Cloud Connectivity for a Unified Healthcare Portal2 min read
A connected healthcare ecosystem enables a considerably improved experience for both patients and healthcare businesses.
Aligning and unifying patient portals through the cloud is a strong step forward in optimizing care, streamlining processes, and lowering costs. Instead of splitting time between different websites, both patients and healthcare businesses benefit from data gathered from each patient interaction within the care journey.
Monitoring medication regimens and refills, appointment attendance, and progress between patients and care providers means better population health and lower costs. It also means a considerable amount of data is required in order to m ake it work.
Moving to the cloud enables the optimal patient portal: increasing scalability to include every patient interaction, whether it’s tracking interactions, fulfillment of medication regimens, payments, and more.
Take for example, Medstar Health. This provider realized that with multiple hospitals, hundreds of outpatient sites, and millions of customers, it needed to better leverage digital technology to more efficiently deliver healthcare services.
To enable these capabilities, Medstar Health turned to AWS, a leading cloud service known for its auto-scaling capabilities and comprehensive solutions. The AWS platform delivered the infrastructure required for storing and retrieving data, as well as for search functions for doctors, collection and tracking of portal metrics. The result was a single portal in which patients could effectively search for their care records, a cost reduction for the provider of 40% per month, increased speed, and increased page views.
