Healthcare and mobile may appear to have nothing in common. However, one company is using mobile to implement its vision for a better patient, doctor, and hospital experience. Healthcare is a large and, at times, unruly industry due to its size and the challenges associated with patient care. The low priority of innovation and technology for the industry has created a pain point. Siemens is using its comprehensive network to change this paradigm by reducing healthcare costs and changing the way patients receive care.
Duplicate Work Hinders Innovation
Imagine this example: You walk into your doctor’s office complaining of an ailment. Your doctor records these complaints on a paper chart, which is later filed in a cabinet. Storing physical information renders data inaccessible to other doctors, which is especially problematic if information is needed outside of business hours or if a primary physician is away. When symptoms escalate and you are rushed to the emergency room, physical information locked away will not help you receive faster, better care. Siemens streamlines this process by taking patient records online. When medical records are accessed in real time, diagnoses are sped up, and time and money are saved.
Real Time Means Real Life
Siemens has created nearly 500 customized workflows utilizing BPM to transform the way hospitals look at all aspects of care. Everything from evaluating risks to patient discharge, BPM gives administrators the tools they need to drill down to various pieces of the process to solve problems and reduce stress on any one component of the operation. At the heart of Siemens’ network is the organization’s ESB, which brings patient records online, giving doctors the ability to benefit from real-time data to save lives.
