Healthcare has a lot of moving parts that must work together to deliver optimal services for their patients. But bringing all the departments and components of a healthcare system under a single management tool isn’t just challenging – at times, it can seem nearly impossible.
Regardless, having the right technology in place is critical to any healthcare organization, from hospitals and labs to diagnostic centers and treatment facilities. Your patients deserve a seamless experience no matter where they receive their services.
Which begs the question: what does interoperability look like for healthcare and is it achievable?
At Lifepoint, we don’t just believe it’s possible – we’ve made it so.
Facilitating the Entire Patient Journey
Your patients likely have no clue about EMRs or EHRs, or how you’ve interfaced various systems to work with other systems. All they care about is your ability to streamline communication between providers and facilities to give them the answers they need when they expect them.
Lifepoint was designed to meet your patients’ expectations by making communication and data sharing easy, fast, and straightforward for providers and support staff. As a unified platform, consistent workflows allow labs, doctors, and other participants to exchange information, conduct outreach, and coordinate care in a fraction of the time compared to manual tasks or non-interfaced systems.
As a result, Lifepoint enables you to provide accurate care, diagnostics, and other data to your patients and between facilities. The patient’s record can follow them throughout their care so there’s no gap in service or quality.
How Interoperability Delivers the Best Experience for Patients and Providers
When interoperability is achieved, both patients and providers win.
Interoperability helps to reduce costs associated with non-integrated systems. Communication is faster and less extensive. Use of paper, postage, and storage are reduced. Employees are able to remain productive by having all the data they need at their fingertips. Data remains safer and more secure by using the latest technology rather than outdated, non-integrated systems.
Patients get a seamless experience regardless of where they’re transferred, so they can spend less time waiting and more time receiving the care they deserve. Of course, happy patients are also referring patients and won’t hesitate to give your facility a good recommendation – or even a return visit.
How to Achieve Interoperability in Your Organization
Technology isn’t the only factor when striving for interoperability, but it does play one of the largest roles.
Lifepoint design its comprehensive platform to satisfy the needs of labs, heart centers, diagnostic centers, and other facilities and allow them to communicate and exchange information within a single solution.
With this data on-demand model, facilities are improving the level and speed of care they can provide to their patients while also reducing operating costs and increasing their data security.
