Healthy data is the key to adaptability and digital innovation

By Kerry Stratton, Global Director, Healthcare Solutions for InterSystems.

COVID has been a real test for healthcare providers and their IT providers, creating an incredible urgency and need for responsiveness. The result has been unprecedented digital innovation.

The InterSystems Virtual Summit, from October 20, investigates how we keep on innovating. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s adaptability, this year’s theme.

Earlier this year in China, we had customers set up critical care hospitals with full digital systems within three weeks. For the first time, during New Zealand’s lockdown, we supported a go-live remotely using videoconferencing and other tools at MercyAscot Hospital to complete the first phase of their ambitious digital transformation.

Mercy’s Dr. Lloyd McCann will present “COVID-19: A Catalyst for Innovation” at the Summit. His organisation has embraced the concept of “healthy data” in an innovation journey which will see the adoption of automation, AI and a culture of change.

Others presentations include the NT Government – the first Australian state or territory to standardise on a single system for all its public healthcare sites – and Bendigo Hospital, which will see a transition from mainly paper-based processes and records to a digital healthcare environment.

We are seeing exponential growth in technology capabilities and data volumes. But in healthcare, it is the quality of the data that enables better decisions – something else the pandemic has taught us and, ultimately, the key to adaptability and success.

Attendance at the InterSystems Virtual Summit is free.
