Connected Digital Systems

Connected digital ecosystems can deliver consumer-centered experiences that drive value

Imagine an integrated healthcare system where access to medical records in a secure environment is available in real-time for an accurate, consolidated view. Imagine providing consumers proactive tips based on their individual medical history and personal preferences to help them better manage their health. A well-connected digital ecosystem can make all this possible today by leveraging technology to empower consumers to effectively and efficiently manage their health and well-being.

Over the last few decades of growth, we’ve all witnessed healthcare’s evolution – toward patient-centeredness, quality, value, experience, and performance. Pushed forward by convergent trends in technology including interoperability, API adoption, decoupled big data processing and analytics, cloud architectures, real-time capabilities, and machine learning & AI-powered predictive analytics for personalized, data informed, coordinated systems of care are within reach1.  Yet, despite well thought out digital strategies and significant investments in digital transformation, the value and benefits of leveraging a digital foundation to deliver patient-centric, consumer-focused healthcare have yet to be fully realized.

So, what is slowing progress? Participants in today’s healthcare ecosystem often have different goals that makes it more difficult to coordinate care at a reasonable cost or to provide consumers with all the details needed to make informed decisions. To enable alignment across healthcare stakeholders and seamless coordination of care and experiences requires integrating digital pieces into a cohesive connected ecosystem capable of orchestrating and delivering value.
