Integration of wearable devices in EMR system

Stakeholders need to challenge traditional practice to make interoperability happen with better wearable device integration with EMR systems.

Most common pervasive challenges in healthcare are communication gaps and data-sharing, continuing between different providers, hospitals, and payers along with various segments within a healthcare ecosystem. Upheaval in healthcare technology promises a future of connected networks with a free-flowing information. This is to bridge the gap between information silos to improve patient healthcare. Jotting the surplus of data sources relevant to patient care management is highly cumbersome but important. Healthcare organizations get distracted from their core competency, while integrating these data sources and acting as a huge blockade to innovation.

Fitness trackers have the potential to keep track of one’s health. Even better custom wearable devices can be integrated to electronic medical records systems. This makes the patient stay motivated with health and fitness goals, while keeping data safe and secure at one point. Fitness monitoring system avails the providers with best space to track of the progress done by their patient, may be in-terms of dirt, more physical exercises or some other recommendation as per the health issues.

Technology advancement in healthcare sector has made it possible to integrate wearable devices with EMR system. It’s clear to say that Vinfotech offers you more than merely an EMR software.

Market Situation

Business conditions encourage providers to practice the wearable devices which are fully efficient to provide interoperable care. There must be standards, or benchmarks to define interoperability. Rapid innovation in wireless technology signifies that interoperability is attainable and must be promoted for all the wearable devices in healthcare ecosystem.

Not every provider or hospital is using EMR solutions for their healthcare practice. Today’s market situation demands to adopt the latest technological trends and follow standards like HIPAA, HL7, and IHE to better healthcare practice and improve patient care.

With the context of limited non-standardized medical devices and dearth of interoperability leads us to search for a standard solution, leading to connect various wearable devices with EMR system and provide a flawless workflow.
