Taking the first step towards digital maturity with data access management

As health systems around the world constantly strive for digital transformation, access to all clinical content is now more than ever critical to providing the best patient care.

With organizations’ access to clinical documents, medical images, and other unstructured information, healthcare organizations will gain a more comprehensive view of their patients, improve clinical decision-making and support better outcomes.

Managing unstructured data is one of the major interoperability challenges for healthcare organizations recently HIMSS 2022 The State of Connected Care and Interoperability Search highlights. On average, more than 60% of health systems surveyed do not have unstructured patient records and medical images available for decision-making at the point of care. Electronic medical records alone typically do not incorporate more than 75% of unstructured patient data.

At the HIMSS22 Asia Pacific Conference in Bali this year, Hyland Healthcare – a leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms Over the past 12 years – he will demonstrate how enterprise content services and the medical imaging platform connect unstructured content, images, and medical data to ultimately accelerate business processes, reduce errors, streamline workflows, and improve insights for decision-making.

Striving for Excellence in EMR

HIMSS offers eight-stage (0-7) maturity models that provide guiding frameworks for healthcare organizations to build their digital health ecosystems. Achieving stage 7 validation of the maturity model is a global symbol of the healthcare organization’s dedication to digital transformation.

The HIMSS Electronic Medical Records Accreditation Model (EMRAM) is one of the maturity models for which healthcare organizations strive to reach the highest level of validation. Despite its importance, less than 5% of the organizations in the Asia Pacific region that underwent the assessments actually obtained it. Also, most institutions (82%) did not pass stage 0 or stage 1.

said Andrew Pearce, HIMSS Vice President of Analytics and Global Advisory Leader.

Becoming Digitally Mature

In Australia, while most healthcare institutions are still in Phase 1, Parkville Precinct Hospitals in Melbourne is already leading the pack after recently validating Phase 6 and 7 EMRAM and outpatient EMRAM, with Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) – client Hyland – acquiring The highest credit for the latter. RCH underwent phase 6 and 7 evaluation of EMRAM and O-EMRAM almost simultaneously during the peak of the epidemic.

“We wanted to use the evaluation to drive us to make improvements to achieve the stages we were looking at, as well as to provide guidance on opportunities for improvement in the future,” said Dr. Mike South, chief medical information officer at RCH.

Recognizing the struggles of healthcare interoperability and a determination to achieve digital excellence, Hyland Healthcare will set up a booth at the HIMSS22 APAC trade event to present its expert knowledge on content services, improving healthcare systems and practical ways to improve patient outcomes and increase overall patient experience.
