Software in medicine and administration

In medicine, there are many applications for software and digital solutions. As a prospective buyer you have to keep in mind what the future software should be able to do. There will probably be no software for all areas of administration and medicine. Still, multiple solutions can be combined or merged into one large system, such as SAP or Salesforce.

You are at the very beginning with all your needs and those of your patients. Only if it is known at least to some extent which problems should be solved or which tasks should be digitized, can suitable software be found for your practice or a hospital.

Think carefully about what your software needs to do later. Be creative and open to new ways. If existing work processes are simply digitized directly, real development is nipped in the bud.

Digitization, AI and the transparent patient

Discussions about digitization do not stop at the medical field. This is where the so-called glassy patient with all its advantages and disadvantages comes into play. But before you know it, such discussions quickly drift off into the realm of science fiction.

The truth is that technically, especially in the context of artificial intelligence, although quite a lot is possible, but it lacks in Germany already at the base. In many medical practices and hospitals, the paper economy rules. Important documents and patient sheets are lost or need to be filled out again.

So, before one starts to analyze medical records by an artificial intelligence, the entire administration should first be digitized. Here is also time for new concepts and processes to be prepared for the future. Alone the lack of staff and the demographic change oblige.

Digitization is not a clearly defined term and meanwhile also describes something different than just a few years ago. Today, digitization is all about networking and creating new processes that make everyday life easier. Of the "transparent patient" It may also be a matter of the future – a digital practice is much easier to realize.

Cloud and data security

When choosing a suitable software, you should also consider whether perhaps a cloud solution is in question. There is still some uncertainty about this technology, especially in Germany, but if you understand the principle correctly, you will certainly notice that this is not a short-lived trend.

With a cloud, a lot of administrative effort is simply eliminated, because everything can be controlled from one central location. Flowing transitions between stationary and mobile use on the smartphone are also easy to implement. The operating system sometimes does not care about cloud software, because the application works browser-based.

Of course, this also involves a certain security risk. However, experts can confirm that well maintained cloud solutions, especially on German servers, are many times more secure than stationary systems. In some cases, operating systems such as Windows XP are still in use in the latter, which present significant security holes today.
