It can become a real nightmare, as the volume of information explodes, technology change rate increases, and the different stakeholders of patient care become more demanding.
Questions are immediately raised:
- Should I keep information in-house?
- How can I give ubiquitous access, but in a controlled way?
- How can I ensure legal requirements are fulfilled?
- What will be the costs in the long run?
Managed services can provide part of the answer.
The presentation will explain new architectures, often grid based, and delivery models for archiving and sharing patient data. It will detail the impacts of the model on IT, finance and the physician.
It also will provide practical examples from Europe and USA, highlighting the lessons learned. Finally, the presentation will identify how the model can smoothly integrate within global eHealth strategies.
