1. 1. Delivering Smart Healthcare with ICT Innovations Disruptive Technologies and Healthcare Transformation Pawel Suwinski 2010 HIMSS APAC Congress and Leadership Summit Daegu, Korea
  2. 2. “The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it”Mark Weiser M.Weiser, The Computer for the Twenty-First Century, Scientific American, 265 (3), (1991). 2
  3. 3. Introduction• Despite Healthcare Delivery Industry having much to gain from Information and Communication Technologies, it is the slowest from all industries in the adoption. There are many reasons for IT failures in healthcare environment, but the single most important cause is the HIT capability mismatch to address work processes within healthcare service organisation.• Until today, for more than 20 years ICT and healthcare service organisations have been locked in a Love-&-Hate affair with neither being able the break the stalemate. It could be down to that we spent too much time on design and implementation and not on how end user react to already implemented HIT solutions.• HIT investment will only be successful if the fit between IT and clinical processes will be close to matching, which will be reflected by the acceptance or rejection of end users.• In the short history of HIT the emergence of new, disruptive technologies play a crucial role in closing the capability gap and gaining more acceptance from the main users.• The latest innovations are changing not only how the medical care is organised, practiced and delivered but are also redefining host of other qualities including changing patient-physician model and facilitating the emergence of new industry players within the value chain.• Will these Innovations be successful in delivering better, smarter care? 3

  10. 10. Global Trends on Expenditure on HIT License Software Spent by Healthcare• The delivery of care depends on information made available to both: the caregivers and executives. Providers in 2010 in USD Billion The more accurate and timely data the better decision-making processes, and therefore better operational strategies and clinical outcomes can be attained.• The adoption of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is essential for modern healthcare delivery systems to gain greater efficiency, reduce overall healthcare costs and improve patient safety.• In recent years, the acquisition of computer technologies by healthcare organizations has increased substantially with the spending showing upward tendency placing the industry as one of the major consumer of ICT products and services.• In 2009, the Global expenditure on Healthcare Licensed Applications by healthcare providers stood at USD 3Billion for North America, USD 1.9 Billion for Western Europe, and USD 0.8 Billion for Asia Pacific. All three regions will experience high growth rate (on average CAGR ~10%) due to increased demand for healthcare services. 10

  13. 13. Extending Care Beyond Hospitals - Connected Healthcare• Connected Healthcare is a care delivery model that uses technology enabled solutions to expand the care capabilities beyond healthcare institutions to natural human habitats.• The main aim of Connected Healthcare is to maximize healthcare resources, increase preventive and predictive component of care with the expectation of keeping individuals as healthy as possible and less dependent on curative care.• It works through deploying sensor – monitoring devices, data storage and analytics, and communication channels to healthcare providers for decision making process, care planning and delivery. It empowers the individuals to self manage medical needs, and provide cannels for more interactive communications with healthcare professionals.• At present, It is directed at chronic diseases, aged population, and dependency. The scope, however, is rapidly expanding to include entire population to mange health rather than to monitor illness. Smart homes, the mush up of real estate and healthcare is a natural expansion of Connected Healthcare. 13

  15. 15. Empowering Patients/Individuals - Interactive Healthcare• With the adoption of Web 2.0, collaborative technologies were introduced allowing unprecedented level of social interactivity. The use of Web 2.0 applications and resources for health related purposes is called Health 2.0• Health 2.0 has become very popular and important platform for patients and consumers to find health information, interact with each other in virtual communities, and communicate with care givers. It empowers individual to manage own health according to personal preferences.• Health 2.0 provides communication platform to healthcare organisations to reach out to their existing and potential clients. Hospital Portals and presence in the Social Networking Medias (e. g. Facebook, Twitter) has redefined marketing and sales strategies.• According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, 83 percent of Internet users have looked online for health information. New data released by Pew this week show many people are now using cell phones to search for health information - 29 percent of cell phone owners age 18 to 29, and 17 percent of cell owners overall. Its the first time Pew has surveyed health searches on cell phones. 15

  17. 17. Making Care More Efficient - Cloud Healthcare• Cloud Computing is an IT architecture model that virtualises computing resources to deliver them on demand and in required quantities. These resources are highly scalable (almost infinite) and highly available (24/7).• The main characteristics of cloud computing are: – User does not own hardware, network, and application resources – Computing resources are provided through remote data centres on a subscription basis (on demand). – The infrastructure and services are delivered, accessed by user, via web browser (cloud).• In cloud computing architecture, user is running services not on the local terminal but remotely. It means that instead of transferring data from remote host to be processed on the local terminal all transactions take place outside the local terminal.• Healthcare industry is just exploring the capabilities and benefits of cloud computing. The main concern is over security of medical information as all is residing off-site in remote datacenter. However, the economic advantages to healthcare providers are making some to venture into the virtual realm of cloud computing. 17

Such network can be created with data-centre within organisation.• Payment Model is based on subscription or pay-as-you-go. 18
  19. 19. Knowledge care - Business Intelligence in Healthcare• Business Intelligence (BI) is a broad concept describing the process of transforming data into actionable knowledge. In recent years the term has became a label for information technologies: software and infrastructure that facilitate the BI process. Such applications capture, collate, store, transfer, retrieve, and analyse data to generate best choices for strategic decisions in the form of “what- if” analysis, predictive analytics, and multi dimensional data mining that in a blink of an eye deliver, insightful advises for managerial and clinical use.• BI applications act as integration platform across the entire organisation. They connect together disparate systems to collect and exchange needed data. They glue the “silo” environment together to provide a seamless framework for information exchange and processing.• Can be used as Health 2.0 and 3.0 applications linking data sources with analytical capabilities.• By linking applications that otherwise were not communicating freely the BI is able to reduce the manual process effort used to facilitate exchange of information. The automation significantly can reduce access to data as well the occurrence of unintentional human errors while handling the data.• BI solutions provide dedicated informational path linking the source of request/query with timely and relevant information. 19

  21. 21. Moving Beyond Reality - Virtual Healthcare• Virtual Reality is the ability to create artificial environment with the ability to act as it was real. It used advanced technologies to generate space and physical fabric and applies artificial intelligence to add interactive component. It is experienced by two senses (presently): sight and sound.• Lighter version of Virtual Reality – Simulation has been well adopted by most industries including healthcare.• The major users of these technology are gaming and military industries. It has also been successfully adopted by healthcare for simulations, 3D Image modelling for laparoscopic procedures, treatments, rehabilitation, and assessment.• Virtual reality can be divided into: – The simulation of a real environment for workflow processes analysis and design, training, education, therapies. – The development of an imagined environment for health assessment, capability assessment, and therapies. 21
