The provision of medical care is being transformed through the effective adoption of technology. Medical practitioners and managers are now harnessing the information revolution for effective patient care.
The internal adoption of service orientated architectures (SOA) that were prevalent a handful of years ago are now maturing and their use is being extended to customers. This is leading to a vast reduction of paperwork and bureaucracy for doctors, nurses and care workers, whilst producing information to support healthcare management.
Patients are benefiting from online access and online integrations with their healthcare providers, empowering them with access to their personal care plans and supporting information to aid their recovery, or to manage their long term care provision.
All of this beneficial functionality must be blended with comprehensive cyber security provision. High profile data breaches and hacks have illustrated the high black market value of medical records. If the necessary protection is not in place then millions of patients will suffer from their most intimate details being available for criminal use.
The combined consultancy and cyber security services of CCL have a proven methodology and track record that will enable healthcare providers to develop their digital strategies in order to provide digital primary care, underpinned by rock solid cyber security. This will be complemented by strong information governance and comprehensive audit trails that will satisfy the most stringent of health regulatory bodies.
