Digital transformation requires IT and clinical teams working together says Hewlett Packard Enterprise executive

New technology deployments have to be agreed by the clinical management team right from the beginning and delivered to ensure that all stakeholders, clinical staff, administrators and patients are protected so that their experience is made better said Rich Bird, worldwide industry marketing manager for healthcare and life sciences at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Bird said health systems should be able to add, change and remove infrastructure resources at the speed of healthcare, not at the speed of technology. This kind of agility positions a health system to posture its applications cost effectively to maximize their value, carving the path for strategic digital transformation.

These and many other IT trends will be discussed at HIMSS19 in February in Orlando. Mobility and hybrid cloud computing are increasing accessibility for patients and doctors alike. Technology is taking medicine beyond the traditional clinical settings and creating a new continuum of care with the introduction of remote monitoring, specialized apps and much more.

Wearables, the Internet of Things and smart workspaces have improved the way medical staff deliver care, thus allowing doctors to spend more time interacting with patients.

Remote health monitoring system is a technology that betters healthcare outcomes.
